Tillage Radishes & Pasture Compaction

Coming up next week, a highlight of the Pasture Program project on reducing compaction in pastures using practical, inexpensive methods.   One aspect of the project has been assessing keyline plowing.  The other method has been the use of tillage radishes.  Tillage radishes, a variation of the daikon radish, have been tested for use addressing compaction on cropped land.  Using them to address compaction in pastures is a new application.

If you'd like a sneak preview, check out this field-recorded video:
