The creation of crop formations in Brazil is a very interesting
case study for the phenomenon as a whole. The formations started
a few years ago as simple concentric circles, and have been --
very, very slowly - growing in complexity, even though they are
still very crude, or as one may indeed say, still pretty much
"ridiculous" in comparison to the current British ones.

Aerial photos of the latest ones can be seen at:

They are very reminiscent of the very first crop circles created
by Doug and Dave. Very crude.

It's also very important to inform readers abroad that even
those that defend some of those Brazilian formations as having a
mysterious origin acknowledge several of them are also clearly
hoaxed. In the same link above, for instance, Ivo Dohl, a local
journalist and one of the first on the scene in many of the
formations, reminds that some "may have been created with the
help of PET bottles filled with sand tied to broomsticks".

That's right, because those exact tools have been found inside
one of the past formations. It's a fascinating adaptation of the
cords and planks more commonly used abroad.

For the believers, though, the logic is always that despite all
the clear evidence of hoax, the formations that were not proved
as hoaxes must be very mysterious. That is, until those
certified as "authentic" crop circles are also proved as hoaxes,
in which case one may leave the field, as Pat Delgado did,
and/or claim an elaborate conspiracy to discredit them, as Colin
Adrews and many others do.
