Oilseed Radish

Cover Crop Seed

Product ID: 2906

Alleviate compaction.

As a cover crop, the extra-long taproot breaks up and aerates the soil in addition to drawing up nutrients for following crops. When turned under just before flowering, its decomposition helps to control soil-borne pests, especially cyst and sting nematodes. Avoid using in close rotation with cole crops due to similar pests and diseases. Hardy to 20°F. Sow at 1 lb./1,000 sq.ft. or 10-20 lb./acre in the fall. Avg. 31,350 seeds/lb.
