Argentine Corn Field Planted With Face of World Cup Winner Messi

A crop farmer in Argentina used a special algorithm to sow corn seeds in a certain pattern that would create a visual image of Lionel Messi's face when the corn plants grew. The coding was designed by a farming engineer and using geocoding tools, the machinery knew how much seed per square meter to put in certain places to create contrast and form the image. The farmer did this as a tribute to the Argentine soccer team's victory in the World Cup and to celebrate their star player, Lionel Messi.
