ROCKET LETTUCE

Eruca sativa

Biofumigant

This crop flowers rather late with an average early vigour.

Rocket lettuce is like oil radish; a dual purpose in regards to diseases and pest control.

This crop is suitable as a biological controller of cyst nematodes H. schachtii and betae, and fights root knot nematodes M. chitwoodi and incognita.

This, combined with high levels of glucosinolate, makes Rocket a good biofumigant.
