Short description: This new plough skims off a shallow layer of the contaminated top soil and buries it at a depth of about 45 cm without inverting the 5–45 cm horizon. The results are that radiation levels at the soil surface are greatly reduced, the contamination becomes much less available for plant uptake and in most cases there is little or no effect on soil quality.
