First ploughing of the year

Well, the first ploughing of the year is done. This year I’ve started with a very clever "active" plough that digs a furrow directly under the vines. A sensor detects each vine and retracts the plough just before it does damage. I’m pleased with the results, although it was pretty slow work – driving at 1.2kph. However, sitting on the tractor sure beats weeding with a hoe!
