View 2022 Results.


The executive of the NZPA announce that the 1st place getters in the Conventional and Reversible classes of the 2021 New Zealand Ploughing Championships hosted by Waimea Plains PMA, held at Riversdale, will be our representatives at the 67th World Ploughing Contest now hosted by the Republic of Ireland in September 2022.

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:

  • SouthFuels Silver Plough Conventional
  • Reversible plough
  • Rural News Horse plough
  • Vintage plough

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