9001-LO

Not just a cover crop, buckwheat loosens clay soils and suppresses weeds. Buckwheat’s lovely white flowers are attractive to bees and other pollinators, making it a great addition to gardens of any size. An anti-inflammatory infusion can be made from the flowering tops, it’s said to help against arteriosclerosis.

Koto is an open-pollinated variety that was developed in Canada and selected for early flowering and days to maturity. Seeds are shorter and more dense than other varieties.

Buckwheat is not frost-hardy, so plant in spring for tilling-under or sow three months before fall frost for grain harvest.

Seeding rate is 2-3 lb per 1000 square feet or 35-135 lb per acre.

Grown by Girouard Farm in Sainte Marie de Kent, NB.
