"Reaper." Wikipedia. Wikimedia Foundation, 28 Sept. 2012. Web. 30 Sept. 2012. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reaper>. Purpose In colonial America the plow was used to turn over the top layer of soil so that nutrients would come to the surface to help the plants grow. It also helped to bury weeds and the remains of previous crops. Description There were many different types of plows that were used by the settlers, but the most common was made of wood, a long piece of wrought iron, and it also had a sharp point at the bottom that would cut the soil. It weighed a lot so horses or oxen would usually pull it. It also needed lots of repairs. The modern plow is pulled by one tractor and has metal wheels that spin. It can turn up three to twenty rows or furrows at once and requires very little effort. Modern Plow Description Mann, Robberts, and David H. Thompson. "Plows and Plowing." Plows and Plowing.

Today it only takes a few hours to plow a few acres of land with a tractor. It is a much faster and efficient method then the plow that was used during colonial times. It would take a farmer a few days to plow a few acres of land. Thanks to the help of John Deer and many others, it is now easier to plow farm fields. Malynn Malynn Malynn Malynn Malynn
