At the end of the 2010 crop circle season in England I stated my intention to publish results of laboratory investigations into cobweb-like materials found in crop circles, and, subsequently, soil and root samples taken from those sites. However, at this stage this presents a potential problem, namely that our Research Centre’s arrangement with our funder includes an agreement between us that we will not disclose the specifics of either his identity or interest until the research is complete, and then not until the date of formal publication in a peer-reviewed scientific journal. Our Patron is a well-known advocate of non-conventional approaches to ecology, with a keen interest in metaphysical solutions to ecological problems, and to reveal our results out of context would attract unwelcome publicity, which could prove detrimental to further research. The research is not-for-profit and motivated out of private personal interest in looking for innovative ways toward active but balanced-state harmony in natural approaches to agricultural practice. That is not to say that our findings thus far cannot be shared, however. We feel that it would benefit the greater good if interested people were made aware that, apart from their obvious beauty, crop circles present something worthy of continued scientific investigation, which anyone can engage with, and to offer guidance for signs to look for and report.
