Buckwheat is a popular all-around warm season annual that has many uses as a food plot crop with an abundance of seeds that appeal to a large number of the wildlife. Buckwheat grows well in almost any soil and is usually planted alone, produces clusters of small white flowers forming triangular shaped black seeds that shatter easily giving access for stalk feeding for smaller birds. Provides good ground cover and the stalks will remain after the seed shatters out thus providing additional cover for smaller wildlife. A great cover crop for enhancing soil, excellent summer food plot forage that is extremely early maturing with seed yields as fast as 7-10 weeks after emergence.

Each 50 sack of buckwheat contains clean & 99.9% whole buckwheat seeds (not crushed). The price per 50 lbs is very reasonable. It is a little far from where we are located, but we do not mind driving to their facility as their staff is always friendly, helpful and efficient.
