Nematode resistant White mustard


Nematode control on a new level


  • Tested in France and listed to resistance class H1 (highest reduction)
  • Very low tendency to flower allows early sowing without the risk of maturity
  • Fast initial development ensures good weed suppression and makes VERDI particularly compatible to late-sowing
  • The long vegetative growth contributes significantly to the sustainable control of Beet Cyst Nematodes
  • Because of safe freezing off particularly suitable for mulch sowing methods of the following crop
  • Both the green standing crop as well as the frozen mulch cover after winter protect the soil from wind and water erosion
  • Excellent for agricultural blends
