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 and Andante. More information about registered varieties can be found in the SaskSeed Guide.
