Buckwheat Seed (lb)

Buckwheat Seed (lb)

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.

Great cover crop for hot climates

This is a great cover crop for South Texas. Helps me keep beds covered during the heat of summer when not much else can grow. Bees love the flowers and easy to terminate. Definitely noticed improvement in my beds after ward. Love that I can buy in bulk for a reasonable price. Makes it easy and budget friendly to do cover cropping on our small homestead.

Buckwheat

I was THRILLED to find buckwheat somewhere in Albany. I used to buy it at Nichols Nursery every year but they’ve moved to Philomath. I like the rapid growth of buckwheat and no fuss care of the plants. I used to grow it when I raised honeybees. It not only gave them food but fed my garden. Very easy crop to grow and I like the way it will reseed itself, I use it every year.

Excited to Grow

Grow Organic has so many affordable prices on cover crops, when I saw that they had buckwheat available I definitely added it to my cart, and bought. I will be using this LW for chicken feed and every other place I saw didn't have such great prices

Awesome growth

I purchased a bulk order of this as a cover crop for some areas of my yard that I'm reworking. These guys popped up instantly and have been growing FAST. Excellent germination, excellent growth. I will absolutely be using buckwheat again.
