Buckwheat Increases Bee Populations and Produces Excellent Honey Yields
A fast growing summer annual. Used to attract beneficial insects, it has been known to support large hives and produce exceptional honey yields. Useful as a green manure smother crop, it germinates quickly, shading and cooling the soil. The biomass breaks down rapidly, making nutrients and minerals readily available to the subsequent crop. Its quick decay also improves the condition and moisture-holding capacity of the soil.
