    iI find your films an excellent source for research. However, the description is often inacurate. I appreciate you cannot be a specialist in every technical area. In the case of this film it is not a \"plough digs up the potatoes\", but a spinner lifting the potatoes. I believe it is oats being stacked, not wheat. The men are not \"pitchforking silo\" but are pitching grass into a silo to make silage. I believe it is (thrashed) straw being stacked in the Dutch barn, not the crop.
