Enclosed area of land used for farming. Traditionally fields were measured in acres; the current unit of measurement is the hectare (2.47 acres). In the Middle Ages, the farmland of an English rural community was often divided into three large fields (the open-field system). These were worked on a simple rotation basis of one year wheat, one year barley, and one year fallow. The fields were divided into individually owned strips of the width that one plow team with oxen could plow (about 20 m/66 ft). At the end of each strip would be a turning space, either a road or a headland. Through repeated plowing a ridge-and-furrow pattern became evident. A farmer worked a number of strips, not necessarily adjacent to each other, in one field. The open-field communities were subsequently reorganized, the land enclosed, and the farmers' holdings redistributed into individual blocks which were then divided into separate fields. This enclosure process reached its peak during the 18th century. 20th-century developments in agricultural science and technology have encouraged farmers to amalgamate and enlarge their fields, often to as much as 40 hectares/100 acres.
The open field system was also found in France, Germany, Greece, and Slavonic lands.

1. A geographic region (land or sea) under which something valuable is found.
2. Somewhere (away from a studio or office or library or laboratory) where practical work is done or data is collected.
3. The area that is visible through an optical instrument; SYN. field of view.
4. The space around a body within which it can exert force on another similar body not in contact with it; SYN. field of force, force field.
5. A particular kind of commercial enterprise; SYN. field of operation, line of business.
6. All the competitors in a particular contest or sporting event.
7. (Horse racing) All of the horses in a particular race.
A piece of land cleared of trees and usually enclosed.
Ledina, livada, komad ravnog zemljišta, polje.

1. A location in a record in which a particular type of data is stored. For example, EMPLOYEE-RECORD might contain fields to store Last-Name, First-Name, Address, City, State, Zip-Code, Hire-Date, Current-Salary, Title, Department, and so on. Individual fields are characterized by their maximum length and the type of data (for example, alphabetic, numeric, or financial) that can be placed in them. The facility for creating these specifications usually is contained in the data definition language (DDL). In relational database management systems, fields are called columns.
2. A space in an on-screen form where the user can enter a specific item of information.
In computing, a specific item of data. A field is usually part of a record, which in turn is part of a file.
A data member of a class. Unless specified otherwise, a field is not static.

2. Određena oblast zapisa korišćena za psebnu kategoriju podataka;
3. Podaci sadržani u dva ili više susdenih magnetnih jezgara koji se smatraju jednom jedinicom; najvećavrednost pozicije označava se sa bit-indikatorom.
4. Prostor rezervisan za upisivanje određenih podataka u programu za rad sa bazama podataka. Prazan prostor u polju za unos podataka. Polja mogu da sadrže ime, adresu, telefonski broj, starost, matični broj, pol, poštanski broj ili bilo šta drugo što poželite, sve dok sve stavke u jednom polju imaju sličnu strukturu. Grupa međusobno povezanih polja čini zapis baze podataka.
A region in which military operations are in progress.
In physics, a region of space in which an object exerts a force on another separate object because of certain properties they both possess. For example, there is a force of attraction between any two objects that have mass when one is in the gravitational field of the other.
Other fields of force include electric fields (caused by electric charges) and magnetic fields (caused by magnetic poles), either of which can involve attractive or repulsive forces.
