More than 50 people have lost their lives in farm-related accidents over the past year.
The shocking statistic is equivalent to one person every week going to work on a UK farm and never returning home.
We look at the reasons behind agriculture's appalling safety record – and ways to improve it.
With farm incomes forecast to decline – how are you preparing for the future?
On the markets, beef prices continue to rise.
We examine the controversy over poor water quality – are farmers really to blame? Or should water companies shoulder more of the responsibility?
And we pay tribute to Prince Philip – as farmers share their memories of the Duke of Edinburgh.
