Humans and Crop Rotation

crop rotation

Crop rotation, in your veg garden or in a farmer’s field, is often beneficial. Certain diseases and creatures which have negative impacts on one crop, can be beneficial to others. As the RHS here in the UK says,

‘The principle of crop rotation is to grow specific groups of vegetables on a different part of the vegetable plot each year. This helps to reduce a build-up of crop-specific pest and disease problems and it organises groups of crops according to their cultivation needs.’

RHS on crop rotation

Most veg books will talk of 3 or 4 rotations (see the same RHS link). People who practice this knowledge talk of overall better yields.

Do humans have the same needs? Why do some of us stay in job working on one problem for decades and others of us change every 6 months? What do we ‘build’ up in ourselves, our teams, organisations when we stay? How does change or staying put impact our mindset?

I have seen and experienced the benefits of both in my own life. What about you?
