Great for food plots, winter cattle forage and soil improvements. Daikon Radish tap root looks like carrots growing to lengths of 18 to 24 inches. Deer eat both the green top and the radish itself. Daikon Radish is also used in soil improvements as well as cover crop. Daikon Radish is very aggressive and will germinate and thrive in most soils types around the world. Great for no till food plots!. This is a excellent choice for folks that have table grape or vineyards as a method to open the soil back up and also put back vital nutrients into the soil. The large taproot is where the biggest benefit comes from this aerates the soil. The aeration improves the soil and it also allows for better water penetration and this helps with decreased compaction. I addition to being good for food plots and good for deer and livestock to graze the top of the daikon this also works well with our clover seeds because the clovers give great protein and the top of the daikon gives another choice for grazing but in the end you can take advantage of the tap root to aerate the soil and than disc the clover in after its been gazed for increased organic matter. There are many options with this but most importantly I want to introduce you to another member of the Brassicaceae or Cruciferae Family
