Spanish term or phrase: por sustitución de cultivo
El 90% de la superficie agraria útil está ocupada por olivar. Esta superficie ha ido creciendo por sustitución de cultivo (principalmente cultivos herbáceos) y sobre todo, se ha ido transformando en un sistema de regadío, que representa en la actualidad más de la mitad de la superfcie de olivar en esta comarca.

Does this simply mean that they have changed which crops they grow?
