Abyssinian mustard (Brassica carinata) is a very leafy cover crop. In comparison with other brassicas Abyssinian mustard flowers very late and has a high biomass potential. Abyssinian mustard is a host plant for various nematodes; for example beet cyst nematodes will increase during cultivation. Due to high levels of glucosinolates, Abyssinian mustard is suitable for biofumigation. Within our portfolio we have five varieties: Cappucchino, Carbon, Cartoon, and Utopia.
