The Farming Year Europe series shows farm machinery at work through the four seasons across Europe, with action from Germany, Belgium, France and Holland. Part One focuses on the busy Spring period with ploughing and cultivation work in full swing together with the planting of a whole variety of crops including barley, oats, sugar beet, potatoes, maize, carrots, lettuce, chives and flower bulbs. The programme also features spraying, fertilising and hoeing as the crops grow. Other highlights include spinach harvesting and the beginning of the first cut silage harvest, plus some very large slurry spreading and application machinery.
A whole host of tractors are shown including John Deere, Claas, New Holland, Fendt, Eicher, Deutz Fahr, Steyr, Case IH, Challenger and Renault as well as self-propelled machines from Claas, John Deere, Ploeger, Krone, Verveat and Challenger. From the latest machinery to classic tractors and implements from the 1970s and 80s, this is a unique record of agriculture in Europe today.
