The word around local farmers is to grow white mustard in the soil you plan to grow garlic next year. Presumably, it reduce the amount of white rot (Sclerotium cepivorum).

Does it make sense to intercrop garlic with white mustard? I am thinking of planting 3 rows of garlic, 1 row of white mustards. What is the ideal ratio? I'd love to hear some of your experience.

Similarly, a legend says intercropping garlic with carrots repels onion/garlic fly. I am thinking of the same regime as with white mustard. 3 rows of garlic, 1 row of carrot. What is your experience with intercropping garlic with carrots or in general with intercropping?
