It is commonly stated that the most important decision in a farming operation for long-term sustainability and profitability is minimizing pest incidence and maximizing yield potential through beneficial crop rotation. However, commodity price fluctuations still cause some operations to capitalize on short-term gains by shortening rotations, and this can put undue stress on the farming enterprise with the increase for long-term pest problems, and can lead to industry-wide issues such as pesticide-resistance in weeds, diseases, insects, and other major problems in crop production to occur. Hence, there is a need for continued research not only on the effect of crop rotations, but other agronomic principles that can be manipulated to improve management practices or methods to alleviate or solve problems when issues arise.
