Draws Out Insoluble Phosphorus from the Soil

Fagopyrum esculentum Warm season cover crop.

  • Application Rate: 3 lb/1000 sq ft or 60-80 lb/acre
  • Inoculant: NA
  • Germination: 5 -7 Days
  • Plant Height: 8" - 3'
  • Days to Maturity: 30-45
  • Uses: Attracts beneficial insects, accumulates insoluble phosphorus and, when turned under, releases it to the soil in plant-available form. Planted early, it is an excellent trap crop for thrips during bloom of fruits and vines.
  • Facts to Note: Non-legume broadleaf does not fix Nitrogen but is one of the best hot weather cover crops because of its ability to produce organic matter and smother summer weeds (Canada Thistle, Quackgrass, Nutgrass, etc) quickly. Quick to maturity so 2 to 4 plantings can be sown in one summer. Absolutely requires warm growing conditions.
