ThanksI've not done it, but found the data sheets provided by the Alberta Government to be quite helpful with niche crops. They have one on mustard here: https://open.alberta.ca/dataset/57487180-dcf7-4d7d-93db-57f44db9a79b/resource/bc660767-eeab-4c36-b035-9fba489f89ce/download/4563228-2010-agri-facts-mustard-production-alberta-143-20-1-2010-01.pdf which has info on harvesting.
Obviously some of the info is for a different climate to ours, so it may not cut the mustard...
I have a mustard catch crop (only 4 acres) which i hope to harvest, i reckon it will be a November harvest.Nobody ever done it?
I autocast mustard in early August on set aside one year was in flower end of October even got mentioned on a previous forum when someone went by fro out of county as rape in flowerI hope so I’ve got 90 acres in flower at the moment.
No we didn’t but I’ve planted some again so might have a go this time.
Erm depends on soil type and weather. Topping and glyphosate then drill direct where possible.
do you spring crop after this mustard or autumn? wheat i guess?Erm depends on soil type and weather. Topping and glyphosate then drill direct where possible.
I’m looking for a disc/press combo though as I’ve used one this year and it’s done a great job set at 1-2 inches deep. Not deep enough to disturb buried grass seeds but deep enough to chop and mix the mustard. This is some planted about 5 weeks ago. It’s in flower today.
Always a spring crop. I know a lot of people don’t like because it offer not proper rooting, but it’s cheap and if you top it the biomass it goes into the ground anyway. This years we’ve got mix 70% mustard and 30% raddish.do you spring crop after this mustard or autumn? wheat i guess?
