Amigo brown condiment mustard is from the breeding program of Dr. Gerhard Rakow (AAFC). Amigo is characterized by lower fixed oil content and greater seed protein. Resistance to white rust race 2a from AC Vulcan was bred into Amigo.
Centennial Brown brown condiment mustard is well adapted to the mustard growing regions of the Canadian prairies. Compared to the check, Common Brown, yield was increase by 3% and height increase by 5 cm. Glucosinolate is higher, as is protein content, compared to Common Brown. Fixed oil was reduced as were green seed counts. This variety is resistant to blackleg and highly susceptible to white rust. Centennial Brown, registered in 2005, is used as the check variety for comparisons with prospective new varieties.
Duchess became the check variety after 2005. Research is ongoing; description to follow.
