TillageMax INDY® Mix
Tillage Radish® + Tillage RootMax® +
CCS Crimson Clover
- Scavenging and holding nutrients from fall through spring
- Three distinct cover crops species from diverse plant families to help promote a diversified soil biology
- A balance of fall uptake, spring growth, and favorable C:N ratios for favorable nutrient release timing
- Can add some nitrogen through fixation by crimson clover
- Good forage for fall or spring grazing
TillageMax INDY® combines CCS Crimson Clover with two fall N scavengers – Tillage Radish® and Tillage RootMax® in this mix. The cool season growth and combination of the rooting types lead to great fall and spring nitrogen uptake, reducing nitrogen losses over the winter and in early spring.
TillageMax INDY® is a good choice when seeking nutrient capture, nitrogen fixation and slower nutrient release in the spring to prevent early leaching losses. While Tillage Radish® is usually winter-terminated, Tillage RootMax® and CCS Crimson Clover allow a wider window for control in the spring than cereal rye. TillageMax INDY® makes a high quality forage for grazing and can be ensiled in the spring.
TillageMax BRISTOL™ Mix
Tillage Radish® + Tillage RootMax®
- Scavenging and holding nutrients through the fall and spring
- Provides a uniform certified annual ryegrass for easier spring control
- Dense, deep root network for soil compaction relief
- Good forage for fall or spring grazing
TillageMax BRISTOL® combines two excellent fall nitrogen scavengers – Tillage Radish® and Tillage RootMax®. The cool season growth and combination of the rooting types lead to great fall and spring N uptake which reduces nitrogen losses over the winter or early spring. The dense, deep root network of the two scavengers are well suited to alleviate soil compaction.
TillageMax BRISTOL® is a good combination when looking for a good nutrient capture, and a slower nutrient release to prevent early leaching losses. Tillage RootMax® provides a wider window for control in the spring than cereal rye. TillageMax BRISTOL® produces a high quality forage for grazing in the fall. While Tillage Radish® is winter-terminated in most areas, the remaining Tillage RootMax® annual ryegrass may be grazed or harvested for silage in the spring.
TillageMax DAYTONA™ Mix
Tillage Radish® + CCS Crimson Clover
Excellent N Scavenging and Fertilizer Reduction
The high performance DAYTONA mix delivers benefits of Tillage Radish®, the only proven yield-boosting cover crop radish, and absorbs soil nitrogen and other key nutrients with its unique taproot that grows 30” and deeper. CCS Crimson Clover converts atmospheric nitrogen into plant available nitrogen, helping reduce fertilizer input while improving soil health by adding organic matter. Maximum N is achieved at the first flowering of CCS Crimson Clover.
TillageMax DOVER™ Mix
Tillage Radish® + CCS Oats
For Quick Fall Cover and Spring Ground Cover
DOVER combines two excellent N scavengers – Tillage Radish® and CCS Oats in this mix that grows rapidly in cool weather and is ideal for quick fall cover. Tillage Radish® breaks up soil, even in the compaction zone, with its long, singular taproot to create thick channels 30” or deeper. DOVER enhances seedbeds, provides more ground cover in spring, helps control erosion, works to help control harmful nematodes, and will winter kill for easy spring management.
TillageMax CHARLOTTE™ Mix
Tillage Radish® + CCS Winter Forage Triticale + CCS Crimson Clover
For Building Soil Structure and Adding Nitrogen
In the CHARLOTTE cover crop mix, Tillage Radish® breaks up soil compaction with its aggressive taproot, creating soil channels 30” or deeper. This unique nitrogen storage tank holds N and other nutrients over winter and releases them as needed by following cash crops. CCS Winter Forage Triticale soaks up additional N in the fall as well as in the spring, keeping any N from leaching until a cash crop can utilize it. CCS Crimson Clover add up to 50 lbs of additional N in the spring.
TillageMax HOMESTEAD™ Mix
Tillage Radish® + Tillage Sunn™ + CCS Sorghum Sudangrass
HOMESTEAD is a true soil builder, helping restore soil health following challenging conditions like extended drought or flood. Tillage Sunn™ is a tropical warm weather legume that thrives in dry conditions and poor soil, and suppresses nematodes. It can produce over 60 lbs of N in 6 weeks.
CCS Sorghum Sudangrass adds plenty of biomass both in above ground and with its roots. Tillage Radish® is shaded by the two taller species during the summer and then springs to life at the first sign of cooler weather, soaking up massive amounts of N the Tillage Sunn™ produced and storing it for when the newly planted spring cash crop needs it most. Ideal for planting during the summer after small grains, prevent planting acres, or early harvested vegetable crops.
TillageMax TALLADEGA ™ Mix
Tillage Radish® + CCS Winter Forage Triticale
For Easy Control and Aggressive Spring Biomass
TALLADEGA provides a bundle of benefits, starting with the amazing Tillage Radish® taproot that drills right through tough compaction. The winter hardy CCS Winter Forage Triticale excels at soaking up any leftover N from a previous crops or manure application. Can be used as a forage by doubling the seeding rates. This is the mix you need where it is certain there is plenty of N or you have nutrients in manure you want to catch in the fall and release in the spring.
