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 two of this series looks at the busy summer period when harvesting of various crops is underway including flax, blackcurrants, peas, broad beans and of course wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape. We also find haymaking in progress along with large sprayers, slurry tankers, potato harvesters and a wealth of tractors all at work in Germany, France, Belgium and Holland.
Highlights include pea harvesting teams, roof mounted straw spreaders and four John Deere combines harvesting wheat on the massive fields of eastern Germany. The very latest giant sophisticated machinery rubs shoulders with older kit as we find out how hectic farming is during the summer in Europe.
