A plow is a tool or farm implement used in farming for initial cultivation of soil in preparation for sowing seed or planting to loosen or turn the soil. Plows are traditionally drawn by working animals such as horses or cattle, but in modern times may be drawn by tractors.
A plow may be made of wood, iron, or steel frame with an attached blade or stick used to cut the earth. It has been a basic instrument for most of recorded history, although written references to the plow do not appear in English until 1100 AD at which point it is referenced frequently.
The plow represents one of the major advances in agriculture.
