Best Answer

Very few (if any) farm fields are perfectly square or rectangular. In industrial farming, when the farmer is planting the crops with a tractor and planter, he usually starts on one side of the field and works his way across in parallel rows. When he gets to the other side, he is very rarely in line with that side of the field. So, to complete the field, he has to plant a section of shorter and shorter rows, "point rows", in order to make the best use of the cropland. Not all farmers plant point rows, but where they're not planted, some form of weed control must be used to prevent weeds taking over that area.
