Increasing crop diversity through crop rotations can be an option for enhancing crop productivity and soil and environmental quality (Tautges et al.
Mono crop rotations has generally been economically successful, but it has negative biological and environmental consequences, such as-loss of soil organic matter and the degradation of soil physical characteristics (Sulc and Tracy, 2007).
For example, crop rotations and mixed plantings are much better for the soil and environment and for reducing the need for pesticides, compared with single-species monocultures.

Similarly, diversification in crop rotations can also affects soil quality by affecting carbon contents and soil biological activity, due to the difference in chemical composition of different crop residues that are added to soil (Srinivasarao et al., 2013).
Several studies have indicated that application of suitable cropping systems (crop rotations) significant mitigates land degradation in sloping areas (Jankauskas 2012; Cerdan et al.
