Richard,
Two more quick thoughts:
--Our honey is much more profitable than daikon radishes, at least in
direct market sales.  Esp. the small gift sizes of honey, headed into the
holidays.
(The whole farm contributions of well-fed fall beehives vs. daikons as a
fall cover crop, are other matters.)

--How much buckwheat acreage can the number of hives you have realistically
use?  Hence tilling under some of the buckwheat may not result in much
honey loss, if any.
