Model (Scale 1:8) of Fison's adjustable double furrow plough, 1872

This is a design of plough made by Mr. J.P.Fison about 1872. Double furrow ploughs had been tried long before the 19th century but did not come into general use until design improvements led to a reduction in the tractive effort required.
