Furrowing Machine

 

an agricultural machine with a double-bladed terracing plow as its working organ. Furrowing machines are used to make drainage trenches (furrower trenchdiggers) as well as slit trenches for watering agricultural plants (furrower slit cutters). Irrigation ditches are cut with detachable furrowers attached to cultivators (in place of the blade) and seeding machines.
