Quick-growing, broadleaved summer annual ready to incorporate in 35 to 45 days.

Potential for multiple plantings per year. Grain crop reaches maturity in 70 to 90 days. Very competitive with tough-to-control perennial and annual weeds like giant ragweed and Canada thistle. Easy to control and residue breaks down rapidly making this an ideal choice for small-scale producers. Excellent scavenger of P and other nutrients. Attracts beneficial insects and pollinators with its abundant flowers.

  • Excellent full-summer cover crop & pollinator-forage crop
  • Thrives on nutrient poor and varying soil types, but not on compacted, droughty, or wet soils
  • Buckwheat seed for sale is sensitive to frost, drought, excessive heat, and any carryover herbicides
  • Terminate crop at first sign of flowering to avoid volunteer weeds
