Choice of break crops to grow in addition to cereals and the fertility building phase are crucial to both the agronomic and economic success of the rotation on organic arable farms. There are four specific functions that a break crop may perform, namely, addition, conservation, and cycling of nutrients; pest and/or disease control; weed control and improvement in soil physical characteristics.

All species assessed had valuable break crop characteristics. Hemp, lupin, and faba bean had the greatest economic potential, but hemp and lupin currently generate poor economic returns.
