As Autumn approaches the nights get longer than the days and we prepare to plant next seasons crops. The fields are cultivated and left for the weeds to grow which are then sprayed off with glyphosate. If this product is ever banned as some wish, farming will become very difficult and yields will drop. The vote to leave the EU has put farming in a very vulnerable position and will see the end of support payments which keep all farmers going. It is still a mystery to me as to why so many farmers wanted to leave the institution which has kept them going for the last 40 years!
