Send us your drought videos and photos

Dry weather is causing farmers huge worries, with some areas having seen the driest spring for a century.

Parts of the south and east of England have been particularly badly hit, with some crop yields forceast to fall as much as 20%.

In a bid to increase knowledge of the extent of the problem – and potentially share solutions to combating it – we want farmers to share their experiences.

There are various ways you can let us know how the dry weather is affecting you and how bad conditions are in your area.
