Cover Crop - Buckwheat (5 LB)
Cover Crop - Buckwheat (5 LB)
A fast growing short-season cover crop. It establishes, blooms, and is ready for incorporation in 30 to 40 days. Buckwheat suppresses weeds and attracts beneficial insects and pollinators with its abundant blossoms. It is easy to kill and extracts soil phosphorus from soil better than most grain cover crops then releases these nutrients to later crops.  Buckwheat residue also decomposes quickly, releasing nutrients to the next crop.  Buckwheat thrives in cool, moist conditions but it is not frost tolerant. In the South it is best sown in May through August for cover crop use. Buckwheat is not particularly drought tolerant, and readily wilts under hot, dry conditions. Plant buckwheat after all danger of frost. In untilled, minimally-tilled or clean-tilled soils, sow 2-3 pounds/1000square feet at 0.5 to 1.5 inches deep. If broadcasting, spread as uniformly as you can onto a firm seedbed and incorporate with an implement that presses the seed and soil together lightly.  5 lB. $10
