In agriculture, the skill or practice of raising a mixture of crops and species together in the same place or at the same time so as to maximize overall production. This is in direct contrast to the Industrial Age and early Information Age practice of monoculture. Traditional To'ul'h agricultural practices made extensive use of this strategy. In Terragen history, polyculture practices became an essential part of the support system of Interplanetary Age habs, and have been important ever since.
