Apparently the cover image of a January 1971 issue of a magazine called ‘Texas Highways’ (which I would love a subscription to). The feature article is also scanned and available here . It describes experiments in astroturfing highway medians and traffic islands with a special landscaping surface developed by Monsanto.
