Peaceful Valley Mustard Mix Seed (lb)

Peaceful Valley Mustard Mix Seed (lb)

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. 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
  • Germination: 5-10 Days
  • Plant Height: 3-4'
  • Uses: Attracts beneficial insects, loosens soil, improves water penetration, possible nematicidal properties, and adds biomass
  • Facts to Note: It is important to water in after tilling.

Contains: Brassica juncea mustard, Braco white mustard, Nemfix mustard, Canola (Brassica napus)

I bought it years ago and planted this year. It germinate fast despite of about 2 years kept inside basement. It's beautiful now after six weeks. This is the first using cover crop. I will follow up the review next year.

First succession of small scale food forest

Packaged well and arrived on time. Seed looks great and price/# is very fair. Along with other PVF cover crop mixes, this mustard mix will be the first succession to nursing my heavy clay soil back to health as food forest becomes established! Thank you!

Fast Germination

So far I've only had the seed in my raised beds for a week and a half. The seed germinated really fast and I'm looking forward to seeing how it does.

Highly viable seed

With raised bed soil temps in the mid 50\'s, I got germination in less than a week. I only watered at planting and it has been dry and sunny for 5 days. The seed appears to emerged at near 100% of the density it was broadcast (and raked over) at
