Radish is a cool season annual, ideally suited for mixes with most other cover crop species. Enricher Radish will scavenge extra nutrients (especially sulfur) and increase soil biology, but will need 60 days of good weather to achieve its full potential.
When planted alone, it will increase spring erosion, therefore, seed with peas, oats, annual ryegrass, or other cereal grains. It will also winterkill in the high teens to lower 20’s and will decompose by spring. As the radish decomposes, it will release a sulfur smell similar to propane.
Enricher radish will help control several nematode species, and its large taproot is the ultimate bio driller to break compactions and increase water infiltration. The large taproot enables radish to retain a substantial amount of micro- and macronutrients that are prone to leaching during the fallow winter.
