ORIGINATING in northeast Asia, southern Siberia, and northern China, common buckwheat (Polygonaceae family) is one of 18 recognized natural species of Fagopyrum
and is the most important from economical, agricultural, and nutritional points of view.
Though prepared like a grain, this little brown triangular kernel is actually the fruit of a broadleaved plant, Fagopyrum
esculentum Moench, and a relative of rhubarb.

esculentum Moench (Polygonaceae), a common cover crop, has been reported as an excellent source of nectar and habitat for natural enemies, with the added benefit of a short sowing-to-flower time (Bowie et al.

The study was conducted in a screened greenhouse of the Department of Soils and Rural Engineering (DSRE) of the Center of Agricultural Sciences (CCA) of the Federal University of Paraiba (UFPB), in Areia-PB, Brazil, using plants of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.), castor bean (Ricinus communis L.), common buckwheat (Fagopyrum
esculentum Moench) and vetiver [Chrysopogon zizanioides (L.) Roberty] cultivated in nutrient solution containing increasing doses of Pb.

Flavonoids are widely distributed in the plant kingdom and a search for their anti-parasitic activity have yielded compounds like Luteolin isolated from Vitex negundo and Quercetin derived from Fagopyrum
