@gordon861: The two last crops planted are stored and there are ingame ways to help players remember what they have done and also to plan ahead.

@gilroy222: We can get ahead of ourselves as this particular feature is already up and running :D

Sounds nice.
As a RL farmer, I'm corious if you're gone judge the crops in rotation ( difficult without making it too complex.) or if its gone be a handicap, to plant a crop that has been on the field in the last two years.

Are we going to have an impact on weed management?
Will Covercrops finally get more important?

Anyway, Im looking forward to it :)

This is Awesome!! I always have implemented crop rotation on my fields in Farm Sim, and just keep track of it on a spreadsheet I created with loads of other data. But to have it actually affect the yields is awesome. Thanks guys!!

Crops in rotation are taken into account. There are so far two effects of crop rotation.
1) Crop history will have a yield effect when harvesting the current crop. The yield multiplier is shown in an ingame crop rotation planner
2) When planting a crop where the last crop was beneficial you will get one fertilization level for "free"

This all means different preceeding crops have different effect. The crop types in the game are categorised (e.g. cereals, legumes, oilseeds etc). So it is for instance beneficial to have a oilseed crop (e.g. canola) before a cereal crop (e.g. wheat). Whilst it is not good to have potatoes before wheat.

In addition every crop has different characteristics to how often it should planted. Some crops are better suited for monoculture (meaning same crop every year) than others. For instance of the cereals, corn is better to grow several years in a row than wheat.

While this might all sound a bit complex, the ingame crop rotation planner will make it easy to to understand how to set up beneficial rotations.

Oilseed radish is currently not part of the rotations, but vanilla mechanics of applying one fertilization level when cultivating radish still applies.

Wow, these new Seasons features truly sound incredible! Nothing against Giants at all, but in light of these improvements it almost makes the core game feel incomplete.

Much respect to everyone who is making this happen.
