You might be having trouble finding numbers on Super crops because Z themself has stated that the Super crops are not working properly. I haven't heard that it's been corrected yet.

    Thank you very much Mmmine2 - I hate when the super crops don't work properly as they are an essential part to crafting. What I hate further is that Zynga claim that bushel rates are higher than ever - I certainly haven't seen very much of this... :(

    Try fertilizing with a fertilize all. I found that helps increase the bushel yield.

    I will have to try that, but still unsure as to what the 'super crop' bushel yield should be as a guide. It seems like I am using more fuel to plant these crops than it does to get bushels to gain fuel from.

    Zynga says that the regular Fertilize All does not increase bushel yield, but the new Super Fertilizer will.

    And it sounds like they are still working out the bugs on the Bushel Report feature, according to this article:

    https://support.zynga.com/article/farmville/Bushel-Report-en_US-1390338383454

    I still don't have the feature, so that tells me that they are trying to "tweak it" before rolling it out to everyone.

    Hopefully, the Super Crops will have a bushel yield more consistent with what we're used to once it's tweaked. :)

    I have the Bushel Report feature, but haven't tested it on any Super crops since I got it. I suppose I could test it on the Forbidden Lilies on Jade Falls, maybe? (They seem to behave similar to Super Crops.)
    Also, could anyone test it on a Super land crop on Jade and Australia, or whichever have been the highest and lowest bushel yielding farms? I really don't want to unwither my Super Yellow Melons on Australia, as that's my farm I use to "appear" inactive / burned out. :p (I picked that one because of its reputation for low bushel yield.)

    What I read in the article Smokey posted is that each plot of a super plot is supposed to equal 5 regular plots (so theoretically you would get 5 times the bushels). But something is off with the way the bushel report is seeing super crops (so the yield is getting destroyed by pesky FV bugs eating our bushels - lol).

    I don't have it yet either - hoping they fix super crops before they release it to the rest of us. (I'm working on super crop mastery combined with crafting goods to trade for fuel and it is going quite well).

    Well if it makes you feel any better, I have the stupid bushel report and every single super crop I am planting is resulting on NO bushels whatsoever...So I am wasting alot of time, energy and turbos with this ....

    I think Z does not know its own Fert. All for it always increases bushels for me :0).

    So far, knocking on wood, I'm having good luck with it. I find it very handy when planting multiple crops on the same farm to know just how many plots I have of each one as I plant. Eliminates me having to count and do all the math in my fuzzy brain! :rolleyes: I also love knowing when the stall is almost full so I don't get unpleasant surprises when I really need a certain bushel and forget to check the market stall first. My bushel output seems to be fine so I guess I am lucky in that aspect of it.

    I'm with you on this one Sandy - didn't get it at the first launch and haven't got it yet but I'm hoping that they keep it your side of the pond.

    There is a very exhaustive explanation of this feature and what works and doesn't work on the fan site that starts with dirt and ends with farmer.

    Bushel report is working properly for me - on regular crops. I haven't planted any "Super" crops since it came out, BUT...

    I've had some Forbidden Lilies sitting grown on my Jade farm for a few weeks or so now. (They're terrace crops so they don't wither.) I was planting some Chickpeas there (I need the bushels to craft Vehicle Parts), and decided to cycle the Lilies. The Forbidden Lilies behave(d) just like super crops - they give extra bushels of the non-super-type crop - basically, IIRC, an unmastered (pre-1-star) super crop yielded better than or equal to a mastered regular crop.
    Bushel report said the Forbidden Lilies were supposed to give me 34 bushels, out of 68 plots planted. I remember before Bushel Report, I was often getting more bushels than plots - sometimes 100 or more (I don't remember if I got 200 or near that) in a single field's harvesting. Just a few minutes ago, I got TEN bushels.
    I have some withered Super Yellow Melons on Australia, but I really don't want to unwither those, harvest them, replant then wait the 10 days for them to wither again. I have them there to appear "inactive" because FV's gotten to be so much work if I try to keep up with everything. Also, traditionally Australia's had the worst bushel yield of all farms so I wouldn't be planting on it anyway, except crops needed for and only plantable on Australia, which I'm not working on right now. (My sig pic is taken from my Australia farm.)
