Poppy fields may refer to:
- Opium poppy fields, where Papaver somniferum is grown, mainly to derive poppy seeds or opium
- Papaver fields, where other species of Papaver are commercially grown (rare, sometimes for seed propagation)
- Fields or meadows on which poppies appear as weeds/wildflowers, see field flowers
- notice: Poppy is the English common name for various (more than 100) flowering plant species of different genera in the family Papaveraceae (see subcategories)
- such fields are often (but not only) grain fields or rapeseed fields; poppies may also appear on fallow fields (if existing in local crop rotation, rare in modern agriculture)
- for poppies appearing mainly on narrow strips around fields, also see field margins
- in Europe such poppies are often Papaver rhoeas, but other/similar species are possible!
- Naturally occurring "flower carpets" of several species (not agricultural fields in the proper sense)
- Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red, a public artwork created at the Tower of London in 2014, consisting of thousands of ceramic red poppies
