Crops, conditions and combines – at a glance

Harvest is continuing apace between the rain showers, but Farmers Weekly readers have still been finding time to share their photos with other readers via our Harvest Highlights gallery.

It now has well over 700 pictures, providing an at-a-glance snapshop of crops, conditions and combines around the country. Here is a sample:
