Corn

General Remarks :

* Corn is one of the basic foodstuffs in the game. When you eat (use) corn, every bag of it helps you to reduce your hunger by one point (you need one or two points per day).

* The corn also is bought by the pig breeders to feed their pigs.

* You must have a corn bag in your property to sow. This means inside your home.

* How to do this: click on "Me", click "My inventory". Find the corn and click the button that has an arrow. This means transfer. It will have a photo of a house.

"Amount to be transferred". Click on "OK". It says, "
You decide to leave this item at home."

The corn is now in your home and your worker can use it to plant your field.

How does it work ?

The corn grow in seven days/stages:
1) On the first day, it is necessary to plow (hire strength: 14 pounds for 0 Strength, 16 for 16 pounds). Do not forget to keep a bag in your home for the worker to sow seeds!

2) The corn grows for 5 days. (So, on days 2 - 6 , you do nothing.)

3) On the 7th day it is necessary to harvest (
hire strength: 16 for 16 pounds).

The yields of a corn field

The yields are linked to the strength of the worker.
(sum of the strength points (SP) of the plow/sow + Harvest)

Total SP Number of bags
0 SP ---->> 19 bags
11 SP ---->> 20 bags
22 SP ---->> 21 bags
32 SP ---->> 22 bags

How it grows :
- At the beginning the corn field has a quality of 50%.
- After sowing, you can bring the quality to 55%, if the one that worked possesses 20 SP.
- After the harvest, you can bring the quality to 60%, always, if the one that worked possesses 20 SP or more.

Specific technical notes:
Or then 40 SP to one of the two works, and 0 SP to the other.

The total strength plow/sow + harvest cannot exceed 40 SP

Knowing that it needs 4 SP to increase the quality by 1%, the quality calculation is as following :

Quality = A/4 + B/4 + 50 (where A is the SP of the sower and B the SP of the harvester)

Prices & Hires

* Prices: This average price of a corn bag is between 2.15 pounds and 3.00 pounds.

* Hires: The farmer should hire for 19 strength if they can afford to hire for 19 pounds. You should hire when possible, as you earn a reputation point by hiring workers.

The calculation of the salaries for Ayr:

Strength -->> Salaries
0 SP ---- >>> 16 -18 pounds
17 SP ---- >>> 17 - 20 pounds
18 SP ---- >>> 18 - 20 pounds
19 SP ---- >>> 19 - 22 pounds

Results

You should yield 22 bags or more. Make sure to ALWAYS leave one in your home.

To remove the other 21 bags from your home to sell them, do this:
Click on My Home, then Your Home, then Your Property's Inventory. Then you Take with you what you want to sell. So, in this example 21 bags. This corn will appear in your inventory and now you can sell it.

And try to spread your sales in the whole week, thus the farmer will sell 1 to 2 bags a days to the minimum. Always keep a couple of bags in your inventory just in case.
