  ploughing

 

Thailand

In rural areas carabao are still used for ploughing rice fields. First, a ploughshare with a single cutting blade is used for the rough work.

 

Then, a grid-like frame with numerous vertical bars or slats is used to further soften the soil. See also List of Thai Animal Names.
