Buckwheat overwhelms weeds well, catches phosphorus, grows very quickly, and
can be complete in a month or so. It also disks or mows down easily.
Although it can reseed itself it never seems to quite "become" a weed in its
own right. It's a "lush" plant, lots of water, and easy to remove. Also,
it's very cheap, 50 lb bags as low as maybe $10 to $25 and can be broadcast,
so it's easier to sow.
