Exploring the Interplay between Crop Rotational Diversity and Landscape Complexity

06 May 2024

Using interpretable machine learning methods, we studied the relationship between crop rotation diversity, and landscape diversity including biophysical characteristics in Northeastern Germany. We reveal a spatial trade-off between crop rotations and landscape diversity. Our finding suggests that strategies should aim to enhance both crop and landscape diversity jointly to gain their synergistic positive impacts on agricultural production and ecosystem management.
