Dikon Radish is a winter radish used to improve soil tilth, reduces soil compaction and assist in recycling deep hard to reach nutrients. The radish decomposes quickly in the spring, leaving large holes in the soil which assist in enhancing soil aeration and water penetration. This can be beneficial for no-till growers, or others looking to reduce spring tillage.
The tops are palatable to livestock and wildlife, which make them a perfect addition in fall pasture blends, as well as wildlife blends.
