Large scale ploughing
Hello all,

The link below will take you to some very large scale ploughing photos, that I found on another farming forum;

http://farmingforum.co.uk/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1185747539

Now that is what I call serious, big time ploughing!!

Regards,

TC ;-)

Re: Large scale ploughing
TC very impresive photos. Excellent equipment. Don´t you think it would be better to use disk harrows instead of plows? With tandem disk harrows (big ones) I think you could do more hectares per day. What do u think?
Regards.

Re: Large scale ploughing
Ploughing is probably more suitable than discing, in some of the heavier soil types Victor. It is also a more efficient method of weed control, in certain situations (such as grass type weeds such as blackgrass & couch).

Discs or tynes would certainly give you higher workrates but this gang of ploughs would be doing a fair area per day anyway, I should think ;-)
