I planted a mighty mustard cover crop about two weeks after the season ended. The growth pattern has been interesting to watch. The mustard is actually showing me where the hotspots are in the patch. You can see in the right hand side of the photo where the mustard is short and there are yellow leaves. . Now there might be other reasons such as water differential, light differential or fertilizer differences, but I believe the growth pattern is due to diseases. Because I have a small patch it is not too difficult or expensive to excavate the hotspots and backfill them with new soil. I can also treat these areas with hydrogen peroxide solution to kill the disease or at least knock it back.
