Circular fields in the US

kornkreis

There are some Google Mappers (people who search on Google Maps for strange things; and they have found nice things) who found green dots spread all over the US. Since this is a rather unusual form of agriculture in Europe (correct me if I’m wrong) let me just reveal the mystery: Those are just fields. They are circular because you can then use a special kind of irrigation where the pivot is in the middle. There’s a nice entry on Wikipedia about this too.
