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. Planted early, it is an excellent trap crop for thrips during bloom of fruits and vines. Also attracts beneficial insects. Grows to maturity in 30-45 days, so 2 to 4 plantings can be sown in one summer. Mature height varies with soil quality, from 8 to 3'. Grows on almost any soil with little assistance, but absolutely requires warmth. Seed at 3 lb/1000 sq ft or 60-80 lb/acre. (No inoculant needed)
