FS19 – NEW CROPS & WEED CONTROL
Welcome back to the devblogs for Farming Simulator 19. Today we’ll be discussing new crops unique to Farming Simulator 19, as well as the new weed control system, and any new vehicles that are involved in those processes.
Two new crops come to the fields of Farming Simulator 19. The first is oats. While oats are not dissimilar to other cereals in how they are grown, using normal processes and combine harvesters, they have one unique property – they are used to feed your new, rideable horses. Those of you keen on rearing animals as part of your farm will need to set space aside for oat harvests.
Cotton is the second new crop, and has its own special harvester – the Case IH Module Express 635. Once collected, the 635 creates a large bale of cotton that can be transported on special trailers. The Lizard-brand trailers come in two sizes, allowing for transport of one or two bales at once. This makes cotton a significant investment in resources, but with the rewards to match.
