Edge plants How to plant Edge plants Helpful information Edge Plant strategy


◄ Meadow: main plant (jasmin) + edge plant (bamboo)

Edge plants are planted on the same fields/fertile fields, gardens and meadows with your normal crops.
example: Plant a field of cabbage then plant bamboo on that same field.

You will need village dollars to plant edge plants. You may transfer farm cash for village dollars from the village bank.

You will need many different edge plants and their by products to complete the Cooperative Village upgrades and make the different products in the factories.

Once you harvest a crop with edge plants those fields/fertile fields, gardens or meadows will end up wet, dry or rocky and have a -70% yield penalty that will last the length of the main crop that was planted.
example: Cabbage w/bamboo, anything you plant on this field will be -70% yield for the next 45 minutes.
Planting crops on these wet, dry or rocky fields/fertile fields, gardens or meadows will shorten the penalty times and you will also give you by products from the edge plants.

HOW TO PLANT
Sow edge plantPlant your main crops
then go back and left-click on a Field, Garden or Meadow and click on the Sow edge plant icon

Plant your normal crops first.
Click on your crop and select "Sow edge plant" from the ring.
Main farm:
Bamboo +Clay, Willow +Clay, Poplar +White Sand, Spruce +Rock, Oak +Rock
Gourmet farm:
Bamboo +Clay, Willow +Clay, Poplar +White Sand, Spruce +Rock, Oak +Rock, Rubber +Clay
Flower farm:
Bamboo +Clay, Willow +Clay, Poplar +White Sand, Spruce +Rock, Oak +Rock, Cotton +White Sand
Once you harvest your Fertile field, Field, Garden or Meadow will be wet, dry or stony (-70% yield from crops).
This penalty will last the length of time it took to grow the normal crop.

example: Cabbage with Bamboo. Your field will be wet with -70% yield for the next 45 minutes after you harvest your cabbage.

During this 45 minutes I would plant my cheapest crop (wildflowers) to make the timer go faster.
I would get 70% less wildflowers and Clay with each harvest until the penalty ends.

HELPFUL INFORMATION
Even though all edge plants grow in 5 minutes make sure you start them at the same time as your main crop.
If you wait and plant in the last 5 minutes, you'll only get 5 minutes worth of growth.
When you need rocks plant cabbage w/spruce. During the penalty time keep planting wildflowers so you get more rocks when you harvest.
The longer it takes main crops to grow, the more edge plant you get at harvest
You need to take into account growing times, use of humus and the field, garden or meadow levels to determine total edge plants at harvest.
Corn w/bamboo on a level 7 fertile field. Corn w/bamboo on a level 9 fertile field. Rutabaga w/bamboo on a level 9 field.
Total yield: Notice how main crop's growth time and field level determines the amount of edge plants you'll get.
Total cost: Notice how all 3 fields of bamboo cost the same to plant even though they are different. Fig 1A
Fig 1A Shows you that production cost remains the same no matter what field type, field level or main crop you plant a certain edge plant with.
Fig 2A Shows you that your farm's happiness determines the production cost to plant a certain edge plant.
Corn w/bamboo on a level 9 field. Jasmine w/bamboo on a level 5 fertile meadow.
Total cost: Notice how I've lost the bonus from village happiness on main farm because It's in the red with very low
happiness, but I'm getting it on flower farm because happiness is high. Fig 2A

EDGE PLANT STRATEGY
Main farm
I have found rutabaga w/ bamboo or spruce works best here.
I chose rutabaga because it's the middle crop for MF with a 9 min yield. (plant again for a 9 min repair)
During the CC you can still plant rutabaga w/ edge plants in between field missions.

I never plant edge plants on night time crops.

UPDATE: 7/18/2018
Humus started working again on it's own!
We'll see how long it last so stay tuned.

When jetty is in dire need I'll plant edge plants on cabbage. Speaking of cabbage, here is a helpful trick you can try.
say you need a lot of sand
Plant cabbage w/Poplar
then you'll have 45 minutes of dry fields
keep planting wildflowers until the fields are repaired.
This will keep giving you sand each time you harvest wildflowers and they are free to plant.

Gourmet farm
I have found Dandelions work best here.
I chose dandelions because it's the middle crop for GF with a 28 min yield. (plant again for a 28 min repair)
I buy my needed barley because it's so cheap and with just 3 donkeys to feed,  I don't need much.
I plant special lamb's lettuce when needed (without edge plants) or normal at night when I need breeding seeds (without edge plants).
I plant special dandelions at night (without edge plants) or I'll just buy it.

I try to just plant bamboo, spruce, willow or rubber here and save the more expensive edge plants for the FF.

Flower farm
I have found Jasmine works best here.
I chose jasmine because it's the middle crop for FF with a 2 hour yield. (plant again for a 2 hour repair)
I'll plant any of the needed edge plants here.
I make use of all the jasmine in the Distillery by making constant Essence of jasmine.
