Most men are dressed in suits and hats and are watching a demonstration of a new tractor. The tractor is an IHC tractor (H series) with dual front wheels, extendable rear wheels and long rear axle. This tractor became very popular for inter-row cultivation of maize, cotton, peas and sorghum. There is a mid mounted mechanical lift cultivator rig attached to the front. The demonstration is being carried out on a cotton field. (Description supplied with photograph)
