Tinker's Gardens — Vegetable Gardening - Crop Rotation
Crop Rotation
Failure to rotate crops annually will result in increased soil borne disease, nematodes, soil insects, imbalance of essential mineral elements, and a dramatic decline in productivity. Crop rotation is the most economical ways to aid in prevention and control of insects and disease. Vegetables in the same family grouping are likely to be susceptible to the same diseases and organisms. Rotate these groups so vegetables from one group are not planted in the same location more than once every 3 to 5 years.
