Daikon Radish establishes quickly and is used as a leafy green pasture herb that is especially rich in minerals. It is suitable as a feed for all livestock and performs well in both cool and hot climates. Daikon Radish has a large deep taproot and is also referred to as a “tillage radish” as it acts as a natural plough, increasing soil aeration and nutrient/moisture uptake. The taproot of the Daikon Radish is rich in nutrients and these are stored over winter until spring when it rapidly decays, releasing nutrients for a spring crop. The Daikon Radish can be grown as a specialty crop or part of a mix which also helps to suppress weeds. The bulb taproot has white or pale green skin and white flesh.
