I was really looking forward to seeing the Gregoire Besson RWY6 plough in action following its award at the 2014 Ploughing Championships. (Innovation Rosette Award by Irish Farmers Journal / Toplink). Co. Galway will not immediately come to mind as a tillage county, since the demise of the Tuam Sugar factory, but Nicholas Hughes informed me that between reseeding and preparing ground for barley he is kept busy.
"I grow about 100 acres of barley myself and a few neighbours would grow an equal amount.

Last year was also a busy reseeding year so I had to change my old four furrow for a bigger model, just to manage the extra work. Quigley's my local dealer arranged a demonstration of the Gregoire Besson and when I saw it working I was convinced. It did a nice job in fairly rough conditions, even with only one set of discs on the rear furrow and it left a nice clean finish with no raggedy bits".
