Crop rotation can have major influences on yield, which may be the result of changes in the composition of the rhizosphere microbiome. In particular there is evidence that yields of both oilseed rape and wheat can be influenced by the frequency in which they are grown in rotation with each other. In the current study we investigated the effect of preceding crops (either wheat or oilseed rape) on wheat and oilseed rape yield, with associated changes in the rhizosphere and bulk soil communities of fungi, bacteria and nematodes using terminal restriction fragment length polymorphism (TRFLP) of rRNA genes. Yield of wheat and oilseed rape were reduced by 11 and 10% r...
