Japanese radish is an annual temperate herb known for its high feeding value. It is useful as a late autumn / early winter feed in the cooler eastern areas of South Africa. It may be used in the drier western areas but may require supplementary irrigation. It can be used as a fodder bank or source to supplement temperate and/or tropical pastures. Japanese radish has a very high cold and drought tolerance and is best suited for sandy and loam soils. It is an excellent rotational crop with maize and can be used as standover feed for the winter. The best time of establishment is January/February but can be planted in December in the cooler eastern areas of South Africa.
