Hottest variety, giving the best biofumigant action due to very high levels of glucosinolates (30% more ITC than our previous basis Blend 119).
Requires good growing conditions.
Fertiliser inputs and irrigation are essential for best results from this variety.
Recommended seeding rate: 8-10 kg/ha.
Timing for incorporation is key for maximum effect. For March to June sowing this normally coincides with flowering. For later sowing, in July and August, incorporation should be made at the right stage for maximum green biomass which might not be when it’s flowering.
Incorporation requires moisture to release gases in the biofumigation process; irrigation should be considered if conditions are not suitable.
