  • Eco Till™ Radish

    Eco-Till Radish is a Daikon type forage radish variety specifically developed for fall/winter cover crop applications. These radishes offer impressive benefits to the soil and the environment including the reduction of soil compaction, improved nutrient recycling, increased organic matter, enhancement of soil tilth and suppression of weeds, to name a few.

    A superior, deep penetrating taproot is one characteristic that separates Eco-Till radishes from the competition. The thin, lower portion of the taproot can grow to a depth of six feet or more while the thick upper portion of the taproot can grow to a length of 24 inches. This taproot creates vertical holes in the soil profile that breaks up soil compaction and improves soil tilth. This process, known as “bio-drilling”, improves water infiltration, aeration and fertilizer efficiency for succeeding crops. Equally important is the ability of these radishes to take up nutrients from the soil profile to be stored in the tissues near the soil surface and make them readily available for use by the following crop.

  • Jackpot Hybrid Brassica

    Jackpot forage turnip is a new low-growing variety bred for use in grazing operations and for cover cropping. The Jackpot bulb top doesn’t protrude from the ground as much as old varieties, allowing it to stay protected from animals as they graze. This allows for better regrowth and higher forage yields. In addition, Jackpot has excellent palatability, helping increase weight gains. Jackpot is also an ideal choice for cover crop use. Its bulb helps break up soil and protects against wind and rain erosion. Jackpot has multiple crowns on top that enable multiple grazings.
