Differences among preceding crops, even under the conditions of high intensity procedures, are fully retained. The planting of winter wheat after other winter cereals is to be avoided because of the increased incidence of foot rot organisms. Two plantings of winter rye in succession should also be avoided on all better grade soils. Planting of rye twice in a row is permissible only on sandy soils. Summer barley is to be preferred to oats after root and tuber crops. Oats respond poorly when placed after root crops; it should be planted after cereals.
