Dawn of Man – Crops

12 March 2019, Tuesday, 10:36:26

Crops

Once you’ve mastered plant domestication your people can eat more regularly and produce food far in excess of what can be gotten through hunting and foraging.

 

 

  • -Cereal crops will also produce straw that can be used in construction and as fodder for any animals you domesticate.

 

  • -Pulses (Legumes) can also be grown and while they do not yield straw (or store as long as grain) they have a different growing season, allowing your farm workers to maximize their yields while balancing their workloads.

 

  • -Pulses (Chickpeas, Lentils, Peas, and Bitter Vetch) also don’t require the extra steps of grinding flour and baking bread that the cereal grains do.

 

  • -One final crop that you will find useful is Flax. Flax is used in the production of Linen which can be turned into stylish light weight summer wear.

 

Note: Fields can be laid out as large as 5×5 but that’s actually a LOT when your population is below 50. Consider smaller fields to start. They can always be deleted and re-established when they are fallow. Too many large fields early on will cause you to have task spikes that will clog your tasks queue.
