Native forb seed production is needed for rangeland restoration and reclamation projects within the Great Basin. Sulphur-flower buckwheat Eriogonum umbellatum Torr. [ERUM], (Fig.1) is a widespread species with many subspecies in the western United States and Canada. Production of sulphur-flower buckwheat seed adds to the array of native forbs available for planting disturbed areas on western wild lands. It is also an attractive plant for low maintenance landscaping or xeriscaping. This brochure summarizes data relating to sulphur-flower buckwheat seed production that will provide interested growers with production techniques that reduce crop failure and increase seed yields.

Keywords: Sulphur-flower buckwheat, Eriogonum umbellatum Torr. [ERUM]
