White Mustard - Sito

Sinapus alba

  • Helps to suppress weeds and act as a ground cover
  • The deep tap root can grow very deep, helping break up soil and scavenge nutrients
  • Works great as a bio fumigant and suppresses verticillium in potato

    Sito White Mustard has an extremely fast growth which forms a dense canopy to choke out weeds. The deep root system does a great job of recycling nutrients that may have leached past the root zone of crop plants as well. As with all brassicas, Sito is high in Sulphur, which can become available to the subsequent crop when the mustard is incorporated into the soil. It works extremely well as a nematode suppressor and as a natural bio-fumigant. Use in rotation with most grains and vegetables.
