(Tillage Radish® + Tillage RootMax™)

Tillage Radish breaks up soil compaction with its aggressive taproot, creating thick channels 30" or deeper. This nitrogen storage tank holds N and other nutrients over winter and releases them as needed by following cash crops. Tillage RootMax builds soil structure deeper than many other ARG varieties. In combination, this outstanding cover crop mixture provides added cover in the spring prior to control.

Planting: Plant 3 - 10 weeks prior to first killing frost.
Seeding Depth: 0.25 - 1"
Seeding Rate:

  • Drillling: 12 lbs/acre
  • Broadcast/Aerial: 15 - 17 lbs/acre
  • Precision Planting (15" with 1.75" in-row): 10 lbs/acre (Kinze Brush Meter with Backing Plate - 60 Cell Milo Plate)

Control: Tillage Radish winterkills with 3 nights in the mid-teens. Tillage RootMax requires a burndown of one quart of glyphosate. Best control is achieved spraying on a warm day between 9am - 4pm with water adjusted to 5.5ph. If Tillage Radish does not winterkill, add one pint of 2,4-D type herbicide.
