Fertilizer is a Farming material that is created in a Compost Bin or by a Dung Beetle. It is designed to be the most efficient means of fertilizing your crops; an unused batch of fertilizer provides 54,000 units of 'fertilizer' to any Crop Plot.
Fertilizer can also be produced by Dung Beetles. After putting Feces in a beetle's inventory, it will convert it into 1-3 units of Fertilizer and 2-6 units of Oil. This process takes 15 minutes. The amount of Fertilizer produced depends on the size of the feces.
Usage[edit | edit source]
To use, open the Crop Plot's Inventory screen by pressing the 'Use' key ("E" by default), or holding the 'Use' key and selecting Inventory from the radial menu. Place the Fertilizer inside the Crop Plot's inventory, and if provided that Seeds/Plants and Water are available, it will continue the growth process. Or for Console Users go to the crops inventory screen and move it over by first double tapping them into the crops/plants inventory.
Storage[edit | edit source]
Storing Fertilizer can be difficult since it does not stack at all. However, with their low weight, storing lots of Fertilizer in a dino can prove to be the most efficient way of storing them. Every creature can hold a maximum of 300 stacks of items, which is twice the holding capacity of a Vault. This means something as simple as a Dodo or a Kairuku will be able to hold 300 Fertilizer and still have plenty of carry weight left over.
Fertilizer Comparison[edit | edit source]
|Fertilizer type||Fertilizer units||Fertilizes for||Fertilizes full* plant for|
|Human Feces||1,000||10m||3h 5m|
|Small Animal Feces||3,500||35m||10h 48m|
|Medium Animal Feces||7,500||1h 15m||23h 8m|
|Large Animal Feces||15,000||2h 30m||1d 22h 15m|
|Massive Animal Feces||35,000||5h 50 min||4d 11h 55m|
|Fertilizer||54,000||9h||6d 22h 30m|
* When a plant has its maximum of fruits, it needs less fertilizer. As the fruits spoil after some time, leaving the plant in a non-full state for some time, these numbers are rather theoretical maximums.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- Strangely, fertilizer has an option for the player to consume it, but even when eaten, it appears to do nothing.
