Mid-West Agriculture

Interesting paterns created by the agriculture in the nearly desertic mid-west of the United States, possibly Kansas. Circular fields are used so that booms can rotate and sprair water on the crops, in what is called center pivot irrigation.

 

Update: Indeed this is Kansas. Thanks to jpo for pinpointing the area!
