Mustard
Mustard

Mustard grows in moderate climates. It is not resistant to sandy and clay soil, as well as high humidity and dryness. It is used as forage and honey grass, green manure and in food industry. It germinates fast and accumulates much green mass for a very short period of time in cold season.

Seeding depends on soil preparation and location but generally it is 10-15 kg/ha.

According to recent research of varieties of mustards, due to its high oil contents it may be used as biodiesel. This liquid is similar to diesel fuel and has good cold flow properties and cetane ratings. After pressing it out, the leftover meal is used as an effective pesticide.

Rapeseed is a cold resistant grass. In winter it stands frosts -15C without snow cover, if covered with snow its unique resistance reaches -22-25C. Spring vegetation starts at 1-3C. It is not very resistant to hot climate under 30C. Growth slows down, pollination gets worse and harvest yield decreases.

It may be sown in any soil. It gives better harvest if soil is free of overdensity and is fertile. Soil quality effects more on harvest ratings under bad weather conditions.
