Farming provides the ability to plant certain resource products and then harvest crops from them after a certain period of time. These can then be sold in the marketplace in their raw form, used as ingredients for crafting, or transformed into other products than can be sold. These plants are referred to in-game as Harvested Agricultural Substances.
Crops may only be grown after learning the proper building parts from a farmer NPC that has been hired for your base or Freighter. This NPC character will require an Agricultural Terminal to provide research capabilities. Although some of the provided plants may be grown outdoors in the proper conditions, most farms are built inside Bio-Domes as they provide slots for Hydroponics Trays and more convenient harvesting.
An index of player farms can be found at Community Farms.
