Full Show Summary:
"HARVEST" follows three custom-harvesting crews as they dash from border to border on a six-month cannonball run, chasing crops...and millions in cash. This year, the stakes are higher than ever as the one of history's deadliest drought and tornado seasons bears down on the heartland, killing more than 500 people and leaving behind billions of dollars in damage. As these hard-core harvesters, driving monster machines, dash from one job to the next, they are only one mistake away from losing a job--or their lives. The clock is always ticking, and man, machine or Mo ther Nature could wipe them out at any moment, but like true American heroes, filled with courage and grit, they put their lives on the line every day, because they love what they do.

Every year, deep in America's heartland, there's a race against nature as old as farming itself. From May to September, a group of hardworking men battle weather, machines and each other as they move south to north harvesting crops. Driving huge combines across thousands of miles, they contract work from America's small farmers, combating hail, tornadoes, fire, mechanical trouble and total exhaustion. It's a high stakes gamble for themselves and the people who hire them.
