The Fertilizer Maker is one of the pieces of equipment that can be used in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life. As the name suggests, the Fertilizer Maker converts materials into useful fertilizer that can be used to improve the quality of crops or grow tall grass.
Read ahead as we talk more about the Fertilizer Maker and how important it is to the farm in Story of Seasons: A Wonderful Life.
How to get the Fertilizer Maker
The Fertilizer Maker can be bought from the farm ledger beside the shipping box for 45,000G. Once delivered, it will be installed under the other shed on the farm.
How to use the Fertilizer Maker
The Fertilizer Maker can accept almost any type of item that is placed in it, so long as it’s not a bag of fertilizer or tools. To convert an item, select the item from your hotbar and then interact with the maker. You will then have to select how many of those items you want to put inside the maker. Afterwards, a short animation will play, and the machine will churn out a bag of fertilizer. This is just part of the animation, as you’ll still get the right amount of fertilizer bags.
Each item that you place inside the Fertilizer Maker will be converted into 5 bags of fertilizer, making this a great way to get enough fertilizer to raise your crop quality and have a decent stock of fodder rather than purchasing the bags from Vesta’s Farm.
Uses of Fertilizer
Fertilizer is used mainly for crops in order to increase their quality into a higher tier, but it is also needed to grow long grass in the pasture. With this, you can start by putting in a few pieces of fodder in the maker to get some bags of fertilizer. Then, you can spread the fertilizer into the pasture to grow more grass for fodder. Repeat this process whenever you need to, and you will have unlimited fertilizer and fodder for your farm.
Eventually, your crops will all be at S-tier, and there’s actually a more efficient way of raising crop quality without needing a lot of fertilizer with the help of the Seed Maker. So by the latter years, you will be using the maker mostly for maintaining your fodder stock.
