The Process of  alternative cultivation is known as intercroping.

                   The cultivation of two different types of plants in a same field. The second crop is started after completion of first crop. By this process we can conserve soil because unlike plants have different pests and diseases.

                By the cultivation of intercroping more advantages are there

  • The plant diseases can reduce.
  • The dicot plants have rizobiyam bacteria these are nitrogen fixing bacteria. The air containing nitrogen converted into utilized form in the root nodules of dicot plats. This much more helpful for the growth of monocot plants.
