Uncertainty over Brexit is being blamed for a shortage in the number of fruit pickers in the West Country.
According to National Farmers Union, a drop in the number of seasonal workers means thousands of tonnes of fruit and vegetables are being left to rot.
It carried out a survey which revealed the equivalent of 16 million apples went unharvested this year.
Jeremy Best has been growing soft fruits like strawberries in Cornwall for more than 40 years.
At least half are picked by Czech workers who come for the season, and half by local staff.
This summer he says he managed to get by - but next year he is concerned there won't be enough pickers.
An NFU survey found there has already been an 11 percent worker shortage in horticulture this year - leading to tonnes of unpicked crops - particularly for apple growers.
There are fears that could lead to a reduction in UK farming - and poor quality imports replacing locally grown food.
The Government already has a 'seasonal workers pilot project' which allows non-EU migrant workers from other parts of the world to come here temporarily to do seasonal work - the NFU wants to see that rapidly expanded to tackle the problem.
