Nicholas Hughes, N.C.H. Agri Ltd. Moyloughbeg, Co. Galway chooses a Gregoire Besson - Five Furrow RWY6 Plough.

Nicholas Hughes in Oct 2015.
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".

Disc Plough used for deep ploughing in root-infested, sticky, stony, and hard soils. Mixes remains of crops and weeds throughout the extremity of disc plough, so it is ideal for rain-fed areas for checking soil erosion by water and wind. Spring loaded at a loose cancel rear furrow wheel govern the side draft to ensure straight operate and ease of handling by smaller tractor. Other features complement Re-greasable Taper Roller Bearing in disc hubs, Disc angle malleable to improve the insight behind changing soil conditions, Cat I and II grip and the Disc Scrapers are along with variable to ensure that the Discs remain tidy in every one conditions.
