PixARK Farming Guide: Growing, Irrigating, and Harvesting

Can't figure out how farming works in PixARK? Here's a simple step-by-step guide that will show you how to grow, irrigate, and harvest your crops.

Farming crops and other plants in PixARK can get rather problematic if one doesn't have a clear idea of what they need to do. It is especially important to get this task right from the very beginning, or you may spend many hours figuring out the processes of growing, irrigating, and harvesting your seeds.

All you need to do to avoid this, though, is follow our quick step-by-step guide below for fast and efficient farming in PixARK.

Step 1: Gather Seeds

The first, and most obvious, step is to gather the seeds of the crop or plant that you want to farm.

The most effective way to gather seeds is to tame one of the following two dinosaurs:

  • Parasaur
  • Triceratops

Simply run through bushes and plants with your dino and the seeds will be automatically added to your stash.

Step 2: Set Up a Farming Plot

In order to plant and grow your seeds, you need to set aside a plot of land for your farm. The best location for your plot is near a source of water.

This is needed for a water irrigation system, which requires a Water Intake Pipe, which can irrigate up to a three-block radius.

This means that you need to remove the foundation of 6x6 blocks and replace it with soil or dirt blocks.

Step 3: Set Up an Irrigation System

Your seeds won't grow without an irrigation system, so here's what you need to do :

  1. Craft a Water Intake Pipe and a Water Tap
  2. Put the Water Intake near the source of water
  3. Put the Water Tap in the center of your plot
  4. Connect the Water Intake and the Water Tap with pipes

This simple installation will keep your seeds watered at all times.

Step 4: Harvest Your Crops

Finally, you can put your seeds into one of your free active slots, and then put the seeds into blocks of soil.

You will notice that your crops will start growing immediately. This method can be applied to all types of plants and trees in PixARK, except those seeds that require ice blocks instead of soil blocks for growing.

When your crops are ready to be harvested, you can use Parasaur to harvest the crops or use Triceratops to harvest seeds.
