How to Harvest Corn in Farming Simulator 22

Despite it being a seemingly easy task, farming corn in Farming Simulator 22 is a pretty involved affair, so let’s dive into what we need to do here.

  • Prepare the Equipment: Before you start harvesting corn, you’ll need the right equipment. Make sure you have a Corn Header attached to your combine harvester.
  • Keep the Timing in Mind: Corn is usually ready to be harvested in the late autumn or early winter. Keep an eye on the in-game calendar to ensure you don’t miss the ideal harvesting window. You can tell when the corn is ready by the look of it. Once the stalks are large and full, it’s time to go. October is usually the ideal time to do it.
  • Combine Speed Matters: Set your combine to the desired working speed, and make sure the header is lowered. A good starting point is to aim for a working speed of about 5-6 miles per hour.
  • Use the Harvester: With your combine in position, it’s time to use the harvester by unfolding it to start picking corn. The Corn Header will collect the corn cobs from the stalks and funnel them into the combine’s storage.
  • Monitor the Tank: Keep an eye on the tank capacity. When the combine tank is full, you’ll need to unload it into a nearby trailer or factory.
  • There Is Always More Corn: After unloading, go back and get the rest of the corn and repeat this process until it is complete.
  • Store or Sell the Corn: Once you’ve harvested all the corn, you can store it in silos or sell it at a grain elevator for a profit. You’ll also use corn to feed the livestock and it can be used to keep them nourished for a very long time.
  • Mix Up Your Crop Rotation: After harvesting corn, it’s a good idea to rotate your crops. Planting different crops throughout the seasons is important for maintaining soil fertility and preventing disease.

And that’s how to harvest corn in Farming Simulator 22. Harvesting corn is one of the most lucrative things you can do in the game. Not only can you make a good profit for it, but it can sustain your livestock as well. For more information on Farming Simulator 22, check out our guides section.
