Planting the same types of plants in the same spot year after year can lead to a build-up of insect and disease pests. Rotating crops in the same plant family for each garden area can help prevent this from occurring. The best results are from areas with the longest rotations. If  you can rotate crops for one year, that is good. If you can rotate crops for two years, that is better. A four-year rotation is best but may not be feasible due to space limitations. Visit the fact sheet below for a table with a listing of vegetables and their plant family to help make a rotation plan for the garden.
