Crop rotation
 

Crop rotation is one of the oldest and most effective cultural control strategies. It means the planned order of specific crops planted on the same field. It also means that the succeeding crop belongs to a different family than the previous one. The planned rotation may vary from 2 or 3 year or longer period.

It is beneficial against erosion, pests and diseases, weeds, and helps maintaining soil fertility.
