Rectangular Crop Fields

Lake Elwell, Montana, USA

Story by UrtheCast Gallery April 15th, 2015

The numerous rectangular crop fields near Lake Elwell, Montana are part of the Golden Triangle, an area encompassing Havre, Shelby, and Great Falls. This region produces around 45% of Montana’s wheat crop. Urthecast’s 5-meter resolution pushbroom camera Theia captured this image when some fields have already been harvested. Greener rectangles signify fields that will be harvested later in the fall.
