MAXIMUS - Fodder Radish
Maximus fodder radish is a late flowering (50% white and 50% purple colored flowers) variety with high resistance (resistance class I) to Heterodera schachtii (beet cyst eelworm, sugar

beet nematode. Maximus has fast seedling develop-ment and a deep, well developed root system which reduces soil compaction and improves tilth as it burrows deep into the soil profile. Maximus’s rapid initial development can produce a high amount of dry matter yield especially with a generous supply of nitrogen making it well suited as a biofumigant for cover cropping as well as grazing situations and as a green manure plus its “rotten egg” smell is significantly reduced over that of daikon radishes.

Ludique is used not only to control nematodes in the soil, such as the sugar beet nematode (Heterodera schachtii), but also to help control fungal pathogens in the soil such as rhizoctonia, sclerotinia and pythium through the practice of biofumigation. Ludique is an early maturing variety with approximately 40-50 days from seedling emergence to time of incorporation into the soil. Ludique can also be used to improve soil organic matter through the addition of green manure.
