Anyone ever try buckwheat in a food plot? I planted a good size strip of clover, timothy and red top for some quail but thought I might try some buckwheat also.

I always plant some buckwheat every year. Most of it is for the quail, but the deer do use it as well. It’s cheap, and easy to grow. Plus as an added benefit its great for honeybees

I have planted it for duck food - they love it.  Check out Kevin’s recent food plot blog.

Buckwheat is a good especially when planted in late spring for a summer food plot. In the fall mow it down and slightly disc it under, it acts like a green manure and puts nutrients back in the soil, then plant your fall plots .
