Besides providing cover for your soil there are many more benefits to using the greener mix. Growers are very pleased with the excellent weed control, especially in controlling Palmer Amaranth. Savings from using fewer herbicides in the next crop more than pays for the cost of the seed. Savings in fuel costs due to the deep tillage of the radish is another helpful benefit. The greener mix provides great drought tolerance to the next crop. We call it “poor man's irrigation.” There are many more benefits we could list, but the best report from farmers is how it brings profit to their billfolds. We hope that you will get your soil health fix.
