"Fallow" in context

Fallow is a term used to describe land that is deliberately left unused to help improve productivity. This can include land that is left fallow for a season, or even left completely inactive for a number of years. This allows soil and the ecosystem to recover from overexploitation, helping to restore soil fertility for productive use. Fallowing is a common practice in arid, dry areas, but is also used in many other agricultural pursuits as well.

When land is fallow, the crops are not planted and the weeds are allowed to grow.
