Farmers work to collect tonnes of potatoes in the annual harvest in Joypurhat, Bangladesh.<br />
<br />
The images were taken by Rafid Yasar, a student from Bogura.<br />
<br />
Rafid said, "There is about 500 metric tonnes of potatoes on this farm.  They are exported abroad as well as nationwide.  The farmers don't earn very much for their work despite this - as little as 10 pence per kilogram."<br />
<br />
"Over the winter, this area exports the largest amount of potatoes across the country."<br />
