Uses of Golden Crop Animal Drawn Plough

The Animal Draw Plough are also known as ox plough, cow plough or bull plough and buffalo plough, has been used for various purposes in traditional agricultural practices. Here are some common uses:

Soil Preparation

The primary use of an Animal Drawn Plough is to prepare the soil for planting crops. It cuts through the soil, loosening it and turning it over, which helps to break up compacted soil, remove weeds, and incorporate organic matter.

Seedbed Preparation

The animal drawn plough helps to create a suitable seedbed by providing a well-tilled and levelled surface for sowing seeds. It prepares the soil by creating furrows or ridges where seeds can be placed, optimizing seed-to-soil contact

Weed Control

Ploughing with an plough can help to control weeds by burying their seeds and uprooting existing weeds. By turning over the soil, the plough disrupts the growth cycle of weeds, reducing their competition with cultivated crops.

Water Management

In certain regions with a monsoon climate or areas prone to heavy rainfall, the animal drawn plough is used to create furrows or channels that facilitate water drainage. It helps to prevent waterlogging and thus improves soil drainage, which is crucial for crop growth.

Soil Conservation

The use of an animal drawn plough can contribute to soil conservation efforts. By ploughing in a specific direction and contouring the land, farmers can minimize soil erosion caused by water runoff and promote the conservation of fertile topsoil.

How to Setup an Animal Drawn Plough?

Setting up an animal drawn plough typically involves several steps. Here’s a general guide on how to set up an animal drawn plough:

Assemble the Plough

If the plough is not already assembled, follow the manufacturer’s instructions or arrange the components to form the complete plough structure. This may involve attaching the blade, handles, and other necessary parts.

Check the Plough Components

Ensure that all parts of the plough are in good condition and securely attached. Check for any damage, loose bolts, or worn-out components that may affect its performance.

Prepare the Animals

If using oxen, cows, bulls, buffalos, or any other draft animals, make sure they are harnessed properly and comfortably. Check the harnesses for wear and ensure they fit the animals correctly. Adjust the harness to balance the load and distribute the pulling force evenly.

Connect the Plough to the Animals

Attach the plough to the harness of the draft animals. This is typically done by connecting the plough’s hitch or hook to the appropriate point on the animal’s harness. Ensure the connection is secure and allows for smooth movement.

Adjust the Plough Depth

Set the desired ploughing depth by adjusting the position of the blade. This can usually be done by changing the angle or depth-setting mechanism of the plough. The depth depends on factors such as soil type, crop requirements, and the desired outcome of ploughing.

Test and Adjust

Before starting the actual ploughing, take a short test run to ensure everything is properly set up. Observe how the plough interacts with the soil and make any necessary adjustments to the blade’s angle or depth.

Begin Ploughing

Once you are satisfied with the setup and adjustments, start ploughing by guiding the animals in a straight line across the field. Maintain a consistent pace and ensure the plough remains at the desired depth throughout the process.

Remember, the specific setup steps may vary depending on the type and design of the plough you are using. It’s always a good idea to consult the manufacturer’s instructions or seek guidance from experienced farmers familiar with animal-drawn ploughing in your region.
