dc.description Buckwheat is highly sensitive to spring and fall frosts and high temperatures during anthesis. Higher temperatures causes the plant to lose it's flowers. Planting buckwheat 10-12 weeks before the fall frost would help insure plant maturity and would center it's greatest growth period during this time and not during peak blossoming time. Larger varieties set the majority of their seed during the later part of growing season whereas the smaller varieties have maximum seed set in mid-growth period. Different regions of North Dakota would affect planting dates causing some to be earlier. A planting rate of 700,000 seeds per acre should result in satisfactory yields during most years. Later planting dates resulted in reduced test weights.
