Daikon Radish is known as a “tillage radish” because of it’s large, long, carrot-like tap root that is excellent for penetrating down through soil to break it up and allow water and nutrients to flow. Used primarily in cover crop blends, but also in home gardens as an edible vegetable. Also consumed by wildlife and livestock. Plant 5 lbs per acre at ¼” deep in the Fall or Spring.
Pollination occurs by insect, bird, wind, humans, or other natural mechanisms. Because there are no restrictions on the flow of pollen between individuals, open-pollinated plants are more genetically diverse. However, as long as pollen is not shared between different varieties within the same species, then the seed produced will remain true-to-type year after year.
