Mighty Mustard Seed Mix For Cover Crops

Mighty Mustard mix is a blend of the following varieties:

40 % – White Gold Mustard
40 % – Kodiak Oriental Mustard
20 % – Pacific Gold Oriental Mustard

Kodiak (Brassica juncea): Suppresses soilborne fungal pathogens and nematodes, produces more biomass than other varieties

Pacific Gold (Brassica juncea): Reduces soilborne fungal pathogens and nematodes

White Gold (Sinapis alba): Suppresses weeds, produces more biomass than other varieties

Might Mustard Mix is a popular mix for cover crops. We have combined our highest biomass producers to give your soil a total makeover with both soilborne pathogen and weed suppression benefits. White mustard has been used as a cover crop for the control of nematodes. Mustards generally require 8-10 weeks of soil temperatures of 60 degrees F to get satisfactory plant growth and cyst nematode suppression. Mustards are sensitive to cold temperatures, with a  winter-killing at about 25 degrees Fahrenheit. Use later maturing varieties for the easier managing. Mighty Mustard bulk seed mix can become a contaminant in future crops if not used properly.

Kodiak, Pacific Gold and White Gold all contain very different glucosinolates. White Gold glucosinolates work to suppress weeds. Kodiak and Pacific Gold glucosinolates are biologically active against insects, some nematodes and fungal pathogens, such as sclerotinia and Verticilium wilt.
