Crop rotation or companion planting?

Which works better? Rotating corn, beans, squash or planting them all together?
If you plant them together, are you still supposed to rotate or do you keep planting them together all the time?

They both work fine for the tasks they're supposed to accomplish. Crop rotation helps with plant disease and pest control and companion planting can help with plant interactions(some pest control, some helpful plant benefits etc.).

You should still rotate the location so pests in the soil don't have access to the same plants in the same spots.

Squash bugs are terrible to have and they will get into your squash (depending on where you live) and will come back every year. If you are in an area that supports them, you have to rotate the crops, but put as much distance between the first location, the second, and the third as you can.
