Buckwheat seed is a fast growing green manure for the summer months (not winter hardy). It is great for suppressing weeds. When ploughed in it improves soil condition. If allowed to flower, it produces pink flowers that attract bees and beneficial insects, though at the same time the plants become woodier. Further to this, the seeds are readily dropped and the germination rate is high, which has to be borne in mind if you don’t want successive crops. Not only does the bushy canopy out compete weeds and smother them, it is also thought buckwheat releases chemicals into the soil that prevents the germination of other seeds, particularly broad leaved plants. Recommend 20kg per acre and sow between April _ August
