Guide for Farming Simulator 19 – Start From Scratch – Felsbrunn – Optimal Fields
When playing Start From Scratch, you only have $500,000 to begin. With even the cheapest field on the map running at $107,496, it’s obviously important to pick a good field to start with.
First, we have to determine the equipment costs. After testing, I’ve determined that the harvesting 1 field will not pay the lease cost on equipment to buy our equipment instead of leasing.
Italicized items are for grain harvest, underlined for corn/sunflower, and bold are for baling. The normal text indicates it is used for either application.
|Finz Bizon Super Z056||Harvester||$84,000|
|New Holland TX 32||Harvester W/Chaff||$100,000|
|Finz Zo56H||Grain Harvest Head||$27,000|
|Cappello Quasar F4||Corn/Sunflower Harvest Head||$17,000|
|New Holland Tx 32 Header||Grain Harvest Head W/Chaff||$17,000|
|Fortschritt HW 80||Trailer (10,750L)||$8,500|
|Rau Polymag 300||Cultivator||$7,000|
|Amazone D8 30||Grain Seeder||$13,000|
|Amazone ED 3000-C||Corn/Sunflower Planter||$27,000|
|New Holland RollBelt 150||Baler||$49,000|
|Fliegl Schmetterling||Bale Carrier||$2,000|
|TOTAL COST GRAIN||$199,400||$300,600 remaining|
|TOTAL COST of CORN/SUNFLOWER||$203,400||$296,600 remaining|
|TOTAL COST BALING||$271,400||$228,600 remaining|
I picked the Fortschritt HW 80 over the Strautman SEK 802, even though it’s slightly more expensive because it has more than twice the carrying capacity as the base model SEK 802. To get the same equivalent capacity in the SEK 802 would cost $11,000 (halfway between the 8k and 12k capacities)
In case you’re wondering why potatoes, beets, and cotton are not on the list, it’s because the starting equipment for those requires more than $500,000.
So, after buying your equipment, you will have either $300,600 or $296,600 remaining. This eliminates nearly half of the fields as options. Of the remaining, several have been planted with potatoes, beets, cotton, or grass.
Out of 33 fields, only 14 (2,5,11,15,17,18,21,25,26,27,28,31,32,33) are actually available options for your first field.
- Field 17 is the largest with 7.4 acres. It may seem like a good deal, at only $261,840 or $35,383/acre. The first harvest is Soybean, at an average of $20,579. However, being unable to afford baling equipment, your best 2nd harvest would be Canola for $20,690.
- Field 11 is the second-largest field, with 5.18 acres at $192,648. $37,190 per acre. The first harvest would be Wheat with an average of $24,294. 2nd harvest would rerun wheat for another $24,294. This is the best deal out of all the options.
- Field 18 is the third option. 4.89 Acres for $180,192, $36,849 per acre. The first harvest of Corn would net $13,647. The best 2nd harvest would be Sunflower, for average $13,740.
- The final option is buying Fields Fields 26 and 28, 4.31 combined Acres for a total field cost of $233,016. $59,377/Acre. 1st harvest of Sunflower and Corn would bring in $12,083, while the best 2nd harvest would be Sunflower with an average of $12,111.
