Why are farmers very often noticed ploughing as soon as the corn crops have been gathered ?

This is done to expose the under part of the surface soil to the influence of the sun, air, and rain, in order
that when the new seeds are sown the soil will be able to retain moisture for the growing plants, admit air
and enable the roots to secure a firm hold of the ground, and so force their way to the light without too great an
effort.
