Fagopyrum esculentum Warm season cover crop
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. Also accumulates insoluble phosphorus and, when turned under, releases it to the soil in plant-available form.
