There is a demo:

http://www.farming-simulator.com/

Regarding hiring of illegals, I play in easiest mode which reduces labor costs and the gear is cheaper too. I think the game is made in Germany - so it's prolly Turks instead of Mexicans ;)

You need to figure out how to get the Madonna farming tax credits. ;-)

I think I've figured out why the last crop was a disaster: b/c the sower needs seeds. Everything was going along great, far as I could tell, except nothing being planted. The combine wouldn't harvest it b/c it was grass (not weed, grass). I need a lawn mower not a combine.

Well, grass is not entirely useless.
It can be grown into hay, which can be used to feed livestock.
It can also be allowed to go fallow, which will add nutrients to the soil for the following year.

Do they allow you to use Crop rotation?
Is that modeled in the game?

The Four Field System has been in use now for around 300 years.

I don't know that.

I've figured out how to use the grain elevator to store and load grains. Harvested 2 seasons w/ success. Bought a larger tipper trailer so I won't have to go to the store as often. The tractor I was using can barely pull the bigger tipper w/ 3x the capacity. So I drove to the store at about 1mph. W/ what I sold I got a bigger tractor for the tipper. Making money at least.

Next on the shopping list is a A600 b/c it will cultivate and sow. Fairly expensive machinery also I need a tractor w/ enough kw to pull/run it. I'll look into this tonight prolly. Also want a bigger combine, that's some serious beans.

Enjoying the game. I'll grow all the grains first just to be sure I know what I'm doing, then will look into corn maybe. I need different gear for that.

Canola is crushed to provide you cooking oil not eaten.

They can crush it and snort it far as I care, so long as they buy!

The canola is more pay per ton but it seems wheat gives more yield so it's prolly about the same.

Did 2 crops of canola and sold it already. I sowed barley last night and the combine is idling ready to harvest. Before going to bed I bought a combine deck to harvest corn. The a600 cultivator/sower won't plant corn, but some old gear I have to hand will. That gear is lined up as well, ready to plant corn next go.

Awe yeha 8-) Call me The Farmer.
