    What are these Grass Shapes

    I live on about a 100 acres and every year some areas of grass have these curves in them. I will post a picture of one from each end. This is a large one that steps off about 75 feet from end to end. Some around here are maybe 15 feet long. I just wondered if these were natural or something from indian days. I live next to a river and in the fields arrowheads and such have been found. Thanks

    I will ad this to my post. These are in the same places year after year. They don't come and go.

    If the rings are in the same locations they could be of Indian origin. I have seen noticeable vegetation rings where Monongahela villages once stood. The clam shells, charcoal and bone material that is still in the soil causes an area of greater fertility and a difference in plant growth. These areas when plowed appear much darker.

    Re: What are these Grass Shapes

    My guess would be fungi below the surface. Like someone else mentioned google "fairy rings".

    Umm... I thought fairy rings were when a mushroom explodes and makes a ring of new srooms

    Odd - maybe check for meteorites. I've heard there is a lot of that in KS.

    Can you get an aerial shot?
    Just like Texas in 1880.

    Re: What are these Grass Shapes

    Mushrooms grow by a network of roots under the surface, super nutrients, hence the greener grass. when the conditions are right, up springs the mushrooms in a circle, or arc. "fairy rings" The circle grows larger?

    Or something like that.
