It is recommended to use a break crop (e.g. 1-year break: preferably grass, winter cereal or others; 2–3 years break: mixture of Fabaceae, Sinapis alba and others) before re-planting to homogenize the soil, and also to improve soil structure and fertility and possibly control specific pests, diseases and perennial weeds.

Elimination of sources of disease inoculum (i.e. roots of old plants) is recommended before replanting.
