Welcome to New Zealand Ploughing Association Incorporated.

One of the aims and objectives of the association is to promote and encourage interest in the art and skill of ploughing the land.

To achieve this, up to twenty three Qualifying Events are hosted by individual Associations throughout New Zealand each year and the Winners compete at the annual New Zealand Ploughing Championships held over two days in April or May. Day One is the Stubble competition and Day Two is the Grassland competition.

The four championship  classes are as follows:

  • Gulf Lubricants Silver Plough (conventional)
  • Farmlands Fuel Reversible
  • Rural New Horse Plough
  • Vintage Plough.

The Winners of the Gulf Lubricants Silver Plough Conventional and Farmlands Fuel Reversible Classes represent New Zealand at the Annual World Contest held in any one of the thirty countries affiliated to the World Ploughing Organisation.
