The latest installment of the farming simulation video game series from Giants Software, Farming Simulator 22, is exploding in popularity. The new iteration of the classic farming franchise has already cracked 100,000 concurrent players on Steam, and shows no signs of slowing. But with so much to learn, new farmers might be confused. Our FS22 guides are meant to help with that.
The idea of this game is to make yourself into the best farmer you can, There are multiple steps to this whole process. The buying of a farm plot is just the beginning. After you have your tractor in place, you need to attach a cultivation tool and begin preparing the field itself. The cultivation should be done before each new crop is planted, tilling the old growth back into the soil. This is also a good time to apply fertilizer to your crops before seeding them.
How to cultivate a field in Farming Simulator 22
To cultivate a field in Farming Simulator 22, you require two very crucial pieces of equipment – the tractor and a cultivator. You can find both of these at the in-game store. It’s also possible to buy certain models bundled together. Grab your new tool and fire it up. Drive it to the plot you wish to plow, and drop your tool. Drive in straight lines and cultivate the field. You will know if a field has been cultivated when it has turned from the neat rows into bare brown dirt.
You will need a lot more than just the tractor and this one tool though, you need tools to perform various tasks. You will need to be able to plow and seed the field, as well as to apply nutrients. So if you need to apply lime, or fertilize your fields, this is a great way to make use of some tractor weights as well.
That’s how you can begin growing crops. There are also tons of mods you can install to tweak the game to your liking. Get out there and grow.
