Buckwheat, with its impressively rapid germination in just three to five days and leaf growth of up to three inches in a mere two weeks, is the ultimate cover crop to suppress warm-season annual weeds. Its vigorous growth creates a dense canopy, effectively crowding out weeds and cutting off their sunlight under its leafy expanse. Buckwheat's blooms act as a magnet for beneficial insects and pollinators, further enhancing its ecological benefits. Remarkably, within a short span of six weeks, Buckwheat is ready to be incorporated into the soil. Its residue decomposes rapidly, enriching the earth with valuable nutrients that benefit the subsequent crop.
