Peacocks grazing in the fields #
This method of supplementary fertilization of fields through peacock grazing is suitable for landowners who keep peacocks.
Requirements for grazing #
You can graze peacocks on any plot of land that meets the following requirements:
- a designated clone works on the plot of land;
- sowing seeds on the plot has not yet begun;
- this season, peacocks have not yet grazed on this field.
Peacocks graze in the fields for 2 days (48 hours). During this time, they increase the productivity of the plot by 10% due to natural fertilizer. You can graze peacocks and use fertilizers on the plot, but you need to do this one by one: first one, then the other. When both methods of fertilization are used together, the effect of their use is summed up.
Unlike the process of manual fertilization, peacocks can be released into the same field every growing season. The effect of grazing only lasts for the current season.
The duration of the peacock grazing stage cannot be shortened by hiring servants
Examples of combining breeds for grazing #
It was already mentioned earlier that peacocks with a total nominal value of no more than 7 gold coins can be released on 1 field.
The table shows examples of combining peacocks of different breeds/
Table. Combining peacock breeds for grazing.
|Price, gold||Combination of breeds||Effect of grazing||Example (sown with amaranth)|
|2||Ordinary (2 pcs)||(2/7)||12.34|
|3||Ordinary (3 pcs) or red||(3/7)||12.51|
|4||Ordinary (4 pcs) or 1 red + 1 ordinary||(4/7)||12.68|
|5||Ordinary (5 pcs) or 1 red + regular (2 pcs)||(5/7)||12.85|
|6||Ordinary (6 pcs) or red (2 pcs)||(6/7)||13.02|
|7||Ordinary (7 pcs) or red (2 pcs) + ordinary (1 pc)||(7/7)||13.2|
Attention! Each plot can be used for peacock grazing only once per season. If peacocks are released onto the field in the current season, even in an incomplete group (worth less than 7 gold coins), repeated grazing in this field will not be possible. The next grazing is available in the new season.
For convenience, there are two peacock distribution modes: maximum and uniform. For example, with 7 plots and 7 common peacocks, the “Maximum” mode will place all the peacocks in one field, and the “Even” mode will distribute 1 peacock to each plot of land .
During grazing, a peacock may be kidnapped by a dragon.
If a peacock dies from old age while grazing, the effect of its grazing will be taken into account in full, as in the case of abduction.
Buying peacocks #
You can purchase peacocks in the “State Farm nursery” or from other players in the “Peacocks” section (“State Farm – Peacocks”).
Each breed of peacock has a certain nominal value. The nominal value is important, since one or more peacocks of different breeds can be sent to each plot, but their total value should not exceed 7 gold coins. The total cost of grazing peacocks determines the degree of fertilization of the site and, as a consequence, the increase in yield in the current agricultural season.
