This demonstration was primarily for the South Scotland Conservancy staff and quite a large number of plough types were gathered at Greskine Forest for the event in June 1963. This particular part of the demonstration shows a prototype tine plough with a tine plough head and a sub soiling tine fitted to the plough frame. The sub-soiler tine reached depths of 30-36 inches and was spaced on the frame such that on subsequent runs the plough furrow lay over on top of the previous sub-soiler line. The planted tree was there for also over this line.
The International TD 6 tractor RLW870 has featured on other sites. Can anyone name the driver and any of the assembled people?
