Castleville: Crops Full Guide

A Complete Guide about Crops and Farming                          For a Quick Guide click here


Farm Plots are placed on land. You plant seeds in them and plants are ready over time.
You start the game with 3 farm plots and you can buy extra plots from the market. Farming is the activities of placing the crop, seeding and harvesting. Farming is a way to earn additional coins. The harvesting of the crops will also give experience points and harvests can be used as crafting items. Depending on your level, there is a limit of farm plots you can have:



Levels
Plots Limit
  1-11 30
12-14 35
15-19 40
20-24 45
25-29 50
30-34 55
35-40 60


Placing plots in proximity to water sources shortens harvest time by 5-50%, depending on distance as well as quantity of sources touching the edges of the plot. Rivers can be overlapped and are the best way early in the game to decrease harvest times 40-50%. At higher levels water pumps can be used to the same effect.

Inventory Limits
Careful: There are inventory limits: 50 of each harvested item.

Withering Time
The withering time of any crop is 3.5x the crop's harvest time. This is not affected by any method of shortening the harvest time (i.e. fertilizer or water source).




Farm Crop Costs
  • Withered Crops will only gain you half the money back of what it cost to place the crop.
  • Withered period starts after your crops have matured. (when they're ready to harvest)

Farm Crop Profit

Farming grapes are the best, by a Profit per time basis. However, unless you've crowns and have tons of energy potions at your disposal, it is not the best practical option. So, the best option is Flax. In general, profit per minute goes down with a bigger harvest period. Look at the table below and you can decide for yourself how to best spend your energy.
