The Crop-Matron is a tier 1 machine that will monitor crops in a 9x9x3 area and automatically apply Grid Fertilizer.png Fertilizer, Grid Weed-EX.png Weed-EX, and Water as needed. Water can be added to the Crop-Matron with Grid Universal Fluid Cell.png Universal Fluid Cells, or pumped in directly.

Use Weed-EX sparingly, since overuse will affect crops negatively.

To prove you're more then just a replaceable, puny, biological machine used to perform minor tasks for my personal pleasure the whole company, we provided you advanced means to perform your agricultural research tasks:

First off, you are now officially permitted to assemble a "Crop-Matron". This machine is designed to do your previous assignment: Sitting next to your crops and providing Fertilizer and Hydration for them. A single Crop-Matron can, if sufficiently powered, cover an crop area in a 4block-radius around it, with up to +-1 height meter difference. Be advised, to promote our employees working by hand, the machine is designed not to be as efficient as manual fertilizing/hydration.

Our mentally unstable artists asked us to pass on this "blueprint" to you for unknown reason: Crop-Matron:

c = Crop, C = Chest, M = Machine Block, E = Electronic Circuit
