Summary

By relying on these principles, it is possible to design rotations that are more favourable to the preservation of soil health while taking into account the organisational constraints of a farm and economic opportunities.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Learn how to design rotations that are more favourable to the preservation of soil health.
What problem does the tool address?:In protected vegetable systems of the Mediterranean area, rotations are based on a limited number of species and botanical families. In the long term, this favours the development of soil pests and diseases.
What solution does the tool offer?:In order to diversify rotations, a workshop brought together DiverIMPACTS case study 25 (CS25) participants including farmers, technicians, marketers and scientists, to highlight the importance of: 1) including summer crops of variable cycle length in order to allow the implementation of soil solarisation (thermal soil disinfection based on solar energy); 2) including green manures at different times of the year; 3) choosing species that allow cycle shifts to desynchronize pest cycles but also that take advantage of market opportunities.
