Enricher Radish

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.

 Enricher radish and oats seeded early august. this gives the benefit of the radish along with added bio mass production of the oats, plus the added benefit of spring erosion control. this mixture is ideal for the first time cover crop user since they will die over winter.

CAUTION: After a killing frost and during decomposition the plants smell like rotting cabbage, which can be very offensive.

 This picture shows the competitiveness of Enricher radish in weed control. note the weed concentration in the wheel track vs the solid stand. weeds just can't compete in a good radish stand.
