Buckwheat Harvest

As this was our first year of producing buckwheat, we had certain questions throughout the growing season. With a little research and some help from other producers and industry experts we were able to harvest a nice crop of buckwheat. We ended up with a little over 25 bushels per acre and we used the old Allis Chalmers CII combine to get the buckwheat off the field and into the bin. Even with a relatively small 14 foot swath, I had to travel slowly to be able to get it through the combine without plugging it up. All's well that ends well.
