A ‘Lionel Messi’ themed cornfield?

Lionel Messi has some of his biggest fans back home in Argentina. While the nation still rejoices in their idol becoming a World Champion, this Argentine farmer has just taken it to the next level. Fans were left scratching their head after looking at pictures of his cornfield. Nobody can quite seem to comprehend the level of precision and detailing this entire process entailed.

Maximiliano Spinazze used a particular algorithm for making this happen. This tribute to the Argentine legend will also be visible from space. That algorithm would tell the machine where to plant the seeds on his cornfield. However, it was Carlos Faricelli, a farming engineer who designed the code for these machines.

The Argentine engineer revealed that he had prepared the code and made it available to every farmer. He also mentioned that through geocoding tools, the machine exactly knew how many seeds were required per square meter in every area.

This was mainly to create a contrast in the final product so the field looked exactly like the Argentine legend. Faricelli told Daily Mail, “So when this corn grows and an aerial shot is taken, where the plants are closer together and the ground is less visible, a more intense green contrasts with where there are fewer plants and then this kind of agriculture art is created.”
