Soil Compaction Mitigation

Soil Compaction Mitigation

When cover crops with good root growth, such as radishes with their taproots or cereal rye with its fibrous root network, are planted, they create pathways in the soil to allow air and water flow and relieve soil compaction. This allows rainfall to penetrate the soil layer, improves subsurface soil moisture, and allows other crops to root deeply.
