Fruchtfolge planen: Nährstoffbedarf und Pflanzenfamilie beachten

Fruchtfolge planen: Nährstoffbedarf und Pflanzenfamilie beachten

This infographic helps to plan crop rotation in your vegetable garden. The table shows the nutritional needs and the plant family of the most important vegetables. The nutrients contained in the soil of your garden are best exploited if you first plant vegetables with high, then with middle and then with low nutrient demand befor you add new fertilizers.  To reduce pests and diseases, plants of the same family should never be grown in successive years at the same place.
