If sown in spring, Mustard produces small yellow flowers in summer. Because the plant has a taproot, it can penetrate the soil quite deeply. As a green manure crop, it is best sown in August-September.
To facilitate sowing through, mow the crop first. Mustard easily absorbs nitrogen and, after digging, quickly releases it for the next crop.
Sowing instructionsRow spacing 30 cm. For seed production (to make mustard) sow in April, harvest in September.
For sowing in March to August: mow the plants before they produce seed. Loosen soil well before sowing
When sowing in September, the plant will normally be unable to produce seed. Loosen soil well before sowing. Rule spacing is 20cm and sowing depth is about 2cm.
In winter yellow mustard freezes to death.
