Poly culture, also known as polyculture, is an agricultural practice that involves growing multiple crops or species together in the same field or area. This approach stands in contrast to monoculture, where only one crop is grown in a particular area.

One of the primary benefits of poly culture is increased biodiversity. Growing multiple crops in the same area can create a more diverse ecosystem, which can provide habitat for beneficial insects and wildlife. Additionally, a polyculture system can help reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and reduce the need for synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.
