Publisher's Comments

Part of a set of eight organic farming handbooks, this guide to crop rotation and cover crops was originally published as Soil Resiliency and Health; Crop Rotation and Cover Cropping on the Organic Farm in 2004 by the Northeast Organic Farming Association. Written for farmers, homesteaders, and serious gardeners in the Northeastern US, the guide presents best practices in the areas of tillage, weed control, grouping crops, cash and cover crops, good rotation, and economics of rotations and cover croppings. Case studies of two organic farms and sample crop rotations have been included. Kroeck is the owner of Chrystal Spring Community Farm in Brunswick, Maine.
