Environmental issues are on the lips of the entire planet, including the agricultural industry. Farming Simulator 22 developer Giants Software is in a unique position to educate players on the steps being taken by farmers to improve the sustainability of their work and reduce their environmental footprint. A free DLC, currently slated to release next spring, will introduce the concepts of Precision Farming, with collaboration from a variety of governmental bodies, educational institutions, and organisations like John Deere.
A similar expansion is already available for Farming Simulator 19 – be sure to check it out if you haven’t already – but the German developer is promising many improvements for this iteration. Essentially, the pack will allow you to leverage technology to get the most out of your fields, managing things like water and pesticide. The idea is to maximise yields with the least environmental impact possible, reducing fuel and chemical runoff.
Giants Software says the add-on is “currently in the concept phase”, so it doesn’t have any specific details to share about what kind of features you can expect and how it’ll all work. More information may be announced at FarmCon 2021 later this week, though, and in the meantime you can learn a little more about Precision Farming on the franchise’s official website.
No one cares. Sounds like indoctrination lol
Kaleb Cooper and Gerald dlc incoming?
@SonuvLiberty you can say all information is some form of indoctrination. But people only call the information they don’t agree with indoctrination.
Speaking of chemical runoff, some of the bigger farmers around me are having problems with their corn crop this year due to bad soil from excessive herbicide spraying on their fields. Thing is, it's their own fault because they spray so much junk on their fields then they need to that it's soaking into the ground and ruining future crops.
Recently unlocked the Plat for the original Farming Simulator on Vita. When I'm on my deathbed I know for a fact I will regret those 40 or so hours.

@Daveuppercut seems you, me, and Thanos are the only ones who think this is the best solution.
@AhmadSumadi where do I sign up too?
Ah yes, the answer isn't good stewardship, it's having so few people it won't matter that they're all solipsistic slobs.
Man the things that some of you guys are implying is really worrisome.
@AhmadSumadi Don't forget about Richmond Valentine from Kingsman: The Secret Service.
@ATaco jokes. They’re only jokes.
Can never be too sure nowadays, especially over the internet.
There's enough on this world for everyone. The earth can produce enough crops for its population for many years to come, if we'd redistribute it all a bit better. And we could of course stop eating animals, that in turn eat crops. A major factor in deforestation is livestock farming.
But I know people. They don't wanna adapt, they don't wanna share. It's easier to yell "Too many people", "Too many immigrants" or whatever babies yell when they want all the candy for themselves.
