Organic Buckwheat Seed (lb)

Fast Growing Summer Cover Crop

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.

  • Application Rate: 3 lb/1000 sq ft or 60-80 lb/acre
  • Inoculant: None needed
  • Germination: 5-10 Days
  • Plant Height: 8" - 3'
  • Days to Maturity: 30-45
  • Uses: Planted early, it is an excellent trap crop for thrips during bloom of fruits and vines. Also attracts beneficial insects. Weed competition, accumulates phosphorus for later release.
  • Facts to Note: Grows on almost any soil with little assistance, but absolutely requires warmth. Quick to mature, so 2 to 4 plantings can be sown in one summer. Mature height varies with soil quality.
