Ploughing a field prepares the soil for new crops in the upcoming seasons. Although past techniques for ploughing included using animals to pull the plough, today's ploughs are pulled by a tractor. This advancement makes it possible to plough a field more quickly. Ploughing a field turns the soil and succeeds in removing any weeds that would steal nutrients from the crops. Knowing how to plough a field with a tractor will help you prepare the soil to grow healthy crops.
