Many young Irish people have participated in the 2000-mile harvest in the US, but few get the chance to see crops through from one end of the year to the other. Well, the Irish Tillage and Land Use Society (ITLUS) has just launched an opportunity to spend a crop season as an intern in the American midwest.

The opportunity is being provided thanks to regular Irish Farmers Journal columnist Kevin Rosenbohm and his family. Kevin farms on the western side of the midwest, a region famous for growing maize and soyabeans.
