Increasing crop diversity mitigates weather variations and improves yield stability

Core Ideas:

More diverse rotations (corn-soybeans-wheat-red clover) reduce the likelihood of crop failure compared to simple rotations (ex. corn-soybeans), especially in hot and dry years. Rotational diversity also contributes to yield benefits for both soybeans and corn. Diverse crop rotations are an important strategy to buffer crop yields against a changing climate.
