Agri-Tech Catalog: rake

Here is a simple yet fundamental agri-tool, the rake. One of the very first¬†agricultural¬†tools ever employed in order to “harrow” (or lightly cultivate the surface of the soil). This enabled some of the first farmers to plant seeds in areas that were not originally¬†conducive to supporting plant life.
