Contract requirements and other varietal factors can influence variety selection. For yellow mustard, there is variation in the amount of mucilage for the three different varieties which may be a factor for variety selection. AAC Adagio has the highest mucilage levels when compared to AC Pennant, Andante and AAC Yellow 80. More information about registered varieties can be found in the SaskSeed Guide.
