If you have plant growth set to normal, most crops will be ready to harvest around 24 in-game hours after you plant them. Even if you sleep. So if you go to sleep and they are at growth stage 1 or 2, When you wake they will likely be at growth stage 4 or ready to harvest. It is also possible that weeds could have struck by then. If the crops are still growing spray them. If they are ready to harvest then bad luck.

I usually sleep till around 0600 am. That way, most if not all my crops are still growing, so they can be sprayed for weeds which is my first task of the day. Having time acceleration set to 1x at this point helps. Any faster and the crops could get to be ready for harvest at which point there is nothing can be done about the weeds.

Always put growt so slow before sleep, and save the game first, that way you can exit and try over if you get a lot of weeds, or grow past stage one.. (there isent any crop destruction on the first stage, so you can use the bredal spreader...)

Usually the way I do it is after I sow the feilds I advance time till I get weeds and then spray for them and do my 2nd fertilizer, and then I'll sleep till morning and if their not ready yet I'll advance time till they are.

You can turn the weeds off in settings
