AGROTEXTE is 40 years old

Birthday performance

On October 10, 1982, Jean-Yves Fréchette teamed up with some farmers from Saint-Ubalde to write the micro-poem "TEXTE TERRE TISSE" while plowing hay in a field with their tractors. Each letter was 91 m high by 76 m wide. The whole was spread over 1.6 km and even got its entry in the GUINESS book of records.

40 years later, on Monday October 10, 2022, as part of L'Arpenteur de Bleu Diode, Jean-Yves Fréchette gave an anniversary performance to which the public was invited!

It was an opportunity to meet the Guinness record holders for the largest plowed text in the world.
