Oil Radish

An important cover crop in arable crop rotation due to it's ability to reduce beet cyst nematode populations in the soil. Oil Radish also provides organic matter, breaks soil compaction with deep penetrative roots and retain nutrients within the soil to reduce nitrogen leaching . We welcome enquiries for bespoke mixtures and have expert staff on hand to offer advice. Feel free to call 01205 280069 or email info@bostonseeds.co.uk
