The government has released its strategy for tackling resistance to antibiotics in humans and in animals saying 'there are few public health issues of greater importance'. The five-year plan aims to fight the increasing number of drug-resistant infections and farmers and vets are being told to play their part. They're being advised to use fewer antibiotics and take a more preventative approach instead. Also on Farming Today, tonight sees the start of Harvest - a new series on BBC2.

The three programmes will reveal an early harvest report for the UK, which could give an indication of which crops are likely to be the winners and losers in 2013.

Presented by Anna Hill. Produced by Anna Varle.
