Buckwheat to Soybeans Experiment

Postby allthingswhitetail » Sat Jul 27, 2013 8:37 pm

I'm trying an experiment growing a plot in an area that was reclaimed by the DNR several years ago. The soil is mainly gravel beneath the thin top soil. The buckwheat was planted in May. Today we planted the soybeans. Check out the blog to see photos of the tall growth of buckwheat and the video.

Please comment on the height of the buckwheat. I have never seen it grow this tall and was rather surprised given the soil conditions.

Feedback from others indicates buckwheat growing up to 6' is not that unusual. Apparently the plant stems for buckwheat have difficulty standing up at that height. Given the results I had, I would definitely agree with that. I had plants laying on the ground and still growing. Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Andy
