Thanks for the reply. The blue is on the Map Overview and is labelled "Cultivated". I decided to simply plow the field under and replant which worked fine. I think I am understanding better because when I plowed I used a Helper and the coverage was very good but when I seeded/fertilized I did it myself and there are gaps which show on the map. I think it will be OK and I will wait until the barley grows. Perhaps when I harvested that field I missed a lot? Or cultivating? I'm new at this ...oolykee wrote: ↑Fri Aug 24, 2018 11:16 am
Blue color is the fertilizing stage. if it is "spotty" as you say that means you missed the parts in one of the previous fertilizing stages.
But don't worry about it. As soon as you harvest you will be able to apply fertilizer again and opportunity to do a better job next time.
"Spotty" means that little piece will have slightly less grain or what ever you planted.
Now workers will not seed if it has already been seeded. So if you hire them for a job that has already been done they will not function. See under crops what crop has been seeded in that field. If there is a crop growing you just need to wait and/or speed up time and give it a chance to grow.
Hope it helps.
