Arable April has kicked off around the country, and this year, the Irish Farmers Journal have teamed up with Irish Grain Growers and Seedtech to bring you a photo competition.

The theme of the photo competition is sustainability. Make sure to upload your photos with a good caption to let us know what you are doing.
