Variety information



Undemanding, with suitability for biofumigation
Name addition
Brown mustard
  • Low requirements on soil and climate make TERRAFIT a undemanding cover crop
  • Fast initial development for good erosion protection and weed suppression
  • Stabilizes the humus content by providing valuable organic matter
  • Freely available nutrients are bound and protected against shifting into rootless layers
  • Due to the particularly high amounts of glucosinolates in the leaves and grains, TERRAFIT is very well suited for combating soil-borne diseases by biofumigation technology
