A freighter farm

Farming is one of the major methods of fund-raising in No Man's Sky.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Farming provides the ability to plant farmable agricultural products and then harvest resources from them after a certain period of time with using Haz-Mat Gauntlet, except for Echinocactus. These can then be sold at Galactic Trade Terminals in their raw form, used as ingredients for crafting, or transformed into other products that can be sold. Most of these resources are referred to in-game as Harvested Agricultural Substances.

Crops may only be grown after learning their blueprint from the Farmer 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 Hydroponic Trays and more convenient harvesting.

An index of player farms can be found at Community Farms.

Crafting products[edit | edit source]

Here are the minimum number of resources required to setup a self-sustaining farm for one of each of the higher-end Advanced Agricultural Products, with highest possible yield per hour:

As of NEXT 1.55, the best value is now Living Glass as it grows much more rapidly as both Liquid Explosive and Circuit Board grow in roughly 24 hours now.
