Farming Simulator 22 introduces mulching, stone picking, and soil rolling
Giants Software has outlined some of the improvements it has made to ground working systems in Farming Simulator 22.
First up is mulching, which will let players use a mulcher on a tractor to apply freshly cut grass to the surface of the soil to improve the yield. Players can also mulch the stubble left on the field after harvesting crops to improve the yield of the soil.
Another addition in Farming Simulator 22 is stone picking. Players can clean up the stones left from cultivating and plowing using a stone picker and then sell them to the debris crusher for some extra cash. Stones that are left on the field can damage machines. However, players have the option to turn off stones if they don’t want to deal with it.
Players also have another option for dealing with the smaller stones in fields: the roller tool. Rollers can press the smaller stones unearthed through cultivating and plowing back into the ground. An additional yield bonus is on offer for using the roller after sowing seeds.
“There’s also incentive to get your roll on, when you’re a grassland enthusiast,” the developer added. “As rolling around on your meadows grants you a fertilizing stage. Mind, that rolling over grass sets it back to the first growth stage – so you should roll over the grass when it’s freshly cut and mowed.”
Farming Simulator 22 launches November 22nd for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Stadia.
