The Planet Crafter Farming and Food Guide – TechRaptor

This The Planet Crafter Farming and Food Guide will tell you how to find more food, how farming works, and what you can craft with your crops.
The Planet Crafter farming is fairly straightforward — all you need to do is build a Food Grower or Food Grower T2, put a seed inside, and wait for it to grow. Once it’s grown, you can harvest the Food. You’ll get back exactly one seed — no more, no less — and you can replant that same crop or choose to plant something else.
A small note here — you can’t remove a seed if a crop is fully grown. You’ll have to remove the crop first; you’ll automatically pick up the seed when you do.
You can unlock Farming in The Planet Crafter by advancing Oxygen to 12.00 ppt through Terraforming. This will let you build the basic version of the Food Grower.
There is a much better version called the Food Grower T2, too. It allows you to grow crops much faster, but at twice the Power cost. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to gain access to it until you’ve unlocked Biomass and completed a number of other milestones in that tech tree first.
In the early game, you can get more Food by looting Storage Chests, crashed ships, and bunkers. There is a finite supply of these items, though — eventually, you’re going to have to embrace your inner Mark Watney and start growing your own Food.
The only way you can get more seeds in The Planet Crafter is by finding Storage Chests and exploring Derelicts. Check out our Map and Locations Guide to see all of the places you can find seeds!
The Planet Crafter Farming Guide - Mushrooms
You start the game with some Space Food in a Storage Crate on your Drop Pod — this will be your only source of Food until you unlock Farming. You can also find Space Food in the various Storage Chests and Derelicts throughout the game. Sadly, there is no way to Craft Space Food in The Planet Crafter just yet.
Beans are hands-down the best Food item. Just two Food Grower T2s with Beans will be enough to keep you alive indefinitely. I like to place two Food Grower T2s at my outposts so I can quickly fill up my Health if I’m running low while I’m away from home.
Eggplant is used for Fertilizer, and Fertilizer is used in Craftinglot of stuff that’s used to advance Terraforming and increase Biomass. I strongly recommend dedicating at least 10–20 Food Growers to Eggplants; you’re going to go through a lot of Fertilizer.
Mushroom is best used for Crafting Bioplastic rather than eating. Sadly, I’ve found Mushroom Seeds to be quite rare — you’d be lucky to find 10 by the time you have liquid water on the planet. You should make sure you’re growing as much as you can.
Squash is decent early-game food, but it doesn’t have many Crafting uses outside of Fertilizer T2 — and Fertilizer T2 is only used in a handful of late-game recipes. You’ll probably only need 2-4 Food Growers dedicated to Squash.

I’ve had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven’t stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs – I’ve tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I’m always looking to try more!
