Radishes have many cover crop benefits.  They provide cover to suppress weeds, scavenge for nutrients, can reduce compaction, and even allow for quicker soil warm-up in the spring as plants and roots decay leaving the soil open for sunlight penetration. Rapid decomposition allows for increased initial nitrogen availability for the spring planted crop.
