Once the earth is well loosened, you must trace the furrows in which you sow. When plotting furrows, observe the necessary spacing, which differs according to the development of the species (we are often surprised by the space required for certain plants and their growth rate).

The furrower

The furrower

• It is a kind of rake whose teeth are replaced by small coulters with adjustable spacing.
• It allows to draw parallel grooves for row seeding.

The hoe

The hoe

• Lightweight tool equipped with a tip and a tongue, or a breakdown and a fork.
• Only the tongue-and-groove serfouette allows tracing of the furrows.
• The tracing of a straight furrow is done with the help of the chalk.

The cord

The cord

• It consists of two small stakes between which a rope is stretched.
• Some cords, more advanced,
with a turnstile, are equipped with a reel-reel on which the rope is automatically wound by a spring system.
• You will use it for sowing or for transplanting online.
• The cord will also serve you when drawing paths, the size of borders, etc.

The beamer-butteur (or collapsible bumper)

The beamer-butteur (or collapsible bumper)

• Composed of two coulters joined in a V at one end, it allows to dig furrows more or less wide and deep.
• This tool is used to dig a furrow into which potatoes can be "sown".
• It is also used for ridging (potatoes, beans, peas or asparagus), its two shares allowing it to reject the land on both sides of the line followed.
• There are models with adjustable opening.
