Whether you’re new to ploughing and need to know the basics for farm work, or are looking to compete in ploughing matches, this handbook is a complete and authoritative guide. This updated second edition includes the current rules for international match ploughing, the scoring system, and ploughing organizations throughout the world.

It also gives an introduction to:

  • The types of plough and how to set them up
  • The main classes of competitive tractor ploughing: vintage mounted and trailed; world-type conventional ploughing; and reversible ploughing
  • A short history of the plough

Among the 200 illustrations, there are over 150 color photographs specially commissioned to show in detail good practices as well as faults and how to correct them. Author Brian Bell, Britain’s leading farm machinery writer, has written this manual with the help of a number of ploughing experts including Ken Chappell, David Chappell, and Peter Alderslade.
