2016 C. Raker & Sons Field Trials Results

The field trials at C. Raker & Sons had drought-like conditions from May through most of August. When it did rain, it put down 2 to 5 inches in a very short period. This happened a few times over the summer. The lack of rain stalled many of the trial plants. Despite Raker’s use of inline watering, the plants still suffered.
