Farming Simulator 19: Profitability of Crops

This is a guide and tips for Farming Simulator 19.


The prices of crops change dynamically in the game.

Below is a table showing the yields and profitability of different crops in Farming Simulator 19. Note that the prices (based on the highest recorded market prices on medium difficulty) and harvest volume per hectare may contain errors. The harvest height data indicates the highest possible volume, which is obtained from a field of maximum productivity (ploughed, limed, weed-free harvest, after double fertilization).

*The price represents the highest recorded market value of the product (except for \”High Demand\”) on medium difficulty. Purchase prices at low difficulty are 30% higher; at high – 50% lower. All data should be taken as approximate values, acquired by experimentation.

  1. The most profitable crop is corn when converted into chopped straw and sold as silage at the Biogas Plant. However, expensive equipment is required for maximum productivity on large fields.
  2. Sugarcane and sugar beet take second and third place, respectively, due to their high yields that require the use of large and expensive trailers. A good harvester can harvest sugar beet faster than sugarcane, but the latter does not require planting. The choice ultimately rests on the player.

FAQ

1. What are the most profitable crops in Farming Simulator 19?

The most profitable crops in Farming Simulator 19 vary depending on the player\’s location and the current market demand, but generally, the best crops to grow for profit are potatoes, sugar beets, corn, wheat, and soybeans. These crops have the highest yield per hectare and can be sold for a high price at the market. Additionally, players can increase their profits by using fertilizers and pesticides to improve the quality of their crops and by investing in better equipment to speed up the harvesting and transportation process.

2. How can I optimize my crop production for maximum profitability?

To optimize crop production for maximum profitability, players should start by choosing the right crop for their farm and location. It is also important to pay attention to the weather and soil conditions, as well as market demand, to ensure that crops are grown in the most favorable conditions possible. Players should also invest in the latest farming equipment and technology to streamline the planting, harvesting, and transportation process. Finally, players should implement sustainable farming practices, such as crop rotation and soil conservation, to ensure long-term profitability.

3. What are the risks associated with crop farming in Farming Simulator 19?

Like any real-life farming operation, crop farming in Farming Simulator 19 comes with its own set of risks and challenges. Players must be prepared to deal with unpredictable weather conditions, pests and diseases, and market fluctuations that can impact crop prices. Additionally, players must invest in expensive equipment and supplies, which can be a significant financial burden. To minimize these risks, players should carefully plan their crop production and invest in sustainable farming practices that can help reduce the impact of these risks. They should also consider diversifying their crop production to spread their risk across multiple crops and markets.
