Farming Simulator 22 Best Crops List: Plant These on Your Farm First

Though it all depends on your playstyle, these are some of the best crops in Farming Simulator 22 right now.

With over 15 main crops to choose from, players have more options for the best crops in Farming Simulator 22 than ever before. With the addition of the very popular Seasons mod as an integrated optional feature, there’s new planning that goes into planting and harvesting.

As for best crops in Farming SImulator 22, it really comes down to what you plan to do on your farm. If you're planning on raising animals, you should grow the crops that they eat. If you're looking to buy the grain mill and bakery production buildings for flour and bread, go with a grain crop. Below is a list of some of the best crops to grow on your farm right now. 

Best Crops in Farming Simulator 22


Cotton is one of the best crops to grow for big money production since you can turn it into fabric and then clothing. Clothing is one of the highest-selling products in Farming Simulator 22, topping out at a peak price of $20,000 per full pallet

Grow cotton in your biggest fields to maximize profitability. You may need to rent harvesting equipment for the first season; it's some of the most expensive in the game. 



Oat is another profitable crop, as it has good yield and the best ratio of crop-to-flour production. It can be used as animal feed for horses and pigs, too. Oat also produces straw as a secondary harvest for animal bedding and manure production. It can also be sold for supplemental income, making it one of the best crops right now.


Much like in Farming Simulator 19, soybeans are a moderate-yield, high-value crop. Presently, soybeans don't have any use in production chains, but they can be used as feed for pigs. They also have one of the highest crop sales prices in the game, putting it on this list of best crops.


Canola is the last grain crop on this best crops list, but it is not the least important. It has a good yield and commands a decent price. However, it is also a production chain crop in the form of becoming canola oil at the oil mill. 


Yes, the humble grass makes the list for best crops, and honestly, it isn't that far behind cotton in terms of overall value. It can be used as feed and fuel, and it is the fastest-growing crop in the game with the longest time for growth and harvest. It's so amazing that we've written a dedicated grasslands care guide for it

And those are some of the best crops in Farming Simulator 22. In the end, your choice of crop really comes down to your needs and your playstyle. This is by no means a definitive list as we have no idea what is in store for future DLC, and we may change this guide as time goes on.

From Atari 2600 to TTRPG and beyond I game, therefore I am. Can generally be found DMing D&D on the weekend, homebrewing beer, or tripping over stuff in my house while playing VR. Hopeful for something *Ready Player One* meets *S.A.O Nerve Gear* before I kick the bucket.
