The Department of Biotechnology of the State Farm is always a lot of work! Its employees are constantly producing unique development which are useful for farming and livestock breeding.
[править] Sowing material
In the Department of Biotechnology of the State Farm, your clones can purchase the sowing material needed to grow crops in agricultural fields. Your clone can purchase an unlimited number of seeds, and they do not deteriorate during long-term storage.
One bag of seeds is used for sowing one plot of land.
It is impossible to exchange or sell seeds.
More information on the conduct of agricultural activities can be found in the section "Business" - "Farming".
The income from sales of sowing material goes to the state budget. The state, in turn, at the end of each working day makes payments from this budget to the following reserves:
- 20% - to the Social Reserves of the Land of Clones
- 10% - to the Reserves of Wonder of the World “Giant Sunflower”
- 10% - to the Reserves of Wonder of the World “Great Ear”
- 30% - to the State Farm’s Securities Reserves
- 9% - to the Salary Bonus Reserves at University
[править] Flower seeds (for Serfs)
The Serf - the only clone in the account - can get free seeds of different flowers on the State Farm.
A day you can get no more than two bags of seeds of each type of flowers.
Flowers can be grown on the local area of your own dugout, which must be built first. More information about the process of growing flowers can be found in the "Farming" help section. Flowers can be sold at the Fair to other players or used as a gift when writing a letter by in-game Mail.
If the Serf remained flower seeds in his bag at the time of raising the social status, they will return back to the State Farm, so that other serfs could use them.
[править] Buy Super-feed for cattle
A unique development of the Department of Biotechnology of the State Farm is the production of Super-feed for cattle of two types: Super-feed for cows (%image_cow_superfeed%) and Super-feed for bulls (%image_bull_superfeed%).Consumption of Super-feed increases the amount of milk production in cows or weight gain in bulls, which will also give you a better chance of winning the “Farm Frenzy” tournament. More about the principles of operation of this magic feed and the Tournament’s rules you can read in the relevant chapters of the "Сattle" Help section of the game.
Super-feed can be obtained in the Department of Biotechnology in exchange for coupons of the State Farm. To get 1 kg of Super-feed you need to give 1 coupon of the State Farm and 0,1 gold coins.
The money part of the cost of obtaining Super-feed goes to the state budget. The state, in turn, at the end of each working day, pays 70% of this budget to the Prize Fund of the "Farm Frenzy" tournament.
There are several important points to consider when exchanging:
- The maximum amount of Super-feed that you can get in the Department of Biotechnology is equal to the number of coupons received from the handing over the young bulls in the nursery of the State Farm, divided by 5;
- The limit for the purchase of Super-feed applies to the entire account;
- When calculating the limit does not take into account the coupons received in any other way, in addition to handed over bulls;
- A limit defines the total number of Super-feed for bulls and Super-feed for cows to buy. You can choose what kind of Super-feed to buy and in what ratio.
If you have no desire or opportunity to buy Super-feed in the Department of Biotechnology, you can buy ready-made Super-feed at the Fair of the Land of Clones from other players for gold coins.
[править] Questions and Answers
|Question||I don't understand how to calculate how much Super-feed I can purchase, if I hand over the bull weighing 324 kg?|
|Answer||When you hand over a young bull to the nursery of the State Farm, your clone will receive 324 coupons of the State Farm. The limit of purchase of Super-feed for your account will increase by: 324/5=64 kg, you can buy at the expense of this limit 64 kg of Super-feed for cows, or 64 kg of Super-feed for bulls, or in any other proportion, in the total amount of 64 kg.|
|Question||Why can't I buy Super-feed in the Department of Biotechnology, although the coupons in bag I have?|
|Answer||Most likely, the account's limit for the purchase of Super-feed is small or equal to zero. You can buy Super-feed in the Department of Biotechnology only if you have handed over your own young bulls in the nursery of the State Farm to get coupons. If you just bought coupons on the Commodities Market or received them from the handing over of young boars, farm chickens or dogs in the nursery, it does not increase the limit.|
|Question||I exchanged a bull for coupons of the State Farm, but then I sold the coupons on the Commodities Market. Can I now purchase Super-feed using other coupons?|
|Answer||Yes, you can! Upon hand over the bull was set a limit on the amount of Super-feed that can be purchased. Next, it does not matter how you dispose of these coupons and what coupons you spend on the purchase of Super-feed.|
