Fire insurance claims by farmers have plummeted in the North West.
In 2015, the sector made claims worth £5.5m - the next year that figure stood at just £1.5m.
The NFU Mutual says electrical faults and arson are the main causes of farm blazes.
The insurer says December to February is paek time for fires and is urging farmers to have plans in place to evacuate their family, staff and livestock.
"Fire remains one of the greatest hazards to the lives of farmers and with claims peaking in February and December, it’s important to be alert to the risks and have plans prepared and shared with family members and staff,” said Tim Price, NFU Mutual Rural Affairs Specialist.
“The scale of these claims shows how important it is to take all possible steps to prevent fires breaking out, and to have clear plans to evacuate people and livestock safely in the event of a fire. Also, it’s vital to make sure you have the right sort of fire extinguishers maintained in good order so you can fight small fires safely.”
