The Mighty Mustard® lineup

Kodiak (Brassica juncea): Suppresses soilborne fungal pathogens and nematodes, produces more biomass than other varieties

Pacific Gold (Brassica juncea): Reduces soilborne fungal pathogens and nematodes

IdaGold (Sinapis alba): Suppresses weeds

Why are there three varieties of Mighty Mustard®?

Kodiak, IdaGold and Pacific Gold all contain very different glucosinolates. IdaGold glucosinolates work to suppress weeds. Kodiak and Pacific Gold glucosinolates are biologically active against insects, some nematodes and fungal pathogens, such as sclerotinia and Verticilium wilt.
 

Can I blend Kodiak, IdaGold and Pacific Gold?

Yes. Based on our experiences, the IdaGold will bolt first, then be taken over by the Kodiak and Pacific Gold.
