The Shape of Farming: Water For Crops – download pdf (698 KB)

Farmers use a number of different methods to irrigate crops, and some of them result in pretty interesting shapes.  In this issue, The Shape of Farming: Water for Crops, EO Kids looks at what water has to do with different types of farming practices, and how these practices look from space. Plus, grow your own mini-farm and see how your garden grows with this month’s “Data Viz.”
