Tillage Radish (Raphanus sativas)
The Tillage Radish has a particularly deep tap root, which helps to improve soils structure and drainage by drilling down through heavy soils and compacted layers.
Tillage radish is a deep rooted brassica, used to improve soil structure. It has a deep rooting ability to break through compacted layers and plough pans, creating better drainage and air movement within the soil. Although originally utilised in the states, it has been used in the Uk for the last several years.
