There is also concern that the increased demands for these grains will negatively impact crop rotations, particularly those that help conserve soil, water, and plant nutrients. One of the primary reasons corn and soybean are currently popular for biofuels over lignocellulosic crops is the comparatively short time to harvest maturity. Most of the lignocellulosic crops require three to five years to reach harvest maturity(Hill, 2007), compared to one year for corn or soybean. Though corn and soybean are regularly rotated with one another, history has shown that a substantial increase in the price received for any crop can encourage monocultures at the expense of proven rotations and their accompanying benefits.

Pettigrew, et al. (2007), noted that cotton plant height increased 10% in plots following one year of corn and 13% following two years of corn when compared to continuous cotton (Table 4). Lint yields increased 13% following two years of corn primarily due to a 13% in bolls per m2. No other increases were noted however. , (2007) found that following two years of corn production, reniform nematode populations remained below damaging levels to the cotton plants. However, cotton following just one year of corn would have reniform nematode populations rebound to damaging levels towards the end of the growing season.
