Eco-evolutionary agriculture: Host-pathogen dynamics in crop rotations

Fig 4

Best patterns under infection in different conditions.

a) Selection of ten best patterns from 1024 possible sequences when cash yield loss due to infection is computed using the reference values. Each row is a rotation sequence. b) Best rotation sequence in the set of 10 optimal patterns for each of the conditions. The set index corresponds to conditions as indicated in Table 2. c) Intersection array for the sets of optimal sequences under different conditions. Each cell shows the number of sequences found in the intersection between the sets indicated in the vertical and horizontal labels. Highlighted sequences in (a): We allow for the 1024 possible sequences to repeat twice or thrice i.e. two or three generations. Rotation A is the sequence that maximises yield over multiple generations while Rotation B maximises yield only in the first generation but not later on.
