Buckwheat is a fast-growing summer annual broadleaf. It can be used as quick growing green manure and for weed competition. Plant buckwheat at a high seeding rate when trying to choke out weeds. Buckwheat grows rapidly and can flower within one month of seeding. It also breaks down quickly after incorporation. Buckwheat (in a monoculture stand or as a component in a mix) is also sometimes used to attract beneficial insects.
