Who is the greatest farming figure?

Who do you think deserves the title ‘The Greatest Farming Figure’?

There are dozens of potential contenders – it might be a particular farmer, an industry leader, a politican, a scientist, an engineer or even a member of the Royal family. But we want to hear which one person has had the biggest positive effect on agriculture in the last 75 years.

BROWNS-of-WEM-logoThe Greatest Farming Figure is brought to you in association with Browns of Wem – creating and crafting hand-made, individually designed farm buildings for nearly 65 years

This is the second of six categories in our Farming’s Greatest series – others will identify what have been The Greatest Farming Innovation, Machine, Decade, View and Cock-up of the last three-quarters of a century.

You can read some other suggestions in the “Figure” category and contribute your own. We’ll be drawing up a shortlist from all your suggestions and giving you the chance to vote later in the year to pick overall winners in each category.

With FW celebrating its 75th birthday this year, and our sister magazine Crops celebrating its 25th, it seems a fitting time to mark the major milestones affecting our industry over that period.
