it Sounds like you have the original plant 1, harvest 2 crop system.

Under the original system, you need to plant fields using the crops you have in storage. That’s why they always give us 3 to plant when we level up to get the next crop. Under this system, you use 1 cotton to plant a field, then get 2 cottons when you harvest, for example.

If you accidentally use up all of a crop without replanting, I think the game still lets you replant 1 field for free. Otherwise, you may need to spend gems to get started. With this plant 1, harvest 2 system, you can double your inventory each time you harvest until you build back up to a good inventory level. Personally, I try always to replant immediately after I harvest, before loading any mills or selling any crops. If I am in a hurry, I only harvest half that crop’s fields to use quickly, then go back and harvest the other half to replant all the fields.

There is another system being tested where we pay coins to plant fields, but then harvest only 1. Under this stystem, it doesn’t matter how many we have in inventory. You can use coins to plant as many fields as you need.

Each system has advantages and drawbacks. We don’t get to choose, we just have to adapt to whichever system they gave us.

I’ve got pay for crop version with the new update on both islands now.
Did they roll it out for everyone or it’s still beta?

I have had coin for crops for months, so maybe it will be for everyone.

Probably. As long as I have been playing, I don’t recall them ever starting a beta that they didn’t eventually implement, except the TV bird whose beta testing goes on forever and ever except on Windows where they have either given up or havent started yet.

Never, that I can remember have they had the management spine to dump a beta no matter how bad an idea it was or how much we didn’t like it. They always opt for pouring more good money after bad. (I’m not saying their betas aren’t usually good ideas, but they have made me wonder what is their point in asking for feedback if they plan to ignore it anyway.)

I think you might be one of the few to still have this feature. I lost it a long time ago, on both islands.

I hope it lasts. I love being able to plant extra fields and harvest twice as much to replenish my stores. :D

I still have harvest 2 on my second game. My game 1 changed to coins to plant system when it was first rolled out and neither game has switched since, in either direction. I think I would be happy with the coins system if we still only had one Jasperfest a month, but now that we seem to be Festing half the time or more, I prefer the harvest 2.
