The Oil Seed Radish in Sweet Spot is actually the variety Daikon. While it may be similar to Trophy Radishes, it is not the same.

From what I've heard, where similar things are planted in the north, it takes A LOT of cold weather to kill the greens, but once it does, they feed on the roots. I would imagine, down here, the greens will still be growing come Christmas.

some plants will begin to rot in late winter and other will rot in spring as the temperature warms. It all depends upon moisture and soil temps. If it's 80 degrees in January for 2 weeks like we've seen and rainy - they'll be more that start to decay. Other parts of the field will take longer to start to decay. Bottom line is that once they decay - you are getting "free" fertilizer and great aeration.

Most all the brasicas I've ever planted last all through the winter in middle Ga and tend to die out when it starts to get hot in the spring. Most of the browsing takes places in the coldest months, Dec, Jan, Feb.

These seem to be the buzz around our guys. Are they worth it?
Also, we are mixing with another mix of unknown at this time and with some clover. Is there anything these should not be mixed with?

They will mix with any thing as long as you use the recommended rate. Some where I read, or was told, that if you seed them too heavily they can shade out companion crops. I know I was told that 5 lbs, mixed with 50 lbs of wheat would cover an acre. By themselves, 5 lbs will cover half an acre.
