The negative new press was not received with a big welcome of the local farmers and a photographer appearing by pure chance on the scene a few days later was regarded with some suspicion by the farmers ... Nevertheless, after explaining who I am what is my business I was welcome on every further field ...

Hardly beeing able to follow him, I reached him to witness him preparing another field for planting vegetables - it is a Lemken power harrow with Rauch fertilizer.
