Introduction[edit]

This tutorial will give you an in-depth look into IndstrialCraft 2 crops, the cross-breeding of plants, and the extensive agriculture system.

Before we get started, you will need all the stuff you would normally for a farm, a hoe, water, and some seeds.

Crops[edit]

Crops ig.png First, we'll make some crops. The crop block allows for seeds to be placed inside to grow, or another crop block to placed on it to cross-breed 2 plants.

Weed-EX[edit]

Weed-EX prevents weeds from growing on open crop blocks.

Negative Effects[edit]

However, Weed-EX will also cap the stats of the crop inside the crop block it was used on at 10.

Fertilizer[edit]

Fertilizer is used to speed up the growth of plants. Bone Meal can also be used on the crop to speed up growth, but is not nearly as effective. Vanilla Wheat seeds can be used on Wheat to the same effect as Bone Meal.

Cross-Breeding[edit]

Crop-Matron[edit]

The Crop-Matron will automatically fertilize, hydrate, and spray Weed-EX on crops in a 5x5 area (with the Crop-Matron in the center).

Crop Harvester[edit]

Once you have bred enough of a plant that you want to start farming it, you can build a Crop Harvester. The Crop Harvester does just whar the name implies, it will harvest crops in an 11x11x3 area, and eject them into the first available adjacent inventory.
