Most vegetable gardeners know to rotate their crops from bed to bed to increase yields and feed the soil. What works on the allotments and our gardens is bound to work on field crops as well...it has been known about for hundreds of years.

the difference here is that for the first time thirdworld farmers are being organised to rotate their crops rather than only being able to grow their own food they now are encouraged to sell and generate income.

In the UKone can see the Medieval field systems as long rows still vissible after all this time. Strip farming was a form of rotational cropping they have now found through pollen anaysis.
