Crop rotation is a critical component for pest management in organic systems. Tomato and its relatives (potato, eggplant and pepper) belong to the nightshade or Solanaceae family. Ideally, you should rotate to another family for a minimum of 3 years, but the longer the better. Using green manure and compost can also help with disease suppression. However, using grasses or small grains before a tomato crop can result in high wireworm or cutworm populations.
