Because of its unique plant characteristics, Driller Radishes provides both environmental and financial benefits in an easy to manage cover crop tool. When Driller’s taproot hits a soil compaction zone, it “bio-drills” deeper into the soil, breaking up compaction, improving water infiltration and the movement of air and nutrients deep in the soil. Driller Radishes also catch residual nitrogen (N) and other key nutrients both above and below the compaction zone. Driller Radishes will winterkill when temperatures drop into the low 20s F. The residue that remains helps shade out winter annual weeds and releases the nutrients it has sequestered to the following crop.
