How to shorten my crop rotation

The ideal is to have a rotation gap of at least three years, although in reality, any duration of rotation is preferable to none at all. Even a single year of rotation can disrupt the life cycle of pests and diseases, as well as help spread out the need for specific soil nutrients that some crops prefer but others don't.

If you have two greenhouse beds and cultivate plants from two different crop families, you may simply swap them out each year. If you develop more than two crop families, you'll have to choose which ones to plant adjacent to them other. To team up in a bed, consider plants that require comparable growing circumstances — tomatoes and cucumbers, for example, can both benefit from supports and require potassium-rich soil and fertilizers to thrive.

Tomato hooks

Depending on the rope thickness, rope length, colors, color order and clear packaging, we always offer a solution to suit your needs and requirements of the crop. Quality and delivery reliability are two important pillars for the delivery of these important products.


Substrates, including substrate mats, are an important part of meeting crops' needs. Stone wool mats, for example, are not suitable for every crop, because every crop has its own challenges. Moreover, substrate mats are available for single use or for use over several years. Royal Brinkman offers a wide range of Grodan substrates for both vegetable and ornamental cultivation.
