Annual, 8" to 3’ tall, non-legume warm weather cover crop. Has an allelopathic action that suppresses weeds and its flowers attract beneficial insects and bees. Accumulates insoluble phosphorus for release to plants later. Planted early, it is an excellent trap crop for thrips during bloom of fruits and vines. 30-45 days to maturity. This tender foliage will die from light frost. Fagopyrum esculentum

Due to our bagging the seed into smaller sizes, it is no longer considered Certified Organic.

Plant at 2.3 lb per 1,000 sq ft or 50 - 100 lb per acre.

Test Plot

The seed came a few days earlier than indicated and package was in good condition. I live in northern AL so gardening can start early. I planted a couple of small test plots Feb 13th to see if I could push the calendar. Then we had a really cold couple of days. We'll see how it turns out. Always have plenty left over to replant.
