    I'm farming in Belgium (crops: sugar beet, wheat, chicory,barley,...; no livestock) and I would like to have
    a subscription to a UK weekly agricultural journal... I'm interested to have news coming over the channel :)
    I'm interested by agronomy, farm's maganement; farm's laws; equipments.
    Also interested about livestock in order to know how this sector behaves.

    Difficult to choose only on google results.

    What is your advice?

    Many thanks.

    Farmers guardian is more livestock focussed than farmers weekly. FW is more Willy waving than FG but there's not that much difference between the two since FG became a magazine too.

    We don't get farmers Guardian or Farmers Weekly any more, but most of the news is here thanks to the diligent posting by various mods and others, I don't miss FW at all.

    When I rarely get a copy of FG or FW they seem to be mostly advertising
    Any ''news'' that they carry I have inevitably already read on here or some other outlet

    If I was you I wouldn't bother with either of them just stay right here

    FG is doing a lot more arable writing than it used to, some of it is actually worth reading! and doesn't seem as advertiser biased as FW
  9. I like Farmers Guardian, got a subscription.

    Not weekly but have a look at Farm Business as a general publication and Arable Farmer for a specific arable focus.
    For machinery get a subscription to Farmers Guide.

    I like both FG and FW. They are different but still enjoy them.

    I used to like the Scottish Farmer too when I lived up there.

    Good enough read if you are into making & fixing things but don't really think it fits the description of what the OP is asking after.
    If I had to choose one Farmers Guardian would be my pick.

    One thing about this place that the mags dont do is the very wide spectrum of contributors.
    We have everyone from the inveterate bodgers to those discussing the best way to get a top spec range rover, plus pics ranging from the latest direct drill to the latest in brazilian haircuts

    thanks to all for your feedback.
    I'll go for FW.
  20. Stef - dont speak to subs (subscriptions), speak to editorial instead and get them to write an article about your homemade auto steering solution!!
