In Germany or Italy this is not the case. The might shift inside a
crop if they have growing different plants in one crop, but the limits
of the field are legal ones: often the property is spread and the
landscape mixed with lots of different properties, so they can't
simply shift the borders, unless they buy or lease other fields.
