Subject: Oilseed Radish
Does anyone on the SA-Net have information on Oil (or Oilseed)
Radishes? A farmer from NE Indiana has contacted me about using the
plants as a cover crop to meet residue levels in corn and soybean
production. He stated that he received only minimal information at a
national machinery show in Louisville, Ky and was told that the crop
is mainly used in N. Michigan and nearby Canadian provinces.
Information being sought in seed source locations (!), any existing
planting information (seeding rates, fertility info., planting dates,
etc.), and any experiences SA Netters may have had with the crop.
