 One of the best tools to improve your bottom line, reduce future grief, and lower the risks of pests, disease and weeds, is by using a diverse crop rotation. To find out more, we’re speaking with Harry Brook crop specialist at the Ag-Info Centre. Harry, when we talk about a good crop rotation, what are we referring to?

Brook says a diverse crop rotation also naturally varies the pesticides used and reduces the chance of resistance developing to pest control products. Conversely, he adds, a tight rotation can quickly develop weed, insect or disease problems, requiring greater expense to control the issue. In the case of clubroot of canola, the only answer is resistant varieties, and that tolerance has already broken down. For more information, call the Ag-Info Centre at 310-FARM, 310-3276.
