The Ohio State Farm Science Review keeps getting better at growing Ohio State logos in cornfields.

The logo was grown in the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio, which hosts the Farm Science Review, an agricultural trade show run by Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.
It was done by using two different hybrids of corn plants, one green and one a drier brown. The two were precisely placed due to something called a smart planter, which sounds quite advanced.
You’ve heard of smart phones, smart highways and now… a smart planter. As the planter was driven across the field, its computer system knew the rate and variety of seed to sow in each area, having noted the differences in soil type, terrain, drainage and organic content within the same field.
