Tell me about your rotations :)

Post by Paco_86 » Mon Mar 01, 2021 6:08 pm

Hello everyone! If you play with seasons, what kind of rotations do you have? Tell me about that, because for me is like a headache.

I run a dairy farm, so I rotate a lot between corn, grass, corn, grass haha. I also have one field set aside for misc crops that are grown in the real life area, I have one field I rotate between sugar beets and cotton. Cereals like wheat, barley, or oats rotate well with soybeans and canola

And potatoes? I think is very complicated to rotate it without a fallow

You aren’t going to get perfect potatoes in game without going fallow but it’s not cost effective to go fallow just for better potatoes in game when you can get like 89% with the right rotation

on my mostly pig farm with seasons

grass/corn -the geo I'm using allows this to double crop so I get two harvest per year off each field

canola/ wheat(barley)

these two rotations gives me a bunch of grass for a few sheep and to make silage for the BGA and enough corn, canola, wheat to feed my ever growing pig operation.

I have one large grass field for hay and usually take some corn for silage. Not much though compared to what's planted.

Hello! Although I have been playing corn for a short time, wheat and soybeans have been the best options for me.

Half of my fields I plant soybeans and the other half is split between corn and cotton. The next season the half that was soybeans gets either planted in corn and cotton, and where the corn and cotton was gets put into soybeans.

Anything to feed the pigs.

Tho when I do potatoes it's only my small field... Otherwise it takes forever to harvest.

I never rotate, its high performance mud + snow tires year round for me. Sometimes I regret that.

i usually drill in same crop in most all fields, with exception of hay. That i split up depending on hay crop type listed. Where i am from all fields are either planted in mountain hay or alfalfa. i rotate thru all listed crops in a map. We all have our individual preferences on crop rotation. All i know for you to do would be to select a 2-5 crops to rotate with, after first rotation decide whether to add more, remain same.
