Combination planting — where certain crops are planted together to stave off pests or enhance taste — is as old as farming itself. But up until recently it’s been difficult to be precise about where and how different crops can benefit from each other. Benedikt Groß, a UK interaction designer, is using algorithmic processing t0 improve on a practice that’s thousands of years old.
