Crop Blob: the end of Circular Crops?

Sometime ago we came across an innovative device.

The Aquacontour by Gardena is a sprinkler irrigation system that allows for free-form lawns.

Virtually any shape can be programmed. Without wasting water.

Is this the end of Circular Crops?

Is the Aquacontour the beginning of a new type of land art? When can we start harvesting a Matisse or a Jean Arp?

Surprisingly the new center pivot irrigation can do 90 degree corners as well.

A soccer pitch can be watered from the middle circle with one single sprinkler…

By creating square irrigation ‘circles’  20% more land can be used!
