The foundation of organic management is to create a healthy farm system that builds soil fertility and prevents the proliferation of pests, weeds and disease. Well-timed rotations between cash and cover crops can achieve this. Addressed are many of the possible variables in forming the rotation as well as where to find room for compromise between the “perfect horticulture” model and day-to-day logistics. A crop-rotation plan for your farm is no silver bullet, but over several seasons it can improve the quality of the crops you grow and the soil.
