Crop agronomy covers the management of the fallow, establishing the new crop and growing the crop. Decisions made during each stage of the cropping cycle have an impact on crop performance and yield and therefore the economic return generated by the crop. 

In recent years, best management practice crop agronomy has included the use of fallow legumes, controlled traffic and reduced tillage. Often these practices are combined with raised beds to form a complete farming system.
