ranked four rotations with SDRF and SERF methods, the results of which showed that cereals-oilseed with onion and legume is the preferred alternative based on the two methods. However, when the producer is risk-averse, cereals-oilseed with legume is the best alternative. Therefore, including a legume crop in rotation increases the net present income associated with that rotation in Fars province.
