Fruchtfolge mit vier Beeten - Ein Beispiel

Fruchtfolge mit vier Beeten - Ein Beispiel

This infographic gives an example with which vegetables you can follow a crop rotation in four patches and four years, taking into account nutrient demands and plant families. For this purpose it is convenient to divide the vegetable garden into four areas. Through an annual rotation system different kinds of vegetables can be grown each year, yet respecting the three-year cultivation break for each crop. The fourth patch is reserved for green manure.
