Abstract: This paper studies the effect of reducing application of chemical fertilizer, increasing application of functional organic fertilizer and trace elements and fully using biological pesticides on biological characteristics, yield and quality of radish. The results show that applying functional organic fertilizer and trace elements and fully using biological pesticides can help to significantly improve the radish fleshy root yield, increase soluble sugar and vitamin C content, reduce crude fiber and nitrate content, but has no significant influence on radish moisture content, glucosinolates and chlorpyrifos content in organophosphorus pesticides.
