Old designation (also Driesch, Driescher, Dreesch, Triesch or Triescher) for meaning "uncultivated land" or "unploughed field". In the old field or grass cultivation, these were exhausted acres of land that were left fallow for years, overgrown with grass and then used as pasture before being ploughed back into arable land. The term is also often part of field names. In viticulture, it is used to describe a planted vineyard or vineyard that has not been cultivated or tended for several years. See also under fallow land.
