Brown mustard (Brassica juncea) is mainly used in subtropical or tropical areas where it can produce high amounts of biomass. This fast growing crop is well known for its high concentration of the glucosinolate sinigrin. Due to its early flowering, brown mustard is well suited when the cropping-window is small. Brown mustard is a good host plant for the most well-known nematodes such as beet cyst-, root knot- and stubby root nematodes. In our portfolio we have the variety Brons.
