The deadline for entries to the 2012 Farmers Weekly Awards has been extended from 30 April to 4 May.

Farmers Weekly runs the awards to recognise and reward producers for their technical and business skills, innovation, commitment to the industry and hard work.

The awards showcase the best farmers in the country by telling their stories.

The aim is to spread best practice, inspire others and influence the public about the role that farmers play in today’s society.

There are plenty of reasons to take time out and get your entry in for one of the 15 categories.

Not only could it lead to industry recognition for you, your family and your team, but previous winners have said it has also given them the ability to negotiate better contracts.

Entering is really easy and you can do it online. If you know of another farmer you think should enter you can also nominate them.
