NitroRadish is ideal for planting in the late summer or early fall. Significant amounts of Nitrogen can be captured by this cover crop when planted 30 to 60 days before the first killing frost. NitroRadish can work very well in a blend with other cover crops. NitroRadish is fast growing, cool season cover crop. It winter-kills, it does not need to be killed or incorporated to prepare a spring seedbed (in cold climates).
Seed 8 to 10 pounds per acre when planted as a stand-alone crop. Radishes may be drilled, broadcast, or aerially seeded. Drilling is recommended for the best results. Plant seeds ¼ to ½ inch deep with average soil conditions. If the soil is dry, it is recommended to plant a depth of 1 inch.
Avoid planting in low spots that collect water. Daikon radish is tolerant of frost until temperatures dip below 25 oF. It takes several nights of temperatures in the low 20's oF to kill Daikon radish.
