Answer: Your first step should be to have your soil tested to find out if you have some soil conditions to deal with. You don't mention any unusual insect pest or diseases that you encountered. Root crops like well drained soil that's loose. Add lots of organinc matter such as compost and try growing them in raised beds. Also, once they germinate thin the root crops so they are at least 3-4 inches apart to form roots. Keep them well watered and they should grow fine for you.
