Continuous Cropping With The Same Plant

What would happen on the crops of cucumbers, tomatoes and eggplants,

etc., planted on the same place continuously?

There would be in time a decadence of crop from soil exhaustion, but

that you could prevent by fertilization. The greatest danger from

continuously growing these vegetables on the same land is the

multiplication of bacteria which injuriously affect them, in the soil.

The plants which you mention are all subject to "wilt" diseases from

this cause, therefore, they should have new ground. If you have to use

the same garden ground continuously, the plants which you mention should

be rotated with root crops or with other kinds of vegetables, so as to

frequently change plants and soil within the general area which has to

be used for them.
