The “Precision Farming Project” continues with a new and improved DLC for Farming Simulator 22. Including the initial versions features like soil types, soil sampling, variable rate applications, and economic analysis, the focus of the new DLC will go further.
Advanced precision farming technologies will be implemented: To increase the sustainability of your farms, optical sensors will be introduced. Thus, allowing a reduced application of herbicides as well as organic and mineral fertilizers.
Successful Project is Growing Bigger
Initiated in 2020 by John Deere and funded by EIT Food, Europe’s leading Food Innovation Initiative, the projects’ goal is to provide knowledge regarding sustainable farming technology. Implementing Precision Farming in Farming Simulator is one of EITs steps to increase awareness.
Besides EIT Food and John Deere, various partners from the European Union are also part of the project: The University of Hohenheim (Germany), the University of Reading (Great Britain), and Grupo AN (the largest cereal cooperative in Spain). New to the table this year is the Institute of Animal Reproduction and Food Research from the Polish Academy of Sciences to promote the technology among young farmers in Eastern Europe.

The above-mentioned partners are key to the continuation of the project. The first DLC was evaluated thoroughly by agricultural experts, students, farmers, and others. Of course, player feedback was an important factor when deciding on how to advance the project.
All owners of Farming Simulator 22 on PC, Mac, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One will be able to download it for free.
