Mustard, Agricultural White is one of the fastest growing of green manures. It is susceptible to clubroot so do not use where this is a problem. Sow by broadcasting seeds from March to early September. Dig in before flowering which can be as little as 3-4 weeks to add humus to the soil
Improve your soil fertility, increase the humus content, improve the structure of the soil or simply blanket the bare soil and suppress weed growth whilst the ground is not in use.
WHEN TO SOW
March to September.
HOW TO SOW
Broadcast at 4gm per square metre or in shallow rows 15cm apart.
Reasonably moist and fertile soil
Any time before flowering.
25 square metres. 1 ROD – 5.5 x 5.5 sq. yds. = 30.25 sq. yds. or 25.3 sq.m.
