Farmers' Bulletin: Issue 1062

"Buckwheat is grown principally in the northeastern part of the United States, more than 60 percent of the crop being produced in New York and Pennsylvania -- Buckwheat is in general the best grain crop for poor, thin land and succeeds well on acid soils. It is a good crop on new land and on old sod land being again brought under the plow. It does best where the climate is cool and moist, so it is best adapted to the Northern States or to mountainous regions. Buckwheat can make use of insoluble phosphorous and potassium to better advantage than other grain crops. As a crop buckwheat is valuable as a weed destroyer, as a soil renovator, as a summer cover and green-manure crop, and as a source of honey for bees. The grain is the source of food and feed, and the straw has feed and fertilizing value." -- p. 2
