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.

Provides good ground cover and the stalks will remain after the seed shatters out thus providing additional cover for smaller wildlife.

Forage soybeans are selected for their late season, leafy characteristics. In northern and transitional regions of the United States, Forage soybeans will retain their leaves while other varieties used for grain production will drop their forage and expose the pods. They will provide a lush forage well into the fall or bow hunting season. For Southern regions, we recommend waiting to plant until July or August to maintain this late leafy characteristic.
