Mustard prefers well-drained loamy soils with sufficient moisture and is intolerant of drought and waterlogging. Although tolerant of low fertility soil, soils that are prone to crusting can cause problems. While mustard is tolerant of mild frosts, severe frosts can destroy the crop. Moisture stress during the flowering period will reduce yields.
Soil pH: 5.5 – 8.3
