Not that I'd had much practice on ploughed land but you're probably best to choose whatever you normally use i.e. 60-70,10,2+ If it's rough ploughed you may want to use the 5 inch coil to get in between the ups and downs and with the benefit that this coil is a lot more stable than the stock coil so can be run a bit higher. Plus of course keep an eye out for surface finds especially non metallic stuff.
