PLOUGH WITH A RIPPER TO FACILITATE DRAINAGE
In order to properly prepare the soil for hazelnut planting, the first step is to make a furrow at least 90–100 cm deep to facilitate water drainage and prevent water stagnation.
Ploughing can be carried out using a ripper (with one or more teeth) or a plough. In the case of ripping, it is advisable to work in two directions, crossing the tracks in order to make the first 40 cm of soil as loose as possible. Cultivation should be carried out in midsummer (July–September).
