Scientific experts from the National Institute of Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock Research (INIFAP), generated an investigation regarding the association of bean and citrus crops, carried out in the north of Veracruz, with the objective of promoting the sowing of said legume, comparing the association with citrus fruits with respect to monoculture, besides knowing the benefits of each system and the relative efficiency of the land.

The association of crops is a technique that involves planting two or more species on the same surface, at the same time, to cause a complementary relationship between crops and increase production efficiency compared to monocultures.
