Farmville First Screen

When you come to FarmVille for the first time you find yourself standing in the middle of your farm. There are six plots, two of which are ready to harvest. You harvest crops by clicking on them. When you harvest crops you receive farmville coins.

After you harvest the crops you need to plow the plots and plant new seeds. You select the plow tool and click the plot square to plow it. You can also plow new (green) squares to make them plantable.

Once you have some squares plowed you need to plant your seeds.

It is important that you understand how crops work in farmville before planting. Some crops take longer to become ready to harvest than others. Some are ready in hours while others can take up to 4 days to ripen. That is four real days. I made the mistake of planting all wheat as my first crop and could not do much for three days. What I should have planted were strawberries which are ready in 4 hours.

If you want to build your Farmville Farm to its fullest potential, you will have to really focus on experience. Experience points need to be supplemented and synergystically combined with other activities. For example making improvements to your farm is a great way to gain experience points as well as putting up decorations or structures. Always be aware of how much experience points each activity brings to maximize your yield.

You should also take experience points into consideration when deciding which crops to plant. Crops that take less than a day to grow only yield 1 experience point, while crops that take longer yield 2. That doesn’t mean you only want to plant crops that offer 2 experience points however. If you can get back and harvest them as soon as they’re ready, crops like strawberries will get you more than 2 experience points a day because you can harvest them every 4 hours.

Experience points also need to be taken into account when deciding which crops to plant. The amount of time it takes for crops to grow/harvest is important in deciding which to plant. Just because a crop pays more experience points doesn’t mean its worth planting if it takes too long to grow. Many crops like strawberries that can harvested readily can earn you tons of experience points because of how quickly they grow.

You have to be on top of your harvesting and planting cycles in order to make progress this way though. Putting up buildings on your farm remains the best way to get big boosts in your experience quickly. Save up your cash for those, and you’ll be well on your way to unlocking all of the available items in FarmVille.


The simple method of raising your experience count so as to complete the game levels by farming. By farming we mean plowing, planting and harvesting of the fully grown crops. Now since the experience count is dependent on farming, so the more you farm the more experience you gather. But for more farming you need more plots, as you will be provided with only one 16*16 plot in the beginning. Some can think of using FarmVille cheats (which doesn't exist) but this can also be done by unlocking the larger plots in the Market place. Now for unlocking these items you just have to simply increase your number of neighbors. With more neighbors you can buy more plots from the Market place, thus eliminating the need of the non existing FarmVille cheats.

Another problem which online farmers may face is what crop to buy and plant in their ploughed land. This also has a simple solution and it can be done with a simple strategy. If you are a daily user then crops with not more than 24 hours maturity time is the best buy. While if you are little irregular then choose something with higher maturity rate. Moreover, before choosing a crop to yield you must take a peek to the experience that it will earn. So keeping both the parameters in mind you can efficiently farm and cross the game levels.

Crops grow and ripen at various times. There is no way to stop the crops from growing while you are away from your computer. Plant the crops that take longer to grow when you go away from your computer for a while. If you are planning on being away from your computer for 8 hours try planting tomatoes, pumpkins, or sugar cane. All of these items are available at different levels and they can really make the difference in rotting fruit. This saves money and time from clearing rotted crops.
