In this week's episode, votes to scrap the compulsory levy for two key farm sectors mean a smaller future for the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board.
In an exclusive interview, Defra secretary George Eustice says the statutory levies for potatoes and horticulture will go – and other farm sectors will now face similar votes.
So what happens next?
Sugar beet growers say it has become too risky to grow the crop, as hundreds of farmers take British Sugar to task over low prices.
With overseas holidays looking difficult this year, we look at how farmers can tap into the market for staycations.
And we meet the Welsh teenager who took on his family's dairy farm following the tragic death of his father.
