The Tillage Radish® difference

Notice how the taproot drills straight down to break up compaction like no other radish. Despite the claims of other radishes there is nothing else like the Tillage Radish®.

The highly aggressive taproot

The Tillage Radish® taproot grows with amazing consistency all along its length. Root hairs grow from the tuber as well as along the taproot. But this taproot is hungry for nutrients trapped deep in the soil.

How deep is deep?

This carefully extracted taproot was grown for research purposes. These very deep root penetrations build soil health deeper in the profile than any other cover crop radish. The taproot opens  channels through compacted soil to enhance moisture absorption and capture nutrients for use by succeeding cash crops.
