Buckwheats vigorous growth habits make it an exceptional choice for a quick establishing crop with superior weed suppression. This is your crop if you desire a crop that flowers quickly and for extended periods of time. Flowering can occur in the first three weeks of growth and continue on for ten weeks. These flowers attract a large array of beneficial and pollinator insects. If soil moisture usage is a concern then buckwheat is a good choice. Buckwheat uses about half as much water as a soybean crop.
