💫 Summary
In this video, the content creator tests which crop is the most profitable in Farming Simulator 22. They consider factors such as seed cost, planter and harvester width, growth time, and yield. While sugar beets come out on top, other crops like potatoes and soybeans are also profitable options.
✨ Highlights📊 Transcript
The video is about testing different crops in Farming Simulator 22 to determine the most profitable one.
The field used for testing is 100% fertilized.
Mulching and rolling are not done, but other maintenance tasks are performed.
Testing will also include olives and grapes, which might be trickier to evaluate.
The video discusses the advantages and disadvantages of different crops in terms of equipment requirements, growth time, and seed cost, to determine the most profitable crop.
The video will document the smallest and largest width for planters and harvesters.
It will consider the growth time and seed cost for each crop.
The video will not include expenses such as fertilizer costs and seed cost.
The video discusses the yield and prices of different crops in Farming Simulator 22.
Wheat has a yield of 797 liters and has a separate straw yield.
The average price for straw is 71.12, with a good price and best price listed.
The video provides accurate prices obtained from the game's XML file.
Information is also given about planter and harvester widths, as well as grow time for crops.
Sugar cane is a profitable crop in Farming Simulator 22 due to the ability to make sugar and the lack of replanting required.
Sugar cane does not need to be replanted, unlike grapes and olives.
There is a high upfront cost for planting grapes and olives due to the need to place vineyards.
The seed price for sugar cane is low, but using regular seed increases the seeding costs significantly.
Olives and grapes do not have a specific harvester width, but potatoes have a description that needs to be estimated.
00:10welcome everyone farmer cop here this is
00:12going to be my test video to see which
00:14crop or which uh thing you can grow in
00:16farming similar 22 is going to be the
00:17most profitable for you
00:19so i'm going to talk about kind of the
00:21process i'm going to go through the test
00:23with this and i'm also going to talk
00:25about um
00:26what data points i'm going to kind of
00:28gather with this so first things first
00:30as far as the field goes it's going to
00:32be 100 fertilized every time i have the
00:34game saved right we're at right now this
00:36is the field size right here just a
00:38little field it'll make my life a little
00:39bit easier and the point is to see what
00:42our yield is per area that's the same so
00:45as long as we're using the same area for
00:46every crop it'll be fine so this field
00:48is fully fertilized does not need pong
00:50does not need lime we also have all that
00:52turned off
00:53if we go into here we have all of this
00:55oh we should there we go turn it all off
00:57while we're in here there we go save
00:58that so hopefully that setting stays
01:00there so we have this all turned off
01:02intentionally we're not running seasons
01:04intentionally because it won't change
01:06the yield
01:07because if you understand from my video
01:09about um
01:11taking a look at the
01:13improving the yield we know that if we
01:14have those strings turned off that we
01:16get the bonus anyways on the field so
01:18the only things we're not gonna be doing
01:19is mulching and rolling essentially
01:20we're gonna do everything else to keep
01:21this field um
01:23in tip-top shape for all of our crops
01:25but as long as it's the same for all it
01:27should be just fine so um yeah now the
01:30tricky ones to test are going to be
01:31olives and grapes but we'll we'll do
01:34what we can to test those and i'll bring
01:35you guys back in when we're putting
01:36those down on the field but uh yeah so
01:38what data points are we going to gather
01:40here so
01:41we're going to see when we're planting
01:42it how much the seed cost is so what i'm
01:45going to do is i'm going to go into the
01:46store here i'm going to here go into the
01:48store look at whatever as far as
01:50purchasing seeds in here goes i'm going
01:51to find out which one of these is the
01:53cheapest per thousand liters
01:54and then we're going to take however
01:56many seeds we end up using in the tank
01:57when we plant the crop we're going to
01:59see how many seeds we use and then we're
02:01going to multiply how many seeds we use
02:02by the cost per thousand liters to get
02:04our seed cost so that's how seed cost is
02:05going to be calculated i will document
02:08how much seed is used as well so you can
02:10take a look at that as well
02:12i'm also going to document the growth in
02:13months we already know that actually so
02:14i'm just going to document that as far
02:16as it'll be in the chart that i'm going
02:17to show you guys at the end
02:19i'm going to document the yield when we
02:21do wheat barley and oats i'm also going
02:23to document the yield of the straw you
02:25get off the field and include that
02:26inside of our calculations then i'm
02:29going to document the low price the high
02:30price and an average price i'm also
02:32going to document the how much we would
02:34make if we sold it at the low price the
02:35high price the average price
02:37now the big thing is as far as like cost
02:42run equipment how much of the
02:43equipment's gonna cost because some
02:44people say well yeah sugar cane you get
02:45more but it takes way more time and
02:46costs a lot of money that is true i
02:48can't there's so many different
02:50possibilities or ways to do most of
02:52these crops that i can't possibly
02:55every single variation of equipment that
02:57you can do and have a monetary figure on
02:59that so i'm gonna make some notes here
03:02um as we go through i'm going to make
03:03some notes on my chart to kind of talk
03:05about some of the basically the
03:06advantages and disadvantages though you
03:08might make more money per area on a
03:09specific crop it might have some
03:11fallbacks or some disadvantages to doing
03:13that crop type so for example
03:15i'm going to document in my chart what
03:17the smallest planter is so what the
03:19minimum width is
03:21that you can plant because obviously if
03:22you have a wider planter it's faster i'm
03:24also going to talk about the largest
03:25planter with because obviously something
03:26like sugar cane the largest planter i
03:27think is 2 meters so just like that to
03:29note that and then i'm going to document
03:32the smallest width for a harvester and
03:34the largest width for a harvester um and
03:36again i'm not going to use any mods
03:37we're only going to use base game
03:38equipment here because i can't i can't
03:39get too far down into the weeds
03:41so i'll document that stuff to let you
03:42guys kind of think if it's really worth
03:44in addition to considering the growth in
03:46months um or days if you have one day
03:48month set um and the seed cost um we'll
03:50kind of let you guys determine what you
03:52guys think is the most profitable cop
03:53crop but i will have a distinctive
03:55winner at the very end that will show
03:57that okay yeah you're gonna get more if
03:59you do
04:00you know a harvest off of this field
04:03or a specific area you're going to get
04:04more money from doing a specific crop
04:05type but it's not going to obviously
04:06factor in all of the expenses and my
04:09prices as far as how much you get for
04:10selling them i'm not going to include
04:11the seed cost you also subtract that out
04:13in order to get the answer there but and
04:15now fertilizer costs i'm not going to
04:16include that because theoretically
04:17speaking to get two fertilizer states
04:19the cost is going to be the same for all
04:20crops so if we just don't count that
04:21it's not going to matter because it'll
04:22be the same increasing cost
04:24for every crop type so be the same
04:25deficit to every crop type if that makes
04:27sense i will put this all on the chart
04:29at the very end i will also um i think
04:31it's a google doc chart or it's a
04:34a google sheet
04:36what i will probably do is uh i'll
04:38probably leave a link down below in the
04:40description so you guys can access a
04:41view-only copy of it that'll probably be
04:43what i will do but yeah so i'm going to
04:44go ahead and start just chipping away
04:46documenting all of this
04:48i will get a loading wagon over here to
04:49pick up straw
04:50before we get started here or before we
04:52get the wheat ready to harvest but uh
04:54yeah we're going to start with wheat so
04:55as far as the crops we're going to do i
04:56should mention that as well we're going
04:57to do wheat barley oats sorghum soy
05:00canola sunflower corn sugar beets
05:02potatoes sugar cane cotton olives and
05:04grapes those are all the very basic
05:06types i'm not going to cover grass and
05:08in this video i'm not gonna yep so i'm
05:10not gonna cover grass hay and silage
05:11basically um though i know you can make
05:12some good money off of salvage i'm not
05:14gonna cover that in this video um as far
05:16as the test goes and then i'm also not
05:18gonna cover poplars because poplars are
05:19gonna get wood chips off of um we're not
05:21gonna talk about those i know you could
05:22get obviously yield and whatnot and you
05:24get money from that but i'm not going to
05:25cover poplar's forestry types of stuff
05:27um in this video we're just going to
05:29talk about those main crop types there
05:30that i just listed off um so yeah we'll
05:32go ahead and get started i'll bring you
05:33guys back in when we're getting close to
05:34wrapping up so basically when we're
05:36getting ready to do the olives and
05:37grapes test because we're gonna have to
05:38change some things up to do those so i
05:39will see you guys here in just a little
05:42all right so we are most of the way
05:44through the tests um
05:46the results are interesting we'll go
05:48over them after we finish our grapes and
05:49olives test here in a second but uh wow
05:52they're not what i was expecting
05:54that's all i'll say about that okay so
05:56here's what i'm thinking as far as
05:57placing our
06:00orchards we'll start with grapes again
06:03so i want to do obviously this whole
06:04field but i won't they're a little wide
06:08so once we get the first one placed
06:10it'll actually be pretty easy since they
06:11snap together now but i'm thinking
06:13something like along
06:16oh i'm in the way go figure let me get
06:18out of the way okay go back into here
06:21production orchards
06:25because i know they hang out hang over a
06:27little bit so i'm
06:29grab that
06:30thinking if we go rick right there
06:36move ourselves along here
06:44that looks pretty darn straight
06:47okay yep so just like that
06:49and then i'll just keep working my way
06:52until i fill up all the all the space
06:54here and then i will make sure that
06:56they're fully yielded which actually i
06:58don't know how that's gonna work as far
07:00are they gonna still have their full
07:02yield okay yeah they're still fully
07:04fertilized so everything should be good
07:05and if you walk up to them
07:07yeah see plus 93 percent or 96 yeah it's
07:09there it is 96.98 that's like right
07:11where it's been for all the other crops
07:13right there so perfect they have that
07:14yield bonus potential we will just get
07:16them placed uh let them grow and then i
07:19will harvest them and then we will
07:20calculate that into what we got going on
07:22so okay i will keep working on that
07:24that's basically what i'm gonna do for
07:25the grapes and olives i'll do that and
07:26then i have this obviously saved right
07:28here or not here but before i placed
07:30anything or drove anything over here so
07:31i'll just load back in without saving
07:33and then we'll keep going from there so
07:34i will keep working on that i'll see you
07:36guys here in just a few minutes and
07:37we'll go over the results
07:39all right ladies and gentlemen it is
07:40time to look at the results now we will
07:42note a few things here um there are some
07:44things that i tried to i did actually
07:45end up accounting for the seed cost i
07:47did subtract the seed cost off um
07:50there's a few other notes that we'll
07:51make here now
07:53i think that giants redid the crops
07:57thinking about the production chains i
08:00think they did that because i think some
08:01of these crops you will make a lot more
08:03if you actually put them through a
08:04production chain compared to what
08:05they're at here because some of them i
08:07think the winner is
08:11just odd uh some of the winners are just
08:13odd on here and some of the different
08:15values are just odd uh so yeah we'll go
08:17ahead and take a look at i'm going to
08:18move us over to a spreadsheet and we'll
08:19take a look at it from there so looking
08:21at this this is the spreadsheet which i
08:23will leave links so you guys have access
08:24to this so if we go starting with uh
08:26wheat here again it's kind of hard let
08:28me actually zoom
08:30there we go so we have the whole
08:31spreadsheet on here at once um so feel
08:33free to zoom or pause and read whatever
08:35you need to or maybe down below if you
08:37open it up so you can look at it with me
08:39and you should be able to download it so
08:40you can edit your own values in here so
08:43we'll just run through wheat here so
08:44wheat and then the straw for wheat
08:46that's what's here um that's only again
08:48for the barley wheat oats but wheat the
08:50yield is 797 liters that's their straw
08:53yield which is different than the other
08:54two crops that's the average price for
08:56straw a good price for straw and the
08:58best price for straw now i decided to
09:00change to these values because there's
09:02actually a really good article on it and
09:03let's be honest you're never gonna sell
09:04when the the price is super low and if
09:06you are well all you have to do this is
09:08all there's calculations in here so this
09:10says 600 or this says 74 right now if i
09:12change this to 100 well an update you
09:15can see it updates everything further
09:16down but it's actually just 74 so we'll
09:17leave it there for now so it'll update
09:19the prices in here so these are all
09:21calculated out so and where i got these
09:22prices there's a link down below in the
09:25description to a steam article and
09:27actually let me get those moved to
09:29inside they just bother me uh there's a
09:30steam article that will explain how they
09:33found all of this stuff in the xml so
09:35it's from the xml the game not from me
09:36studying the game or anything like that
09:38so these prices should be extremely
09:39accurate um okay so
09:417997 liters
09:44average price good price best price so
09:46average 71 12.99 now that is including
09:49straw this is if you sell without starch
09:51i know it's misleading i should have
09:52switched those with the two i should
09:53have switched four and five there but
09:55the higher price there for that is with
09:56straw being sell that's without straw
09:58being sold then we have the good or good
10:00price and best price and then over here
10:02we have the smallest planter width base
10:04game equipment only largest planter
10:06width the smallest plant or smallest
10:08harvester width base game only again
10:10largest harvester width it's how many
10:12grow time in months so if you have your
10:14if you have seasons turned off
10:16it'll be and you set it to one day
10:17months that'll be seven days then that's
10:19the seed cost because that's the amount
10:20of seeds used and all of these here all
10:23the way down to here we'll multiply by
10:24certain amounts over here uh so seed
10:26price 800 if it's a crop that needs
10:28regular seed it will multiply it by it
10:30will divide this by a thousand to get
10:31how many you know because that's the
10:32price per thousand liters so if you
10:34wanted to change that to well maybe you
10:35get seeds cheaper it'll go through and
10:37calculate it all and subtract different
10:39prices in here but we're gonna leave it
10:40at 800 for now because that's basically
10:42the store price so
10:44yeah so has all that stuff in there um
10:46now let's start talking about some
10:48different stuff different advantages
10:49disadvantages to different things so if
10:51we look over here actually at the sale
10:53average um the winner
10:55let's see i think down here is yeah
10:57right here 11 grand is gonna be sugar
11:00beets of all things sugar beets followed
11:02by potatoes close second sugar beets and
11:04potatoes were the winners um i think in
11:06every category here um then past that
11:10the next one up on the list is actually
11:12gonna be
11:13cotton which is not not really
11:15surprising to be fair but cotton's going
11:17to be next on that list and then
11:19after cotton we actually have olives and
11:21then we're going to hit sugar cane
11:24and then grapes and then past that we're
11:26going to start hitting all of our crops
11:27up here so out of like the basic the
11:29more basic crop types um your best is
11:31going to be i believe with soy sauce
11:33pretty high up not quite the winner
11:35though sorghum it looks like is the
11:36winner here but then if you go to better
11:38prices soy you can get a better price
11:40it's always the best in this column um
11:42but yeah always trigger beats one though
11:45very strangely and followed by potatoes
11:46but um you can go through here so the
11:48big change i think is sugar king did not
11:50win out this year so a lot of people
11:51probably never gonna touch it um but
11:54uh to be fair um with sugarcane to note
11:57a couple of things there um you can now
11:59make sugar which i think is gonna be a
12:00lot more profitable for you anyways um
12:02now down here let's talk about a few
12:04things down here in my notes so first
12:05off sugarcane here's the advantage of
12:07sugarcane as well sugarcane does not
12:08have to be replanted so sugar cane
12:10grapes and olives don't need replanting
12:12because you're placing down the uh
12:15you're placing down the vineyards for
12:16the grapes and olives now another thing
12:18to note this is how much it costs for me
12:19to place um the total of 15 rows for
12:21each the grapes and the olives that
12:23obviously is not subtracted out of their
12:24harvest income because that would be it
12:26would be a huge negative but just note
12:27that there's a huge upfront cost for
12:28those now sugar cane this is the seed
12:30price i calculated because you can buy
12:32sugar cane seeds in the store at that
12:34rate potatoes i used the uh the price
12:37average for potatoes excuse me um for
12:40their seed price because well after you
12:42do your first round of potatoes um you
12:44will be able to use that so um but even
12:46then even with sugar cane being that low
12:48price you can see sugarcane's still at
12:501051 to plant now if you use regular
12:52seed to plant sugar cane your seeding
12:54costs just went up to 4 400 bucks you
12:55can see over there so um just be aware
12:57of that but yeah so that's a couple
12:58notes um there obviously there's no
13:00plant width for um olives and grapes um
13:03if we go over to olives and grapes it's
13:05not really harvester width it's just one
13:07row so i put a asterisk next to the one
13:08there and for potatoes here there's an
13:10asterisk next to this because it doesn't
13:12really give you a width that it tells
13:14you at least for the big harvester
13:16doesn't give you width as least in the
13:18description so i just estimated that
13:19three and called it good there but
13:21otherwise everything else in here should
13:22be fairly accurate good to go for us so
13:24um at the end of the day sugar beets one
13:27but if you're not doing sugar beets and
13:28you're doing a basic as far as like
13:30basic grain crop types uh soybeans gonna
13:32be your winner just barely oats
13:34potentially could get up there that's
13:35your best price though uh but if we go
13:37down here to sell good you're still just
13:39up ahead with uh soy so soy's good oats
13:42are doing a lot better now well that's
13:44actually also to include selling the
13:45straw if you don't sell the straw you're
13:46not to deal with straw then you have to
13:48deal with this price down here
13:49so past that soy is actually a really
13:51good container followed by it looks like
13:53corn did decent uh sunflower decent but
13:57yeah there's there's a lot of values in
13:58here um and again you can adjust all the
14:00prices in here and everything should
14:01calculate out if you download your own
14:02copy of this
14:04and this is all a normal economy by the
14:05way so if you plan a different economy
14:07well that steam article that's linked
14:08down below you can enter your own prices
14:10in here as far as over here and it'll
14:12it'll give you a more updated set for
14:13what you're looking at in your game and
14:15what prices to look for so there you
14:17guys go um if you guys enjoyed this
