Buckwheat provides quick soil cover and weed suppression for short-season cover. Abundant blooms attract beneficial insects and pollinators. Buckwheat thrives in nutrient-poor soils. A dense, fibrous root system loosens topsoil and prevents erosion. Buckwheat is easy to kill, making it an ideal cover crop and green manure for home gardens. (Fagopyrum esculentem)
