Cropping systems

Definition (

A cropping system is a producer’s map of their approach to production. It can be as complex or as simple as he or she would like to make it. A conventional tillage wheat-fallow system represents the simplest system, whereas a more complex system of no-till winter wheat followed by spring peas, followed by camelina represents the other extreme.
