Farming

Farming is a skill that allows a player to plant seeds; as well as, growing, and harvesting various types of plants. Things that a player can grow include fruits, herbs, and trees. This skill is beneficial in the fact that it is player based . All of your plots growing plants are only available to the player, preventing any competition for harvesting. All plots are user specifc; thus, every user is guaranteed a plot of farming land without competition.

Other Patches

There are several different patches located throughout Soulsplit that are not mentioned. This is due to the lack of support for such patches, as well as various bugs that players may encounter. Therefore, use of these patches is not recommended. Patches that you may encounter problems with include hops patches, calquat patches, and spirit tree patches.

General Farming

Farming within patches is usually done in the following steps:

  1. Rake the weeds off the patch
  2. Apply (super)compost, if desired
  3. Plant the seed in the patch
  4. Water if necessary
  5. Place weeds in a nearby compost bin if desired

Not all patches need water. Also, compost will provide a greater amount of produce when it is time to harvest. Using supercompost will provide even an even further amount of produce. By placing the weeds in a nearby compost bin, it will not only clear up your inventory space, but provide compost for later use.

Farming Tips

If you're struggling with Farming, some of the following tips may help:

  • When completing Slayer tasks or killing monsters, picking up seeds not found in shops can be beneficial. Trees and fruit trees give large amounts of XP when harvested, so stocking up on these uncommon seeds is highly recommended.
  • Keep the Allotment, Herb, and Flower patches at each of the four main Farming locations planted. If all four locations are constantly planted, you will always have some plants to be harvesting and replanting.
  • Save Reward tokens from voting and use them for their 30 minutes of double XP to double your Farming experience.

For more tips, see Farming Training.

Compost

To make compost, simply add an organic item into the compost bin. Organic items include produce made in Farming, herbs, as well as weeds from raking and clearing a patch. As you add organic items into the compost bin, it will start to fill with green.
Compost bin filling

A compost bin with components that have not been decomposed yet.

Continue emptying organic items into the compost bin until it is filled with brown. The compost bin will then give an option to close it. In doing so, the organic items in the compost bin will start to decompose.
Compost bin composed

A compost bin with its contents decomposed. You may use a bucket on it to collect compost.

To make supercompost, a player needs to add high level organic items into the compost bin. Some of the accepted items are:

  • Watermelons
  • Pineapples
  • Poison ivy berries
  • Kwuam herbs
  • Tree roots

Trivia

  • There are other inaccessible farming patches in other places, such as Etceteria
  • This is among the skills which are slowest and hardest skill to train, others include Prayer and Herblore.
