Is there a safe herbicide to use in a food plot sowed with buckwheat? The weeds appear to be a grass of some sort possibly Timothy or orchard grass.
Nope. All are grasses. Nothing I'm aware of will kill one type and not another.
Buckwheat is not a grass or related to wheat. You might try clethodim which is grass specific. I grow buckwheat every year but have not had to spray for grass. I would do a small test area first before spraying the whole plot to see how it does first
I ran out time and did a horrible job seeding this plot and rushed it instead of doing it right the first time

A good stand of buckwheat will almost smother weeds out.
Box call, I am sure you are right. This was my first buckwheat plot and I’m not sure what to expect. I guess there is no harm killing the grass st this point.
