Radish is a cool season annual, ideally suited for mixes with most other cover crop species. Enricher radish helps break up compaction, scavenge leftover nutrients (especially sulfur) and increase soil biology. Radish needs 60 days of good weather to achieve its full potential. Planted alone, it will increase spring erosion, so it must be seeded with peas, oats, annual ryegrass or cereal rye. It will also winterkill with two days of 20 degree temps and will decompose by spring.
Enricher Radish helps control several nematode species. Its large, fleshy taproot is the ultimate bio driller to break compaction and to allow increased water infiltration.
CAUTION: After a killing frost and during decomposition the plants smell like rotting cabbage, which can be very offensive.
