from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia

  • n. In agriculture, the furrow that remains open in the center of a ‘land’ or field in plowing.


Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • This system is a bit more particular, and hard for the careless plowman; but it overcomes that unsightly "dead-furrow" in the middle of a field and brings the "finishing-furrow" on the edge.
