Buckwheat (kuttu) is beneficial for health and is rich in nutritional content such as iron, zinc, selenium, amino acids etc. Buckwheat (kuttu) is widely used in baking products and other food products.
Buckwheat, a short-season crop, does well on low-fertility or acidic soils, but the soil must be well drained. Too much fertilizer, especially nitrogen, reduces yields. In hot climates it can only be grown by sowing late in the season, so that it blooms in cooler weather. The presence of pollinatorsgreatly increases the yield. The nectar from buckwheat flower makes a dark-colored honey.
