Simple and Diversified Crop Rotations — Approach and Insight into Agroecosystems

  • R. Aldag
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 61)

Abstract

Farm management and the cultivation of soils for production of fiber and food for men and animais has always raised the question of how far man can interfere with the household of nature without disturbing the basis of vital processes. As hunter and gatherer, man’s influence on nature or natural ecosystems was of little importance. As soon as the world population increased, other methods and forms of producing food developed, namely those of modern agriculture.
