Optionally add?
description=crop rotation
produce=crop (this is non specific... possibly add detail with 
produce=wheat,barley,crop is specific crops are known?)
comment=crop rotation

When a field is fallow then I would not use farmland=meadow as this is 
incorrect ... unless it is truly used as animal grazing or harvesting 
the plants. Some crop lands are used after harvesting from grazing of 
animals but this is a temporary thing that is a small percentage of the 
time, so I don't map it.. too much to keep upto date and that would be 
confusing for maps that don't update on a weekly basis.
