From Dwarf Fortress Wiki

This article is about the current version of DF.
(This article is about crop plants. If you want information about trees, see Tree.)

Crops are plants that can be farmed, traded for, or acquired by plant gathering. Farming happens at farm plots. There are two types of crops: above ground and subterranean. The seeds of subterranean crops may be brought from the starting embark screen or, with some small luck, purchased from dwarven caravans. Above ground crops and seeds may be purchased from human or elven caravans or gathered by dwarves with the plant gathering labor enabled. Seeds may also be collected by processing the plants or eating them (but not by cooking!). There is a limit of 200 seeds per type (adjustable in d_init.txt), after which no additional seeds will be produced.

A few of the plants listed below are not strictly crops, as they have no seeds and can't be planted (see note "4", below.)

Most plants can be brewed into alcohol, each plant type producing a different variation, and dwarves do prefer some variety in their drink. Some plants may be eaten raw, others must be cooked first, others must be processed first (by milling or plant processing) before they are edible, and still others are inedible, producing only non-food products (their seeds may be edible, though). Drinks may be cooked as ingredients in prepared meals, but at least one of the ingredients must be a non-liquid.

All drinks require a spare barrel or large pot for storage, and some other products also require specific containers for storage. Plants can be stored in barrels or without a container; seeds are stored individually or in bags which can then be put into barrels. It may be advisable to have a small stockpile that accepts only seeds next to your farm(s), since dwarves will happily carry entire pots of seeds across the map to pick up a single seed, leading to cancellation spam and irregular planting.

[edit] Standard Plants

These are the plants defined in the file plant_standard.txt. Standard plants have been changed very little from the previous version; tiles and colors have been upgraded, and brewing, pressing and processing plants to bags have been re-implemented as reactions, which means these options will be unavailable in the workshop if materials are missing.

Notes:

1 This is the value for a stack of 5 units, which is the number rendered from a single plant.
2 Anything that can be cooked is edible afterwards. Note that cooking leaves no seeds for re-planting.
3 These plants cannot be eaten/cooked until they are further processed, either by milling or extracting; see "products" column for process product.
4 These plants cannot be grown on a farm plot as they have no seeds. They can only be acquired through plant gathering (in season only) or trade.
5 To get the products/extracts from the plants they have to be processed, in the following workshops, using the following labors:

[edit] Garden Plants

All garden plants are above-ground, and can grow year-round. Garden plants are defined in a separate file from standard plants, named, somewhat predictably, plant_garden.txt.

Unlike standard plants, garden plants will also produce growths - leaves, buds, flowers, pods and fruits. As a general rule, leaves can be only cooked, buds can be both cooked and brewed.

[edit] Best crop to grow

There is no "best" crop, but some are clearly superior to others, depending on your needs and available resources.

[edit] All-purpose

Many dwarves prefer the humble plump helmet, which can be grown year-round, eaten raw, cooked, or brewed into wine, and many early fortresses rely on the plump helmet crop as a staple of their diet. All above-ground crops are all-seasons as well, the best of which are probably sun berries, hemp, and whip vines. See the above table summarizing the crop products, limitations, and values.

Because of occasional above-ground inconveniences, having an underground plump-helmet farm or at least some plump-helmet seeds may be useful emergency preparation.

[edit] Booze

Four principal seeds available at the beginning of an expedition (cave wheat, pig tail, plump helmet, sweet pod) all produce underground crops that can be made into booze worth 10☼. Above ground crops will require you to trade or gather for seeds, but the best of them that can be farmed are sun berries, which produce sunshine worth 25☼.

Keep in mind that dwarves care more about the diversity of available booze than its value.

For quantity, cave wheat and sweet pod mature in 42 days, vice 25 for the other crops, so they may yield less alcohol per farm plot. Plump helmets mature in 25 days and grow year round, which may be a good starting point for your alcohol industry, but exclusive dependence on it will cause stress.

[edit] Dye

There are four dye crops. Three 20☼ dye crops: blade weed and sliver barb (above ground) and dimple cups (underground). Hide root (above ground) is a 10☼ dye.

[edit] Food

In terms of sheer dwarfbucks, sweet pods produce the most valuable foodstuff: Dwarven syrup (100☼). In terms of quantity and value, other good crops are quarry bushes (which yield 5 quarry bush leaves when processed) and whip vines (which can be milled into whip vine flour). Diversity in meals is also important to dwarves.

[edit] Thread

All plant thread is equally valuable (at 2☼ per unit), so the main decision is between a seasonal underground crop (pig tails) or one of the year-round above-ground crops (cotton, rope reeds, hemp, flax, jute, ramie, kenaf).
