In this episode, with the UK heatwave set to see temperatures climb towards a record-breaking 40ºC, we ask could it simply become too hot to harvest?
As the latest farm fatality figures are released, we look ahead to Farm Safety Week – and the 10th anniversary of the Farm Safety Foundation.
On the markets, we examine why commodity prices have eased so much in the past month.
Farming – it's a stressful job often involving long hours often working alone. So are we doing enough to look after our mental health?
And we join the crowds and the livestock classes – at the Great Yorkshire Show.

This episode is co-hosted by Johann Tasker and Surrey Farmer Hugh Broom with Farmers Weekly senior livestock reporter Michael Priestley.
