Olives are one of the most popular crops in Farming Simulator 22. Olives can only be planted when the harvest calendar permits. As olive harvesting occurs only in October, this crop needs a higher setting for days before months change.
To plant Olives:
- Free up some land on your property.
- Go to the Store menu.
- Click on Others (three lines at the bottom of the menu).
- Click Construction.
- In Construction, change the tab to Production.
- Click the Orchards menu.
- Click Olive Grove (Normally $130).
Mulching and Cultivating
Attach a mulcher to your olive tree row and begin mulching. With your mulcher lowered, drive up and down the trees—taking care to avoid the trees themselves—and you should get the grass mulched. This prepares the ground for better growth.
The next step is to cultivate. Hook a cultivator to your tractor and repeat the previous step.
Following that is fertilization, which just requires the player to drive between the olive groves. Don't worry about this first step if your ground has already been fertilized. The starter set of machinery that he game recommends is listed below.
Harvesting and selling olives
Even though a harvester for olives is a big investment, leasing is a great option if you don't have the funds to pay for it outright. As for the trailer, just like any other crop, it is fine, as long as it fits the harvest.
Drive your harvester into your olive trees. We will need the trees to go right through the center of your harvester this time. It will be a little complicated, so drive slowly. As your harvester fills up, you will see your trees stripped of their olives. Don't let your harvester get too full before you fill your trailer with olives. Overloading the container will result in the extra olives being removed but not added to your capacity, making them wasteful.
Olives sold after harvesting are pretty profitable. If you invest in an oil mill, you can press the olives into oil, which will normally sell for $3,000 more than olives.
