When it comes to pulling heavy loads, the diesel-only Toyota Land Cruiser has a reputation second to none.

The fact of the matter is that diesel is still the only way forward for the vast majority of farmers - in the medium term at least.

That is not being short-sighted. It is not being anti-government or anti-electric vehicle.

It is simply the reality at farm-gate level - as of now and for some time.
