Flowers as green manure crop.
Mustard is a quick ground cover that root in the ground up to 70 cm in 6-8 weeks. Sowing time: March – September. If the mustard is sown in spring it will give small yellow flowers in summer. The plant has a taproot and can root quite deep into the ground. As a green manure crop, it is best sown in August-September. Loosen the soil before sowing. The row distance is 20 cm and the sowing depth is approx. 2 cm. Height: 80 cm. 140 grams is suitable for 140 m2. To facilitate tilling, the crop must first be mowed. Mustard takes up nitrogen easily and after tilling quickly releases it again for the next crop.
