Grass in fs19 questions

Post by Tripp_ » Wed Nov 28, 2018 2:00 am

Questions about grass in fs19
In fs17 I read that it didn't matter what stage (or color of orange) you harvested your crops, you'd get the same amount of harvested crop.
But that only grass would yeld more in the final stage.

Is that true in fs19?

And my second question is..
When my grass grows, it always says that it has the frist stage of fertilizer done. Will I get more grass if I actually fertilize the grass to the second stage?
I did it once and the darker blue color showed up on the field but I don't know if I got more grass.

Thanks for any help.

Well if you got the darker blue you got max fertilization so yes you should get more grass.

For all crops but grass, yes... for your first question


For your second, yes. Fertalizing a grass field will improve its yield, they only need it once since they always have stage 1 fert

I always wondered about this in all fs games, but is it worth putting fertilizer on the grass fields? For making hay bales and/or using it for silage.

it is BigC.. not in fs15.. grass wasn't counted as a field.. but they changed that in fs17 and it remains that way in fs19

I fertilized the heck out of my grass fields in FS17 and it made a huge difference.

So I turned a field that I previously used for crops into a grass field. The grass grew and it is now in its second stage of growth and it has weeds in it(100%).I have not fertilized it yet. I tried spraying them with herbicide and it does not kill the weeds. The field right next to it has canola in it and I spray the weeds in it and they die no problem. Am I doing something wrong or is it a glitch?

While it isn’t totally consistent with reality, it is consistent with the game mechanics as I have seen them described. Basically, you can only treat weeds if the crop isn’t mature and ready to harvest.

If you waited until your canola was ready for harvest, the herbicide will have no effect on the yield in the same way the fertilizer wouldn’t help. (Your yield has already been determined since the crop is mature.) I believe grass is similar, though you can probably treat weeds until the final growth stage is reached.

Grass is bugged on PC atm, it won't grow past the first stage of harvest which really hurts its yield. But not sure if it is due to that causing the yield to be to low for the weeds to affect it or weeds not affecting grass at all, since they are really grass themselves anyway... But I cain't tell a difference in yield when weeds are there or not.

In 17 you could just use a weeder for all stages of fertilisation (on grass) so for costs you were only looking at running costs for the tractor and weeder, and maybe wages for a worker. And the yield did make it worth it. Not sure if anything has changed in 19 on that.

I dont think weed has anything to do in this case. I believe it's either bugged or intentional. Even the grass which is not a "field", I mean original Giants grass around fields, roads etc. won't grow past stage one. It doesn't matter if you cut it or simply drive a tractor and destroy the grass. Those patches of immature grass will be present no matter how much days have passed.
