This dvd examines the past and present of potato mechanisation by using a combination of archive footage and current filming to display a range of models, from the Ferguson spinner to the Ploeger self-propelled tanker harvester.

The programme starts with manure spreading, ploughing and preparing the soil, taking a look at traditional systems as well as minimum tillage.  The presenters cover ridging and bed-forming with particular emphasis on de-stoners such as the Grimme Combi Star.

Their section on planting runs from the 1950s hand-planting to modern machines from Grimme, Reekie, Keyag and Standen.  Harvesting includes the 400-500 horsepower self-propelled 4-row machines, Dewulf, Ploeger, Standen, Reekie, Grimme and Agrifac.

The final section of the dvd looks at potato handling.
