I've been comparing these rice fields:
Location of Gbedin Rice Station according to:
Photos of rice paddies and its features in Liberia:

-Rice paddie showing central canal: http://www.aims-liberia.org/saclepea.php
Location you asked before:
Gbedin Rice Station according to a previous mapping made by you:
There are both orthogonal and irregular fields of rice.
It's said that Gbedin is the site of Liberian major rice project.
Structures of canals are very permanent.
Comparing both fields: they are in the same river basin (that place you
asked is 100km down the river from Gbedin), same landscape, same structures.
I guess there can't be another culture with identical features in the same
For me, what you had shown must be rice.
