Alternative Crops and Cropping Systems

Alternative Crops and Cropping Systems

Crop diversity is a key tenet of sustainable agriculture. Having multiple crops that fill distinct niches in an agro eco system improves the ability to manage weeds, diseases and insect pests as well as potentially improving the environmental performance of the cropping system. The goal was to write a book where as many different existing studies as possible could be presented in a single volume, making it easy for the reader to compare methods, results and conclusions.
