Bio-fumigant Mighty Mustard® is an all-natural, broad spectrum cover crop that improves soil while suppressing weeds, insects, and soil-borne diseases. It contains allelopathic chemicals which naturally inhibit weed growth and suppress soil-borne plant pathogens. Mighty Mustard is a cover crop seed that we are proud to carry for our customers.
One benefit to growing mustard is that it can be grown during the off season – so growers do not have to lose money and time during their more productive seasons.
Farm Fuel provides Ida Gold Mighty Mustard which limits weeds and Pacific Gold Mighty Mustard which limits pathogens. Mix the two for the best of both worlds!
