Hourly Profit for Crops

There are many ways in which you can use crops once they have been harvested, using Machines, Animals, or the Kitchen. However, if you choose to you can simply plant a crop, wait for it to grow, harvest it, and then sell it. There is an hourly profit for each crop, which is not based on simply a cost versus resale value, but also taking into account the time it takes for each crop to grow. This is an important factor at times.

For example, Pasture sells for only a 2 coin profit. Doesn’t seem like much right? But it also only takes 1 hour to grow. Therefore the hourly profit for Pasture is 2 coins.

Tomato looks good at first glance – a 17 coin profit! But, it takes 16 hours to grow! That’s barely 1 coin profit per hour. The actual hourly profit for Tomato is 1.06 coins, almost half as much as Pasture.

Put into practice –

A/ You plant 1 plot of Tomato. This costs you 20 coins. In 16 hours you harvest it then sell it, for 37 coins. This gives you a profit of 17 coins for 16 hours of time.

B/ You plant 1 plot of Pasture. In 1 hour you harvest it and plant another Pasture, repeating the same process every hour for 16 hours. Total spent for 16 crops of Pasture is 240 coins. You sell 16 crops of Pasture for 272 coins. Total profit is 32 coins for 16 hours of time.

In the same plot, in the 16 hours you would have waited for the Tomato to ripen, you could have planted and harvested 16 Pasture – which would be a total profit of 32 coins for 16 hours of time. This is a profit of 15 more coins than Tomato, for the same amount of time.

It is doubtful that you will be working with only one plot though, you may be planting and harvesting on 50 plots of land, or even a larger number. So the total profit would be much more substantial than just 32 coins.

50 plots of land, planted with Tomato, would cost 1000. After 16 hours you could harvest those 50 Tomato and sell them for 1850. Total profit after 16 hours would be 850.

50 plots of land, planted with Pasture, would cost 750. After 1 hour you can harvest and then sell them for a total of 850, which is a profit of 100 coins for 1 hour of work. If you repeat this process every hour, for 16 hours, you’ve made a total profit of 1600! This is almost double the profit you could make from planting Tomato and waiting for it to grow.

Of course, this does not take into account the fact that you would have to diligently check on your farm every hour for 16 hours, but it is completely up to the individual as far as how often they plan on tending to their farm.

Listed below are all the crops in order of most profitable per hour, based on simply planting, harvesting, and selling, starting with the highest profit per hour. This practice of planting, harvesting, and selling is, however, the least profitable thing you can do. There are so many products you can turn these crops into that will give you an even higher hourly profit, which I will also go into more detail about, and give you the numbers for those too. These numbers are just here for anyone interested.

Crops with the same hourly profit are listed in order of growing time, starting with the quickest.
