Diversified crop production is essential to the sustainability of the soils, pest prevention, and nutrient utilization.
To support a healthy potato rotation, grain crops are farmed as part of a three to four year rotation on the land. These grain crops include corn, sorghum, wheat, and rye.
Cover crops planted immediately following potato harvest prevent wind erosion of the sandy soils. Rotational grains provide benefits to soil health in fertility, as well as disease and pest management.
ROTATIONAL FRUITS & VEGETABLES
Farming in the bread basket of the San Joaquin Valley in California, we have found multiple opportunities to grow value added fruits and vegetables in rotation with potatoes. Carrots, watermelon, and garlic are just a few examples.
We continue to look for ways to partner with like-minded companies in other commodities.
