Those are crops planted in circular patterns to be more effictive, they put a water system in the center that way they wont waste water or fertilizer etc.

These are crop fields irrigated by a center-pivot sprinkler system. A long row of sprinklers on motorized wheels slowly rotates as the sprinklers operate. It's a means of irrigating a large field without having to manually move a row of sprinklers. These are often used for growing corn. There are some high detail images of these type of fields here.
This is outside of Pasco, Washingtont (where I live)
