About harrowing
In agriculture, a harrow (often called a set of harrows in a plurale tantum sense) is an implement for breaking up and smoothing out the surface of the soil. In this way it is distinct in its effect from the plough, which is used for deeper tillage. Harrowing is often carried out on fields to follow the rough finish left by plowing operations. The purpose of this harrowing is generally to break up clods (lumps of soil) and to provide a finer finish, a good tilth or soil structure that is suitable for seedbed use. Coarser harrowing may also be used to remove weeds and to cover seed after sowing. Harrows differ from cultivators in that they disturb the whole surface of the soil, such as to prepare a seedbed, instead of disturbing only narrow trails that skirt crop rows (to kill weeds).
There are four general types of harrows: disc harrows, tine harrows (including spring-tooth harrows, drag harrows, and spike harrows), chain harrows, and chain-disk harrows. Harrows were originally drawn by draft animals, such as horses, mules, or oxen, or in some times and places by manual labourers. In modern practice they are almost always tractor-mounted implements, either trailed after the tractor by a drawbar or mounted on the three-point hitch.
A modern development of the traditional harrow is the rotary power harrow, often just called a power harrow.

Last night’s downpours, stretching from Birmingham to Cumbria, will be followed by more storms today, continuing until late Thursday.

BBC Weather Watchers said that there were a staggering 50,000 lightning strikes in 24 hours across the UK following the weekend heatwave.

The lightning strikes lit up the skies across the UK – causing mesmerising purple and blue hues.

Met Office forecaster Bonnie Diamond said: “There are risks of severe thunderstorms across most of Britain. 

“We are concerned that there may be flash flooding in low-lying areas. 

“But it will be sudden torrential downpours, not long sustained periods of rain.”

The Met Office has issued yellow thunderstorm warnings across the UK between today and Thursday.

The warnings apply to the whole of the UK between today and Wednesday, while England and Wales are also thought to be at risk on Thursday.

The warning states: “Some places are likely to see severe thunderstorms early next week – but there is significant uncertainty in location and timing.”

According to the Met Office, the warnings mean: “There is a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes and large hail.

“There is a slight chance that power cuts could occur and other services to some homes and businesses could be lost

“There is a small chance of fast flowing or deep floodwater causing danger to life.”

One of the first places to suffer from the sudden change of weather yesterday was Aberystwyth in Wales.
