Tim Richter a farmer i visited in the USA sent this picture of his son stood in his maize crop after the high winds. He reports the yield is still high if he can pick it off the floor.

The picture demonstrates the joys of farming. When you think you’ve got everything right the weather throws you a curve ball.

I imagine my self stood in the field and the first thought that comes to mind after thank goodness i’m not the combine driver is a saying we learnt in the USA at the Nuffield contemporay scholars conference, Adopt, Innovate and Overcome.!
