Crop Protection

Plant pests and diseases have the potential to devastate the hard work of farmers, leading to substantial reductions in both crop yields and incomes. This poses a significant threat to global food security. The rise and widespread dissemination of transboundary plant pests and diseases can be attributed to factors like globalization, trade, climate change, diminished resilience in production systems stemming from decades of intensive agriculture, and the loss of biodiversity.

Crop rotation is a practice that involves changing the type of crop cultivated on a specific piece of land from one year to the next. In this context, it encompasses both cyclical rotations, where the same sequence of crops is repeatedly grown on a field, and non-cyclical rotations, where the crop sequence varies irregularly to align with the evolving goals and management strategies of the farmer. Effective crop rotation demands strategic, long-term planning. This agricultural technique entails growing dissimilar or diverse crops in a specific area across sequential seasons, ensuring that the soil is not continually depleted of specific nutrients. It serves to reduce soil erosion, enhance soil fertility, and increase overall crop yields.
