As harvest gathers momentum, so too does our Harvest Highlights photo gallery. We’ve selected some of the latest pictures to show you the progress around the country.
We now have almost 200 photos sent in by farmers and contractors and we’re looking for many, many more.
The first reports of winter wheat being cut are coming in and we’re looking forward to your wheat photos coming in.
Don’t forget, if you submit a photo, it could be the picture we choose for the cover of Farmers Weekly magazine towards the end of harvest.
