Guide for Farming Simulator 19 – Crops Yields and Prices
NOTE: This guide was last updated over a year ago. There may have been changed in the game updates since that is not reflected below. But it should still provide you with an understanding of the system and a general idea of the prices.
I have collected data on how many liters per acre each crop produced in the base game. This test was done with a 165% yield for all of them.
I have found some data in the game files for the sell prices, and I think it represents the average price for the sell points. You can use this information to make sure you always sell at a good price. Prices are affected by the difficulty level, and it appears to be multiplied respectively by 3x for “New Farmer,” 2x for “Farm Manager,” and also 2x for “Start From Scratch” (Since patch 1.2). However, there are a few exceptions: the Silage, Manure, and the Slurry price at the Biogas Plant, which seems to be “hardcoded” as they are not following the game file settings they aren’t affected by you selling products there.
Data collected and Results
|Crop||Yield (L) per Acre||Price / 1000L (New Farmer)||Price / 1000L (Farm Manager & From Scratch)||Price / Acre (New Farmer)||Price / Acre (Farm Manager & From Scratch)||Notes|
|Wheat||7,118||1,011||674||14,069||9,379||The price of selling straw is included in the total amount|
|Barley||7,630||939||626||14,037||9,358||The price of selling straw is included in the total amount|
|Oat||4,530||1,689||1,126||14,523||9,682||The price of selling straw is included in the total amount|
|Sugar Beet||46,247||366||244||16,926||11,284||Requires special machines and takes longer to harvest|
|Potato||32,763||516||344||16,905||11,270||Requires special machines and takes longer to harvest|
|Cotton||3,969||3,756||2,504||14,908||9,939||Requires cotton harvester and special trailer|
|Sugarcane||72,924||357||238||26,034||17,356||Requires special machines and takes longer to harvest|
|Maize/Silage||51,489||600||360||25,745||25,745||Requires special machines, and the Biogas Plant Land must be purchased.|
|17,382||513||342||8,917||5,944||Prices at the Barn.|
|Manure||600||360||Biogas Plant Land must be purchased.|
|Slurry||479||287||Biogas Plant Land must be purchased.|
To help with waiting for the best prices to sell, here are prices ranges you can expect. Aim for a selling price somewhere between the 75% and Maximum columns.
Conclusion and my final thoughts
In the end, the actual effort, time required, the capital investment needed for the special equipment all play an important role that must be considered. And I think that it is well balanced overall.
Do take the time to collect the straw from your Wheat, Oat, and Barley fields; you can be missing out on about 50% of profit if you don’t collect and sell it!
To sell Silage at the Biogas Plant, you must buy the land first. It can take up to 50,000 Litre of Silage at once and process it continually. You don’t get the money right away; it will pay you at midnight. The price is unaffected by selling at this location.
Because sell prices at the various sell locations will drop after you sell your crops, it’s preferable to farm various crops and only sell them when prices are high or during high demand. A large farm with a single crop type wouldn’t be as profitable because sell prices would be lower often.
