Charlotte Smith goes to the LAMMA 2013 show to see the high tech machinery which is radically changing farming. Innovations in agricultural engineering are revolutionising the way that food is grown in this country.
The Institution of Agricultural Engineers is concerned that there is a lack of talented engineers working in the industry. Students from Harper Adams University College tell Anna why they want to study the subject.
Charlotte goes inside one of the new 'Top Gear' breed of tractors and talks to farmers about whether their investment will pay off.
Presented by Charlotte Smith and produced by Emma Weatherill.
