About Mighty Mustard IdaGold Yellow Mustard Seed Mighty Mustard seeds make for the healthyiest garden you will every know, without the use of chemical pestisides or fertlizers. Here is how:

1. Suppresses weeds & soilborne pathogens
Mighty Mustard™ contains high levels of glucosinolates, natural chemical agents that make certain members of the brassica family spicy. Mighty Mustard’s™ glucosinolates deliver a deadly punch to many soilborne pathogens and weeds, making them an effective, all-natural alternative to chemical herbicides.
<
2. Reduces insects
The all-natural glucosinolates in Mighty Mustard™ are the basis for many commercial pesticides, including Vapam and Vorlex. Our mustards will not totally eliminate insects, as do some chemical treatments.

3. Increases organic matter
Mighty Mustard™ is a fast-growing cover crop, with plant heights reaching up to 6 feet. Once you incorporate the above-ground plant material, or biomass, into your soil, the new organic matter will break down, supporting beneficial fungus and bacteria.

4. Recycles & redistributes nitrogen in the soil profile
Mighty Mustard taproots can grow 2 to 6 feet, depending on the growing conditions. These taproots pull nitrogen from deep in the soil profile, and push it up into the plant's leaves. When you incorporate chopped Mighty Mustard into the soil, you then redistribute the nitrogen to the top two feet of soil, making it readily accessible to the roots of your fruits, vegetables and other crops.

5. Reduces wind & water erosion
During its growth cycle, the mustard’s root structure breaks the hardpan in soil, creating new pathways for water and the root expansion of future crops. Mighty Mustard’s™ taproots, which can range from 2 to 6 feet in length, improve tilth and water infiltration, thereby reducing wind and water erosion.

6. Improves the long-term health of soil
When you grow Mighty Mustard,™ you add organic matter to your soil, as well as improve tilth, reduce wind & water erosion, and eliminate or reduce the use of toxic chemicals.

7. Sequesters carbon
Like all plants, Mighty Mustard™ pulls carbon dioxide from the air into the soil. But our mustards go a bit farther. They help reduce or eliminate the need for petroleum-based chemical soil amendments.

8. Verified Non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project
Mighty Mustard™ has undergone third-party evaluation and is verified non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project.

9. Non-toxic and safe to use around children & pets
Mighty Mustard™ is non-toxic, untreated planting seed. (However, due to its extreme spiciness, children and pets SHOULD NOT eat the mustard seeds or plants, or rub their eyes after touching the mustard seeds or plants.)

10. Safe for organic and sustainable farms & gardens
Mighty Mustard™ is not certified organic, but many certified organic growers petition to grow it.

11. Backed by over 20 years of university research
Mighty Mustard™ IdaGold and Pacific Gold were developed by Dr. Jack Brown, Professor of Breeding and Genetics at the University of Idaho. The research team at the University of Idaho’s Soil Biochemistry & Environmental Organic Chemistry, led by Dr. Matthew Morra, has conducted biofumigation research with rapeseed and mustard plants since 1988.

12. Grown sustainably by a family of farmers in the Pacific Northwest
Mighty Mustard™ is grown by a family of farmers, Pacific Northwest Farmers Cooperative, based in Genesee, Idaho.

13. Plant-variety-protected, certified planting seed
All Mighty Mustard™ Pacific Gold and IdaGold planting seed is certified and PVP, so you know exactly what you’re buying: all-natural, high-glucosinolate, non-GMO, 99% pure planting seed.

14. All-natural alternative to toxic chemicals
The only ingredient in Mighty Mustard™ is mustard. No man-made toxins that will harm you, your children or pets.

15. Suitable for no-till farming
If you’re interested in no-till or reduced till agriculture, Mighty Mustard™ cover crops can still benefit your soil, although it will slow the availability of recycled nitrogen.
