AS part of its Back British Farming campaign, the NFU has had printed large stickers which can be applied to the bodywork of farm vehicles including trailers, tractors and combine harvesters.

NFU South East crops board chairman Laurence Matthews said: “August is the main harvest period when farmers are doing a vital job, gathering in the nation’s food.

“This month we’re mainly harvesting cereals, particularly wheat, the world’s most important food crop.

“We know that motorists get very frustrated by slow-moving farm vehicles, a problem that gets worse during harvest.

“However, we believe these NFU stickers will help motorists connect the farm vehicles they see with the food on their plates.

“Hopefully drivers will perhaps be more patient as these stickers thank people for backing British farming.”

NFU members can request free stickers by emailing campaigns@nfu.org.uk, giving their full name and address (or membership number) and the number of stickers required.

Farmers are asked to tweet a picture to @NFUSouthEast & @NFUtweets once they have applied a sticker to a vehicle, using the hashtag #backBritishfarming.
