Solution

The correct option is C

Mixed cropping


In mixed cropping, two or more crops are grown on the same piece of land simultaneously. It is done so that they can efficiently utilize nutrients present in the soil. It benefits the farmer as he can grow a different variety of crops at the same time. Even if one of the crops fail, the others will make up for it.
