Ukrainian term or phrase: сівозміна
Беручи до уваги тривалість виживання пропагул фітопатогенних грибів у ґрунті слід застосовувати фітосанітарні сівозміни, які б сприяли стабілізації популяцій патогенів та зменшували пестицидне навантаження. При цьому слід ураховувати ряд факторів: ступінь насичення сівозмін сприйнятливими культурами; фітосанітарна активність попередників; тривалість ротації сівозміни; супресивність грунтів; зміну режимів ґрунту під впливом технологій вирощування культур після попередників.

English translation:crop alternation
Explanation:
I don't know however if this is a fixed term in English, or whether a similar term exists in English. The standard English term would be crop rotation (севооборот), but is different in that cropt rotation is a system that:

means that the crops on a certain plot are following other crops ___according to a predefined plan___.

unlike сівозмін (севосмен), which is

More descriptive options may work better, for example "varying crop sequences (in a crop rotation cycle)"

Or just 'crop sequencing' or 'crop sequences' - this is non-binding because it does not say whether these sequences are regular or random.

I would actually prefer crop sequencing because crop alternation is normally between two alternative crops only.

agree  Vladimir Dubisskiy: i believe it is possible to use 'crop rotation' here, (probably there are different variants of it). Not an expert in agriculture though :-)))
