I saw this on the Twilight Zone. They claim to help , they write a book called "To serve man" that shows us how to grow crops more efficiently but it is a cook book!!

Some took some planning by the farmers, most the farmers worked with nature to get the most use from the land.

Ever since the crop circles were exposed, aliens now use patterns to send messages back to the mother ship. We know they are hiding the aliens in Area 51 even though it has been declassified, we just can't find them yet. But we will. Once we decipher what codes they are sending we may have the upper hand. Save your water folks!

I remember flying over some of the tulip fields preparing to land in Amsterdam on a sunny morning and it was just spectacular.
