Re: Older farming pictures. From Latvia.
Must be the same type of magazine, just from a different month. 1982. Loading sugar beets. From left: Kamaz, DPS-4,2 sugarbeet harvester (MTZ 80 is its power source). It is a self-propelled machine, but instead of having an uncommon cab and engine, it has MTZ to run all the mechanisms. And, yes, it can be taken off and used as a normal tractor. Just put on the wheels and go:D. Then T-150K + something:D (I can't figure out what it is), T-150K + RŽT-8 slurry tanker (it's painted blue, which is untypical, they were usually brown or red-brown).

Another newspapaer picture. K-700A + semi tanker, this type was usually used for lime application on fields. Photo taken in January 1991 during the barricade time in our capital city of Riga.

Picture from a magazine, May or early June 1988. MTZ 82. Nice way of furrowing potatoes, isn't it?:D But it's better than nothing when you don't have any equipment yet.

Re: Older farming pictures. From Latvia.
This one's also from a magazine connected to agriculture. 1988, I think. Most machinery is brand new or a little used. Must be the equipment park of one cooperative. From bottom, right side: JuMZ 6 AKL, 2x MTZ 80, JuMZ 6 AL (older modification, this particular one is built as an excavator), T-150K, K-700A. Left side, from bottom: 2x 2-PTS-4 trailers (hard to tell 785A or 887B), back part of JuMZ 6 AL, 2x 2-PTS-9 trailers, PRT-11 manure spreader (brand new from factory), MTZ 80, T-150K.

And this already from 21st century. Late July 2006. Rye harvest with Jenisei 1200 N. This combine belongs to my village's former cooperative. This is the second field which was harvested when the Rekord Clipper straw chopper had been built on instead of heap maker (that thing didn't work anyway as it was supposed to do, just a decoration :D, swaths left behind the combine). This is a cover photo of our region's newspaper "Liesma" ("The flame").

This photo is from a well-established soviet newspaper "Cīņa" ("The fight"), May 1987. Potato planting with brand new KSM-6 potato planter attached to T-150 (which also looks brand new).
