Rose Red Soba (Buckwheat)
This is an excellent winter cover crop, especially for those who do not want to put the garden to bed early in order to sow a cover crop. Winter rye is the fastest growing fall cover crop as far as cereal grains go. You may sow heavily in late fall, plants will grow in very cold temperatures and the extensive and deep root system will help to avoid erosion over the winter. The roots will also improve soil tilth and improve compacted soil. Winter rye will also grow in drought conditions as well as in areas with low fertility.
