    Tillage Radish is most known for its taproot which typically penetrates 30+ inches into compacted soils. In the process radishes scavenge residual nutrients and store them in the tuber. These nutrients are released for the following cash crop after the radish winterkills.  Increased yields, improved soil fertility, reduced compaction, weed control, and nematode control can all be expected with radishes!
