Fields are quite simply plots of land that have been set aside for agriculture. Different outdoor crops can be grown on Fields for Food. Fields can only be constructed on fertile soil.

Certain disasters like Nuclear Fallout can completely destroy the harvest and prevent any further farming during the rest event. Fields are also very vulnerable to other forms of damage incurred during disasters.

Small Field grows Food slowly but is the most space-efficient.

Medium Field yields twice as much harvest as a small one, but takes twice the surface area and requires two Colonists to work efficiently.

Large Field produces almost four times the harvest of a Small Field, but takes four times the surface area and requires three Colonists to work efficiently.

Production[edit]

Once a Field is constructed, a Colonist working there will plant the selected seeds, grow the crops and then harvest them once they are grown. You can change the crop type whenever you want, but the changes will only come into effect after the next harvest.

Field production cycle: Cultivation -> Planting Seeds -> Growth -> Harvest -> Repeat
