Benefits of Crop Rotation

Everyone knows there are many benefits to crop rotation and have probably learned about its impact on sustainable farming, but a new research study sheds more light on the subject.

New research from Michigan State University shows that crop rotation increases the function of soil microbial communities that benefit plant growth. It also improves soil carbon levels and total nitrogen concentrations for healthy soil. In fact, researchers showed a 33% increase in soil carbon, a major factor in soil health, when rotational diversity was increased.
