Buckwheat, a handy crop

September 26, 2019

Buckwheat is a relatively low-input crop that has high yields even in marginal soil. It also adds nutrients to the soil, making it a good cover or rotational crop. Buckwheat also grows quickly, with a 30-day maturity rate that allows it to kill off most competing weeds. Its fast growth also makes it a good candidate for a catch crop when others have failed.
