How Mighty Mustard® biofumigation works
Mighty Mustard® contains high levels of potent glucosinolates (GSLs), the biotoxic compounds that make mustard spicy and act as natural fumigants.
Chopping Mighty Mustard® breaks the plant cell walls, releasing GSLs into the soil. Adding water to the chopped mustard allows the myrosinase enzyme to trigger the glucosinolates to release natural chemical compounds called isothiocyanates (ITCs).
At high concentrations, ITCs behave similarly to commercial pesticides and herbicides. Trusted by potato growers for 20 years, Mighty Mustard® is proven to contain high concentrations of the GSLs and ITCs necessary to suppress diseases and target nematodes.
