Yellow Mustard Production


Compliments of MINN-DAK Growers Ltd.

CROP DEVELOPMENT: Emerges 7 to 10 days after planting. Well adapted to North Dakota. Flowering occurs 30 to 40 days after planting, and can occur for several weeks depending upon temperatures. From 2 to 6 seeds can be found in a given pod. Matures in 90 to 95 days. Typical plant height is 30" to 40".

SOILS: Adapts well to many soils. Fertile, well drained soils are usually best.

PLANTING RATE: 10 to 14 lbs/acre.

PLANTING DATE: mid-April to early May. Seedlings are frost tolerant.

SEEDING DEPTH: 0.5 to 1.5 inches

FERTILITY REQUIREMENTS: 65 lbs. of N per 1000 lbs. of yield. Similar to small grains in phosphorous use. Use of 10 to 15 lbs/acre of sulfur is highly suggested.

WEED CONTROL: Treflan is labeled for weed control.

CHEMICAL CARRYOVER: Sensitive to carryover of sulfonylureas (e. g. Glean, Ally), also sensitive to atrazine and picloram (Tordon).

ROTATION: Usually between small grains.

WATER USE: Fairly drought tolerant. Rooting depth similar to small grains.

INSECTS: Flea beetles (not near as serious as in canola - usually not treated), cutworms.

DISEASES: Sclerotinia (white mold), downy mildew, alternaria. Most are of minor importance if sound rotation practices are followed.

HARVEST: Straight combining is preferred. Harvest when crop is 100% ripe. Green seeds do not change color, and result in grade discounts. Harvest during cooler parts of the day to reduce shatter loss. Storage moisture is 9%.

MARKETS: Table (hot dog) mustard, used also as a binding agent in processed meats.

TYPICAL YIELDS: 1000 to 1500 lbs/acre.
