Considerations:

Because of large percentage of oats, there is minimal lasting residue with Soil First® 150. If grazing, introduce Soil First® 150 slowly and don’t allow brassicas to ever make up more than 1/3 of livestock’s diet.

Termination:

Radish will terminate with multiple nights in the teens. If radish over winter, glyphosate and 2,4-D provide effective control.
