Green manure- caliente mustard good for carrot root fly?
I want to sow caliente mustard as a green manure. It is a biofumigant, if you can dig it in VERY fast after crushing it.
The reason is that I'm plagued with carrot root fly, and I've come to the conclusion that as they overwinter in the soil it certainly wouldn't hurt to try; and green manure is said to be almost as good as the real thing.
I really want to know how long it takes to grow to the stage you can dig it in?
And does anyone have any comments about the use to get rid of the carrot root fly? I know it works for some nasties.
Hope you can help.
