OPTIONS


(Brassica juncea, Brassica alba, Brassica nigra, Brassica japonica)  Specially designed mix of mustard greens for use as green manure crop in controlling nematodes & fungal diseases such as fusarium & verticillium, as well as adding organic matter to the soil.  When chopped back & then dug into the soil, the decaying plants release a nematode killing gas - a process called biofumigation. 

Beneficial when used in crop rotation & planted after potatoes to eradicate wireworm.

When left to mature, plants will attract beneficial insects to the garden.

Fast growing & ideal for prevention of soil erosion.

Broadcast as needed & allow to grow.  Plants are then cut back (by hand or mower) anytime prior to setting seed & then dug back into the soil. Allow the green manure to break down in the soil for up to 4 weeks before planting any vegetables.

Broadcast at a rate of 10g/sqm
