Hi,

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. :hi:
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 ... :blushnew:

Thanks again,

Bill

Hi Bill,

There are many factors. Like if you do not harvest just a dot and then plow it in it will have the last stage fertilization or at least the one that was there while you were harvesting the field.

Maybe this example will help. If you fertilize the field to the last stage and then harvest half of the field and half is left. If you cultivate or plow the field the harvested part will be unfertilized and the part that was not harvested will have the last stage of fertilizing.

Or maybe this. Mind that you probably have a fertilizer in your seeder and every little bit you missed has one stage fertilizing less then the rest of the field.

The best practice is to do a proper job every time and the whole field will have the same state of fertilizing.

Or absolutely very best thing to do is to relax and make mistakes and just enjoy the game. In the end we all make mistakes. :)

Happy farming and I hope you like the game.

Also, send me a private message here or on my YouTube channel (you have it on my signature). I will be more then glad to help.

It is Friday evening here in Dublin so happy Friday. :)

Ploughing and Cultivating

Post by Montoya » Sat Aug 25, 2018 4:41 pm

I am sure this has been asked many times, but I am unable to find my answer, having looked online I find various answers, so here I am once more seeking advice. Not new to the game, but still some things I do not know.

On the ploughing scheduled fields, do I need to cultivate afterwards?

Thanks

I do live and work here but I am not from here. Been living in Dublin for 4 years now. If you work in IT and from Europe, Dublin/Ireland is the place to be. But (to go even further in OT) considering the real estate market one crazy place to be living in. :D

The game does not require you to cultivate after plowing but if you are trying to play realistically you would never plant on plowed only ground

Hugassi is correct in real life if you try to plant plowed ground you would destroy the planter in no time flat so to be realistic you need to cultivate to take the hard rigs out but with the plow disk that would have 9.5 inch spacing between the blades but the cultivater disks they are 7.5 inch spacing so it takes the rigs out but can be a one time pass in real life.

Thank you Cmtaylor,
On the other hand, personally, I like to do the work in phases:

Plow
Fertilizing dry biological (phase 1)
Cultivate
Fertilize biological liquid (phase 2)
Sowing but without fertilizer together
Fertilize after starting to grow with synthetic (phase 3)
Harvest
Seed rotation next time

If possible I do everything with medium equipment and above all, without stress!
It's just personal perferences, respect who does everything together for example; sometimes I do too.
Just try to be realistic and have fun because it is still a game that I already have 2500 hours of gameplay with pleasure and I hope so much more with FS19 :)

Note: I'm sorry if my English is not the right one!

When trying to wrap a square bale I get a message saying "this bale not supported" Is there something special I should do? Please help me out with this.

There are specific wrappers for round and square bales. The stock game does not come with a square bale wrapper if I recall. You will need a mod wrapper like in the Kuhn DLC. There is new square wrapper in the mod hub recently for PC - https://farming-simulator.com/mod.php?l ... tle=fs2017
Platform: WIN 10 | Game Version: PC Steam 1.4.1
Devices: Logitech G29 Wheel, peddles & shifter | Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick

Current Map: FS19 - Fellsbrunn with Seasons, awaiting Greenwich Valley update.

you either dont have the right wrapper for the shape of the bale or you're trying to wrap hay or straw which isnt possible without using seasons mod

Was the FS17 Goldcrest Valley map removed from the mod hub? I can’t find it in the Xbox one console modhub.
