Bob Recker, Cedar Valley Innovations, LLC, went up in a plane and took these photos around northeast Iowa on July 12. To say they patterns, droughty spots and overall views of the crops are interesting is an understatement. Take a look and let us know if you have any questions or comments regarding what you see when it comes to the patchy spots and veiny-looking crops. Is it old tile that's turned into underground irrigation rather than drainage? Underground passages redistributing water? Or is it just soil differences? Alien landing pads, perhaps? Let us know what you think is causing these strange patterns! Leave a comment to let us know your theory!
