Actually I think setting the HeadWidth and HeadLength options to be
0 would be a better way to hide the arrows.  This can be done by
putting the options on the command line of a vector plotting command
such as PlotVectorField.

In[5]:= <<Graphics`PlotField`

In[6]:= PlotVectorField[ {x,y},{x,-2,2},{y,-2,2},
                HeadWidth -> 0, HeadLength -> 0]

Out[6]= -Graphics-
