Polyculture

Track 18 : Polyculture

Polyculture is the process of simultaneously producing multiple crop species in the same area. Polyculture makes an effort to form the diversity of natural ecosystems in this manner. The antithesis of monoculture, which involves the cultivation of only one type of plant or animal, is polyculture. While using less chemicals, polyculture can help control some pests, weeds, and illnesses. Due to biological nitrogen fixation, intercropping legumes with non-legumes can boost yields in low-nitrogen soils. However, due to competition amongst the mixed species for light, water, or nutrients, polyculture can lower crop yields. Because diverse species have varied growth rates, maturation times, and harvest requirements, management is made more difficult. Monocultures are easier to automate
