Proven Deep Taproot Improves Soil Tilth and Infiltration
The NitroRadish root can grow to depths of more than 30 inches, allowing the roots to reach subsoil water and nutrients. The deep tap root helps to break-up the compacted soil layers and reach deep into the soil profile and gather "leftover, unused, residual" nutrients and bring them to the surface to be used by the next cash crop. The NitroRadish winter-kills with several nights around 17 degrees, leaving holes in the ground that assist water infiltration and rooting of the next crop.
Nutrient Cycling and Weed Suppression
With its fast-growing ability, the biomass of the NitroRadish recycles the excess soil nutrients and when it decomposes will leave the soil rich in nutrients, and increase your soil organic matter levels. The recycled nutrients can reduce the amount of fertlizer needed to grow the next cash crop. With its rapid germination and vigorous growth, the NitroRadish will suppress weeds by out-competing them for space, light, nutrients, and moisture.
