Caliente Brand Bio-fumigants
Improve & sustain the health and productivity of your agricultural soils with the use of Green Manure/Bio-fumigant cover crops from High Performance Seeds. Bio-fumigants are the process of mechanically combining the glucosinolate (GL), sinigrin, with the enzyme, myrosinase. When these two compounds meet in the presence of water, Alleyl-Isothiocyanate (AITC) is produced. The higher the concentration of AITC, the greater potential to suppress disease, weeds, nematodes, and other pests.
Caliente Rojo Mustard Recently released, this blend has 20-30% higher glucosinolate concentrations than the Caliente 199 Mustard Blend. The Caliente Rojo Mustard Blend is used in high value crops where nematodes, wireworms, & hard to control pathogens are a problem.
Nemat Arugula Nematodes, wireworms, and other pests are attracted to high levels of exuded sugars from growing roots. Some species’ females burrow into roots and lay eggs. The females shortly die and if no host presents itself in 10 days the eggs die as well. Also stimulates cyst nematodes to hatch, allowing AITC or chemical nematicide a chance to suppress and/or kill the pest.
Caliente 199 Mustard Blend Released shortly after Caliente 119, this blend has considerably higher glucosinolate concentrations. Used in both conventional & organic IPM programs to suppress various pathogens, pests, & weeds. Has been the research standard for the past 15+ years.
Nemat/Caliente Rojo Blend Recently released, this blend had become the most effective Biofumigtion Blend available. Combines the attracting & trapping qualities of the Nemat and the disease, pest, & weed suppression qualities of the Caliente Rojo. This blend has become an integral part of both conventional & organic IPM programs around the world. Has proven to be an effective way of reducing and/or eliminating the use of chemical fumigants.

Biofumigation is the process of mechanically combining the volatile glucosinolate (GL), with the enzyme, myrosinase. When these two compounds meet in the presence of water, ITC is produced. The higher the concentration of ITC, the greater potential to suppress disease, weeds, nematodes, and other pests. Not all glucosinlates are volatile or biocidal
