A crop plot takes 1 real-world hour to produce a crop, which yields 2-5 of whatever you originally planted.

How to Farm

Once you’ve crafted a Crop Plot, deploy it anywhere you like (for now, plants don’t seem to need light to grow). Then, press [F] to open the Crop Plot’s inventory, and then drag whatever plant you want to grow into the “Seed” section of the Crop Plot’s inventory.

1 hour real time per crop. Yields between 2 and 5 per 1 plant.

Why is this not worth it? You get more yield than finding them.Easy minimum duplicate your stash

Mainly because of decomposition timers. If one spoils before you check it you can literally roll all 2s and one spoiled means no gain. You have to focus it kinda hard to guarantee profit. No hunting or mining and getting distracted.

Knowing how long it takes IRL you can plan your trips away from home around being back in time. It’s especially useful if you are building in the desert since you can bring in some crops and then keep growing them. The key is having a lot of crops going at once. I normally have 20-30 crops growing at once.

Honestly the investment to get crop plots to not grow food and reduce time to grow takes 13 talent points. If you’re in a group then that isn’t much, but solo or with few players it can be rather harmful. I tried it and now I’m not only squishy, but I never use it in regular gameplay, only on farming only missions. I’d have rather taken talents that let me take damage without being so squishy or to simply carry more. The talent tree has too much requirement to be a GOOD farmer in small scale team logic is all.
