FarmVille Tips Mistakes To Avoid Now!


I have to confess to being crazy in love with playing FarmVille. I was a big Mafia Wars fan and kept noticing posts about this farm game. Eventually I clicked on one of the links that one of my top mafia family had posted on FaceBook. Really, if they were playing then I felt it was about time I had a look.

To be honest I was not looking for another game to play – I just wanted to see what all the fuss was about. Umm, did not take me long to get into it and now I love trying to build up my farm.

Getting the hang of life in FarmVille is not all that complicated. You just harvest crops, plant a new batch, and buy a variety of items and buildings at the market. You want to pretty up your patch of land and farm. Making progress in FarmVille is not very hard, but there are some definitely some mistakes you should try to avoid like the plague.

Plowing your fields so you can grow your seeds

You already know that to make as much money as possible off your farm, you will need to clear a significant amount of land for crops. This is definitely the way to go, but you do have to be very smart about the way you do it. It costs lots of farm money to plow land as well as to buy the seeds to plant on it. If you use up all your money plowing extra land, you will have none left for buying the seeds. If you can’t plant crops, you won’t be able to make more money.

That is why it is important to make sure you can make use of all your available land before you start clearing more. Do not get plow happy! If you plant on all of the plowed plots of land you already have first, you will have a much better idea of how many more you will be able to afford to clear and plant on this time around. That way, you will get the most out of all of your available plots of land and be able to clear even more when it comes time for your next harvest.

Time Your Harvests – Do Not Leave Your Crops Alone

It is very tempting to plant a particular type of crop that offers a good return on your investment. You will not get that return, though, if you cannot get back in time to harvest your crops before they wither. When you are deciding what and when to plant, you have to consider your own schedule so that you can be sure you will be able to get back to your farm in time.

Now remember that crops mature at different rates. They also wither at different rates. For example, a crop that takes 4 hours to mature will wither after 8 hours. A crop that takes 2 days to mature, however, will not wither for 4 days. If you think you will not be able to get back to your farm before a certain kind of crop withers, you should not plant it. This can be hard because the benefits of some short-term crops can be tempting. However, just remember, if your crops wither before you can harvest them, you do not get anything out of that harvest at all.

It is natural to want to advance quickly and make more money, but you have to be realistic about how much time you have to devote to your farm. Getting overambitious will usually backfire on you. If you plan you harvesting cycles right and make sure to only clear as much land as you can make use of at any given time, though, you’ll be well on your way to success in FarmVille.
