Agronomic characteristics

A species that must absolutely be planted at the beginning of summer to have good vegetative development, buckwheat is sometimes cultivated to produce a second harvest (to be sown in this case behind barley or a winter pea). It can bolt quite easily and become a weed in the next crop (it is a knotweed). On the other hand, its very early flowering can be an asset for feeding pollinating insects.
