Amazing maize maze in shape of Wisconsin
AN enormous maze made from maize and oats in the shape of Wisconsin and containing the design of a barn with the sun – made by planting oats – shining overhead opens in the American state later this month.
It has been grown on farmland near Janesville in honour of a 150-year-old farm owned by the Hughes family, and to celebrate the states 150th birthday.
It features 2.5 miles of paths. The oats are expected to ripen to a bright golden-yellow, picking out the sun in the design.
