Buckwheat Seed - Buckwheat produces an abundance of flowers and seed in 70-80 days which holds onto the stalk well after ripening. On average, the plant height is 2 to 4 feet and is appealing to wildlife. Buckwheat is also popular for honey bees and produces an abundance of flowers very quickly.  Buckwheat grows well in most any type of soil; poor, fertile, peat, sand, clay or loam.  Buckwheat is not very shade tolerant and can germinate and grow at temperatures as low as 45 degrees F, but optimal growth occurs at or above 55 degrees F.  It is very frost sensitive and does not survive even light frosts.  Buckwheat has a low water requirement and does not do well in wet soils.  Buckwheat is a great addition to spring and summer food plots for quail, doves, turkey, ducks & deer.  Buckwheat also serves as a great cover crop for gardens.

Buckwheat's rapid growth makes it an excellent choice for smothering weeds during the warm season.  Buckwheat flowers are attractive to bees and beneficial predatory insects and flower bugs.

Mancan Variety Buckwheat is most commonly grown in the South East.  Mancan is known for vigorous growth habit as well as larger seeds, stems and leaves.  Buckwheat seeds are large, dark-colored with trianglular shaped sides.
