  • Faster initial growth and root development than radish
  • Excellent standability
  • Best use for later planting, where water is limited or where soil conditions are poor
  • Captures and recycles nutrients
  • Improves soil organic matter and aeration

Sugarbeet cyst nematodes (SBCN) are a recognized problem in sugarbeet production. SBCN populations increase when sugarbeets or other host plants are actively growing. MASTER white mustard effectively reduces sugarbeet cyst nematode populations up to 80% when used as a cover crop. Often referred to as a nematode trap crop, MASTER white mustard stimulates SBCN cysts containing hundreds of eggs to develop but prevents the nematodes from completing their life cycle. The result is a dramatic decrease in the nematode population because the reproductive cycle is effectively stopped. MASTER white mustard develops more quickly with deeper and faster root development than radish. This fast initial growth is important when planting is delayed or water may be limited.

MASTER white mustard contains high glucosinolate levels which is important if MASTER is incorporated into the soil to take advantage of its bio-fumigant properties. During the breakdown of the green material a gas is released that acts as a fumigant which kills free living nematodes and can also kill fungal pathogens.

Additionally, MASTER white mustard has all the benefits of a conventional cover crop brassica: nutrients are captured and recycled as the plant decomposes; natural soil aeration occurs as the mustard root develops; and soil organic matter is increased when the green material is incorporated into the soil.

MASTER white mustard is the best choice for for SBCN control when planting is delayed or planting conditions are less than ideal.

Shipping Policy

At Standish Milling, we're committed to delivering your products in a timely and cost-effective manner. Here's some information to help you understand our shipping costs.

UPS Ground Shipping

We primarily use UPS Ground for our shipping. The cost of shipping is calculated based on the weight of your order and your location. UPS Ground offers reliable, cost-effective delivery for packages under 150 lbs.

You can estimate your shipping costs by adding items to your cart and entering your shipping address. Our system will automatically calculate the shipping costs before you proceed to checkout.

LTL (Less Than Truckload) Shipping

For larger orders over 150 lbs, we use Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipping. LTL shipping is a cost-effective way to ship large orders by combining shipments from multiple customers.

Here's how it works:

  1. You get a quote: When you add items to your cart that total more than 150 lbs, our system will provide an LTL shipping quote. This quote is based on the total weight of your order and your shipping address.

  2. Your order is shipped: Once your order is ready, we send it to the shipping carrier who combines it with other shipments going in the same direction. This process allows us to save on shipping costs and pass those savings onto you.

  3. Your order is delivered: The carrier will deliver your order to your specified address. Keep in mind that delivery times for LTL shipments may be longer than UPS Ground shipments due to the consolidation process.
