I wonder how many hours it took the people to make this

Run Geiger counters, check radioactivity, see how the grass and what direction it lies on the ground before jumping to conclusions it is not man made.
Crop Circle Tidbits
More than 10,000 Crop Circle formations (Agriglyphs) have been found or catalogued worldwide. More than 6,000 crop circles have been investigated and documented since 1980. Many show intricate patterns, designs, pictograms, glyphs, geometric shapes, fractals, 3 dimensional agriglyphs, etc.
The Crop Circle phenomena has also been found in snow, frozen bodies of water and sand. More than 80 witnesses have witnessed crop circles being created within a few seconds by one or more balls of light (orbs). In 1989, a Japanese TV crew filmed a crop circle forming in the early hours of the morning. The film footage shows a swirling motion of energy, which lasted less than 15 seconds, forming a crop circle.
Crop circles are usually not round, but slightly elliptical. In a real crop circle the plant’s shafts/stalks (mostly wheat, but also grass, barley, canola, buckwheat, linseed, rice paddies, corn, sunflowers, blueberry bushes, trees, etc.) are bent around an inch above soil (corn stalks are bent a couple of inches above the soil) and the plants are laid in precise geometric swirl patterns with little signs of physical damage. There may be light burn marks at the base of stems, altered cellular structure and soil chemistry, increased magnetic particle deposits, discrepancies in background radiation, alteration of the local electromagnetic field, depletion of the local watershed, along with long-lasting energy patterns. Some analyzed crop circles have shown higher radiation levels. Crop circles range in size from a few inches to hundreds of feet across and have been as large as 200,000 sq. ft.
In real crop circle formations the stems are not broken but are bent at 90° angles about an inch off the ground, at the plant’s first node. The plants are subjected to a short and intense burst of heat or energy that softens the stems or stalks allowing them to be folded over onto the ground at a 90° angle. When the stems or stalks re-harden into their new position, the plants and crop are not damaged and continue to grow. This is the method used to identify a real crop circle formation (agriglyph). The canola oil plant has a structure like celery.
If the stalk is bent more than about 45°, the stalk will break. When crop circles are found in canola fields, the stalks are bent 90°. Research and laboratory tests suggest that microwave or ultrasound may be the only method capable of producing this effect, but plant biologists are still baffled by this phenomenon.
Crop circles are not a modern phenomenon and may have been occurring for hundreds to thousands of years or longer. They exist in the centuries-old folklore of South Africa and China, and are in Native American Indian legends. They are even mentioned in books of the Bible. The first definitive written account of a crop circle is from August 8, 1590 and is found in “The Natural History of Stafford-Shire“, published in 1686. In “A Natural History of Staffordshire“, references to rings, circles and other shapes found in grassy fields can be found. There are also other references from England’s 15th century that suggest crop circle formations. In John Aubrey’s “Natural History“, a 1633 school teacher seen green circles made by the spirits in the grass. Another early historical record of a crop circle from 1678, is the “Mowing Devil” case, where a farmer’s field was believed to have been visited by a devilish entity that trampled the crops down in a circle. There is a wood engraving of this event. The scientific journal, Nature, decided to include in one of its issues a reference and a picture of the June 17, 1996 (648′ long) DNA double helix (field of barley) crop formation (shown below), with spiraling spheres of different sizes, which was found in Alton Barnes, England.
In the past 25 years, more than 10k crop circles have been found in more than 29 countries:
England, US, Canada, Germany, Australia, The Netherlands, Hungary, Japan, Wales, France, Scotland, Switzerland, Czech Rep, Austria, Italy, New Zealand, Russia, Finland, Israel, Poland, Brazil, Mexico, India, Sweden, Ireland, Yugoslavia, China, Argentina, Croatia, Denmark, Peru, Romania, Siberia, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, Afghanistan, Bulgaria, Chile, Egypt, Isle-of-Man, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Nigeria, Norway, Sardinia, Tasmania, Ukraine, Uruguay, etc. Most of the elaborate crop circles found, are found around England’s ancient and sacred site areas (Stonehenge, the earth mound of Silbury Hill, Avebury, etc.). Southern England is where around 90% of the elaborate crop circle formations and designs are found. A majority of the world’s crop circles are within 40 miles to Stonehenge.
