  1. lister plough

    A lister plough, also known as a middle buster or mouldboard plough, is a type of agricultural equipment used for deep plowing. It typically has two mouldboards or blades that are designed to cut furrows in the soil and lift it to the center, creating a V-shaped tunnel. This is useful for breaking up hard soil, crop residue, and for the creation of ridges and beds. Named after its designer Jethro Tiller Lister, the lister plough is especially useful in dryland farming areas where it helps in water retention and is commonly used in planting crops like cotton and potatoes.
