There are aspects of modern agriculture that grieve me, but the technological advances and accomplishments of modern agriculture are undeniably impressive. With that in mind, I found this BBC Harvest 2015 series a real delight to watch.
I learned a lot watching this series. Like, for example, I learned that sweet corn is an "exotic" new crop in the UK, and that the harvesting of some crops (berries mostly) must still be done by hand. If you have an interest in agriculture, you will enjoy these videos.
