Hello FarmVille fan! Since you’re reading this, I assume that you’re dead serious about improving your FarmVille skills and are looking to improve your performance. That is great, and I am sure that you’re on the right track by reading this article.
I’ve heard people say that FarmVille is a simple game to play, and my answer is ‘yes’, but only at the beginner level. However, if you want to join the ranks of the big boys and girls, then it’s not very simple at all. You will need all the insights, tips, tricks, techniques and secrets that you can muster in order to excel at the FarmVille game.
I have written down the following FarmVille secrets that you should start with. I have much more. If you like the following secrets, then I invite you to visit my FarmVille website by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.
FarmVille Secret Number 1: Identify and Get the Best FarmVille Crops
You can get, plant and harvest many crops in FarmVille. However, not every crop is the same. To get the best bang for your buck, you need to know which crops are the best and how to get them. To determine which crops are the best, you have to keep the following parameters:
The seed cost of the FarmVille crop (e.g. 85 coins for grapes vs 220 coins for asparagus)
The selling price (e.g. 381 coins for peas vs 173 coins for tomatoes)
The time it takes for the crop to be ready (from seeding time to harvest time, e.g. 1 hour for grapes, vs 16 hours for asparagus)
The XP per crop (e.g. 1 XP for tomatoes and sugar canes, 2 XP for asparagus and grapes, and 3 XP for peas)
After taking all these factors into consideration, we calculated that you get the most bang for your buck for crops in the following order (best to least profit):
Keep in mind that you may need to pay for plowing your crops, so your profit will go down for crops that grow faster such as grapes and peas, as compared to slower growing crops like asparagus.
Also, some crops cannot be grown until you reach at least Level 19 in FarmVille. Also, days are only twenty three hours long in FarmVille, so your day will not exactly correspond to the FarmVille day. You have to keep this in mind to judge exactly when you need to be online and when you can be able to plow new spaces to set up new plots.
FarmVille Secret Number 2: Identify and Get the Best FarmVille Trees
Trees take a long time between planting and harvest time, so you will not earn much by growing them. However, they have a particular advantage that smaller crops don’t have: they do not wither. Also, they do not need plowing, and do not need replanting.
Olive trees, date trees, banana trees and pomegranate trees can be acquired as a gift, while it costs 27 FarmVille cash to plant an Acai tree. The income varies, with 69 coins for date trees versus 158 coins for Acai trees. Also, it only takes 2 days to harvest acai berry versus 5 days for pomegranates.
FarmVille Secret Number 3: Hitting the Ground Running in FarmVille
A lot of players new to FarmVille find it very difficult to get started. They find FarmVille daunting because it takes money, time and a lot of concentration to get started in FarmVille. Using the following trick it should be easier to start so that you can start growing crops fast and move along faster in FarmVille.
The first thing you should ask yourself is how often do you log into the game, and for how long. These are completely different, and both of these aspects will help decide which crops you should grow and what techniques you should use.
When you start playing FarmVille, you are assigned 6 square plots, two that are half grown, and two with eggplants and strawberries. You are also given 200 coins. After you harvest the first crops, you will end up with 323 coins.
This trick will help you swap coins for XP so you’ll not have any leftover land, and will also help those who are at a high level but don’t have enough plots to work with.
Start with 10 or 11 plots of land that are either plowed or fallow. Whatever you do, make sure you start with this amount of land.
Calculate how much money you will need to plant whatever you want to harvest (see secrets one and two).
Plow all your 10 or 11 plots – You will need exactly 150 coins to plow the land.
Buy SOYBEANS to plant and plant them in all the 10 plots. You will need another 150 coins to plant the soybeans.
By just planting and plowing, you just earned 30 points.
After planting the soybeans, delete the plots with your delete tool.
Now you will be able to start all over again.
Repeat this all over again multiple times.
This allows you to get nearly unlimited XP for the cost of only 10 coins per XP while not doing anything on your farm.
After repeating this multiple times, plant something of actual value (see secrets one and two above), and shut down your computer
The next day, you can harvest this crop to get more coins and enough to continue using this XP trick.
Good luck using these FarmVille secrets.
