Farm Configuration

By default, the Farm defaults to a Managed Arboretum on all four sides.
However, you can change this behaviour if you have a Soldering Iron and some Electron Tubes.

Types of Farms

There are two main types of farm: Managed and Manual.

The different types of farms can be set using Circuit Boards and a Soldering Iron. The East and West sections of the farm includes the corner farmlands.

Managed Farms

Managed Farms not only plant and harvest crops, but they will also set the necessary soil for the crops to grow.

By setting your Soldering Iron to Managed Farms, you can have the following:

Circuit Material Soil Base Water Consumption Fertilizer Consumption Germlings Harvest
Arboretum Copper Electron Tube Dirt1) 10 mB 30 mU Saplings Wood, Saplings, Apples
Peat Bog Tin Electron Tube Bog Earth 20 mB 10 mU None Peat, Dirt
Crop Farm Bronze Electron Tube Dirt 20 mB 10 mU Seeds Wheat
Vegetable Farm Iron Electron Tube Dirt 20 mB 10 mU Carrots, Potatoes Carrots, Potatoes
Infernal Farm Blazing Electron Tube Soul Sand None 20 mU Nether Wart Nether Wart (Grown)
Shroom Farm Apatine Electron Tube Mycelium 80 mB 20 mU Mushrooms Large mushrooms

Manual Farms

Manual Farms, unlike Managed Farms, will not set the soil for the crops to grow or place the initial seeds or saplings, but it will replant and harvest the crops/trees in its operation radius. Hint: This can be used to your advantage!

By setting your Soldering Iron to Manual Farms, you can have the following:

Circuit Ingredient Soil Base Water Consumption Fertilizer Consumption Germlings Harvest Notes
Orchard Copper Electron Tube Dirt 40 mB 10 mU Trees (grown) Any fruits 2)3)
Peat Bog Tin Electron Tube Bog Earth 20 mB 10 mU None Peat, Dirt
Crop Farm Bronze Electron Tube Dirt 20 mB 10 mU Seeds Wheat
Vegetable Farm Iron Electron Tube Dirt 20 mB 10 mU Carrots, Potatoes Carrots, Potatoes
Succulent Farm Golden Electron Tube Sand 1 mB 10 mU Cactus Cactus (3-tall)
Reed Farm Diamantine Electron Tube Sand/Dirt 20 mB 10 mU Sugar Canes Sugar Canes (3-tall)
Rubber Plantation Rubberised Electron Tube Dirt 5 mB 10 mU Rubber Saplings Sticky Resin 4) 5)
Gourd Farm Obsidian Electron Tube Dirt 40 mB 10 mU Pumpkin/Melon Seeds Pumpkins, Melons
Cocoa Plantation Lapis Electron Tube Jungle Wood 20 mB 120 mU Cocoa Beans Cocoa Plants

Farm Orientation

The order of the Electron Tubes on the Circuit Board determines the orientation for each section on the Farm. The orientation is as follows:

Left: Soldering Iron GUI.
Right: Farm GUI.

This orientation is important, because the size of the sections varies with the placing on the farm, especially in farm setups that are not square (for example, a 3×5 setup).
The N, S, W and E represent, respectively, North, South, West and East.

1) Prior to 2.0.0.4, Humus was required instead of dirt
2) , 4) Will not harvest or replant trees.
3) Requires tree which bares fruit, vanilla oak trees are not fruit trees
5) Only available with IC2 installed.
