Variety information



The great classic among the white mustard varieties
Name addition
White mustard
  • Highly appreciated variety with quick and strong initial development even at late sowing dates
  • Valuable green crop above-ground and intensive, deep rooting systems form a stable soil structure with a good humus balance
  • ALBATROS freezes off in winter - good erosion protection by plant residues, also if already broken
  • Nutrients are conserved in organic mass and protected against elution during winter, so they are available again in spring
  • Recommended in water protection areas
  • Practically proven for untroubled mulch sowing - especially in maize crop rotations
  • ALBATROS is a ideal partner for agricultural blends
Included in blends: viterra® SCHNELLGRÜN, viterra® SCHNELLGRÜN LEGUMINOSENFREI
