won Designation (also won Hall, southern German robe) for the Middle Ages division of the arable land of a municipality into three sections, the so-called trough. The tripartite division resulted from the three-field farming that was practiced at the time. Depending on the number of farms, these were divided into strips or plots of the same size, which were cultivated in the so-called Flurzwang (enforced regulation on the part of the municipality, the entirety of the owners or the respective landlord). This means that the work on all fields of a field always had to be carried out at the same time. The advantage of these elongated parcels was that only a few (complex) turns were necessary. As typical characteristics of an open field, the length is at least ten times the width. Inheritance division often resulted in extreme dismemberment over time. The often imaginative names allow conclusions to be drawn about the situation with regard to climatic or soil conditions or former agricultural use. For example, Am Galgenberg, On the ley (Indication of slate), beautiful view and in the wet hole.

Such troughs are particularly in southwest Germany and central Germany such as in the Neckar and Rhineland, Rheinland-Pfalz, Hessen and Franconia frequently found. In viticulture today, especially in Germany, there are many names of names. They are part of individual layers, but can also be cross-layer.
