Daikon Radish food plot

Finally got my Daikon radishes and Rape in yesterday (yes, probably a little late but I'm breaking new ground). I've read many great things about them as the deer seem to love the tops of the radishes in the early fall and then move on to the radishes themselves in the winter.

The reason I chose Daikon radishes is they are also supposedly good for conditioning the soil for your spring crops.

Anyone else planting radishes?

We plant them in a brassica mix of rape, turnip, and radish. We planted last week of July and they are looking good. Also,.put in some winter peas and radish this year in some of our fields with corn failure. They were put in the ground late, so we will see what happens.

I have some late seeding in this year too on a new area I been working on the property. I usually plant in July but was unable to meet that timing this year, second week of august and last week of august I got things in, we will see. I planted a brassicas blend and some left over soybean seed I got, I expect no pods from beans, just green browse by October. I try to spray in June, twice if needed, and plant in July most years.

Curious how your plot turned out? If you had good growth the deer should be digging for the rest of the radishes at this point of the season. How about weeds, did the daikon keep your weed growth down?
