Green Cover Seed is proud to market the all new Smart Radish. It is bred specifically for the cover crop and soil health market. The variety has a trait for higher plant tillering to provide more leaf area and higher plant biomass than many other radish options for forage, soil, cover and green manure. Larger leaves mean more solar collection area to harvest the sun’s energy, and the smoother leaf means it’s better for forage and grazing.
