The Zugmayr plough – The first furrow-turning plough makes agricultural work easier
Pictures from ancient and medieval times make it clear that the plough was an important tool in working the soil for agricultural purposes. Wooden ploughs could be hauled by oxen or horses. The plough developed by Severin Zugmayr in 1818 made it possible to improve the working of arable land. It was equipped with iron ploughshares which turned the furrows.
