Mighty Mustard® Kodiak: A Proven Biofumigant
Diane Green, esteemed organic farmer and owner of Greentree Naturals Certified Organic Farm in Sandpoint, ID, shared the following results from 2014:
"Our experiments with the Kodiak last year were pretty conclusive as to the biofumigant properties. We planted it pretty thick in a couple of beds that were quite weedy from the previous year; then tilled it under and waited three weeks before transplanting into one bed. Waited five weeks on the other bed before transplanting into it, and the weed suppression was outstanding!"
Putting Mighty Mustard® to work in 2015
Diane is continually conducting research on her farm, and we're honored that she's planning to include Mighty Mustard® in her 2015 trials:
"This year, we are going to allow some portions of the gardens to only be planted in Mighty Mustard® for cover crop/green manure, till it under, wait, repeat and see how that does for soil improvement and weed control. Anxious to see how this works out, and as always, will document the process."

Mighty Mustard® is right at home in organic gardens
As a long time grower in Sandpoint, Idaho, Diane Green has a lot of experience with cover crops. Finding crops that grow well on her farm, Greentree Naturals, is challenging due to her northern climate and wildlife that frequently visit. But she's found success with Mighty Mustard®.
"We love it as a cover crop and are certain that it will benefit our spring planting," Diane said. "I think it is a good one to use following spring crops like spinach and lettuce, for sure."
There are other reasons Diane plants Mighty Mustard® in her lush, organic gardens.
"I am a great advocate for crop rotation and the importance of replenishing the soil with cover crops whenever possible. Mustard is an excellent cover crop/green manure because it is a fast germinating seed."

"This stuff really works!"
"We were plagued with a ground vine and a family of bugs that consumed one plant a year. My neighbors complain of heavy weeds and marvel at our garden! Yes, I will be looking for Mighty Mustard this fall to confirm my beliefs, that this stuff really works! Thanks!
