In pictures: Cereals 2016 – the crops, the kit and the people

Leading arable technical event Cereals took place at Chrishall Grange near Duxford on Cambridgeshire on 15 and 16 June.

As well as all of our coverage of the technical aspects, from crop plots to demonstrations, we asked our photographer to get a few shots that captured the “people” side and summed up the unique atmosphere of the two days.
