Readers’ pics: Harvest, ploughing and sunflowers
In the next few weeks AgriLand will announce the winners of the Harvest Photo Competition for 2019. There are a lot of entries to work through at AgriLand headquarters.
In the mean time, we’ve included some entries that we received in the past few weeks. We also added in a few highlights from the ploughing fields last week that we shot ourselves. The skill level was immense and is definitely worth a watch.
The shots below will bring readers back to better weather, as rain this week has put a stop to field work in many areas.
