Description of Content

There is no tractor with the high clearance necessary to clear the rows of fully grown Brussels sprouts on Mr. V. Wightman's market gardening establishment at Ashton (SA), hence this efficient improvisation. Rear wheels are 6 ft. 6 in. in diameter; front tyres are from a 500 Series Drill. Mr. Wightman who has two other MF 35s, is able to spray crops right up to maturity -- without damage.
