From the blog:
Each year, farmers in the town of Inakadate in Aomori prefecture create works of crop art by growing a little purple and yellow-leafed kodaimai rice along with their local green-leafed tsugaru-roman variety.

Meanwhile, back in the States:

Whole Wheat Sara Lee
MediaPost Publications - Out to Launch - 09/06/2007
Kansas changed its unofficial nickname from "The Wheat State" to the "The Whole Wheat State" yesterday to support Sara Lee's Soft & Smooth Switcheroo: Take Your Whole Grain Sandwich to School Day campaign. The crop image is made of all-natural materials, including 40 bales of wheat straw, 23 tons of crushed limestone and 50 bags of red mulch for the red Sara Lee logo.

@sandy-I believe it is an art form in Japan. Here in the USA, it is just advertising. LOL
