PermVeg: a generic tool to design and assess crop rotations for permanent vegetable production systems; User manual

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This manual describes a generic tool to design and assess alternative vegetable rotations. The model combines vegetable crops to generate all possible crop rotations for a given period, based on a number of explicit criteria (objectives and restrictions) controlled by the user. The criteria eliminate in early stages those crop rotations that are undesirable. The criteria relate among others to the most important socio-economic and environmental factors in vegetable production, i.e. profitability, labor requirements and costs of pesticide use.
