Determine the effect of crop rotation on crop yield and quality, disease incidence and severity, profitability and economic risk, soil health and nutrient cycling. Generate a reliable, research-based dataset of production and economic information for a range of climate smart cropping systems and crop rotations in order to determine the effect of different rotation strategies on the energy and resource use efficiency and environmental footprint of various rotations.
