Increase Water Penetration and Add Biomass

Cool Season cover crop

Mustards attract beneficial insects, provide substantial quantities of organic matter and have a large deep root system, which increases water penetration. In addition, members of the Brassica genus including radishes, rapeseed and mustards contain high levels of compounds called glucosinolates that when released into the soil breakdown into isothiocyanates which act as natural bio-fumigants in the soil. They have been shown to have nematicidal properties when mowed or chopped and tilled into the soil. Our mix is a special blend of “hot mustard” varieties that are known to have higher levels of these compounds.

  • Application Rate: 12-15 lbs/acre or 0.5 lb/1,000 sq ft
  • Inoculant: None needed
