How it Pays: It's the Decrease in Pesticides!
A soil-enhancing benefit of Tillage Radish® (and another way to cut down on pesticide use) is nematode control. At peak growth, our cover crop radish's long taproot works hard to suppress pesky nematodes deep under the soil.
More good news: the loosening of soil creates micro pores, resulting in water and oxygen infiltration deep in the soil. As organic matter and microbial activity increases (a key sign of healthy, conditioned soil), the Tillage Radish cover crop radish becomes a virtual magnet for highly beneficial earthworms.
In short, Tillage Radish organically brings the good critters you want while keeping the bad guys at bay… it's a win-win!
