2016 Iowa State University Field Trials Results

Reiman Gardens’ field trials consisted of approximately 250 entries and comparisons this season. A new addition to the space was a three-winter perennial trial through All-America Selections. The growing season started with very little rainfall and higher than average temperatures in May and June, an average July, and then a very wet August. Basil downy mildew, which hadn’t been seen since 2014, infected many of the basil plants in late August.
