Harvest is spreading across the UK this week with increasing numbers of farmers further north and west swinging into action as crops swiftly ripen.
Although rain temporarily shelved combining plans for some growers earlier in the week, warm weather and a drying wind saw many able to quickly pick up where they left off, with oilseed rape harvest well under way for a significant number of growers.
In spite of the short hold up, many are running well ahead of schedule, with cultivation equipment swiftly following harvesters into the field in some regions to take advantage of good travelling conditions.
