Farmville Stars and Crop Mastery



The Farmville makers have been introducing new game elements at a steady rate since the launch. One of the biggest changes is the introduction of Farmville crop mastery and the 3 stars system.It adds even more interest to an already great game.
Crop mastery is not something that will make you rich but it does give you rewards in XP’s (experience points) and coins. You also get a sign saying that you have achieved mastery for the particular crop. Bragging rights are always worth something. I, for one, am very proud of my neat row of crop mastery signs- even if that row is pretty short right now.

When Does Crop Mastery Kick in and How do I get it?

Once you reach level ten you can sign up for crop mastery (free). Now, when you go to the market you will see stars under the crops.

How Do I Earn Stars?
You earn one crop mastery point for each plot harvested of the crop concerned. Each crop has a different number of points that you need to accumulate before you get the different stars. The slower growing crops generally need fewer mastery points but Farmville haven’t made all stars equally easy to get. You need to study the tables a little to see how long each will take.
Most people will still chose a crop on the basis of how much it earns in XP and coins. At the same time, I know have been swayed a few times in my crop choices by that itch to get another star.
One thing you will notice is that it takes a lot fewer points to go from 0 to 1 star and 1 star to 2 stars than it does from 2 stars to 3 stars. These game designers can be fiends.

What Do I get Out of Crop Mastery besides those pretty Stars and signs?

First of all, I wouldn’t run down ‘pretty’. One of the best things about Farmville is that the farm becomes more beautiful and more rewarding to work on as you get through the levels. Stars and signs are just as good as the new decorations that become available at each level!
I also like spending time just looking over neighbor's farms to see if they have anything I have missed out on somehow, whether it is a way of arranging things better or a decoration that I have never come across before. When I see a lot of signs I zoom in to see what a really good farmer can achieve.
We all like the coins though. so for those who need to know, here is the the bottom line:
Every time you go up a star level you get a coin reward
1 Star - 25 XP & 500 coins.
2 Star - 75 XP & 1500 coins.
3 Stars - 250 XP & 5000 coins.
If you post up your achievement, your friends will also benefit.
Rewards for Friends
1 Star =50 coins.
2 Stars= 100 coins.
3 Stars= 150 coins.
It is always nice to be popular- especially if it means you get more gifts..

Crop Mastery and Premium Crops

Once you have achieved crop mastery for a particular crop you will start getting premium crops. These are bigger than ordinary crops, look great and yield more.
The process is pretty random. Some squares planted with a crop you have mastered will grow as premium crops some will not. It seems to vary between 10% and 40%.
Premium crops give you up to 8 XP on harvesting which can be a significant jump in returns. Remember that non-premium crops give no XP on harvesting.
The XP gained at harvest seems similar for the different crops overall. The smaller the percentage of your crop that turns into a premium crop, the bigger the XP payout per square.
What can I do with My Mastery Sign?
There are only 2 options.
  • You can display it proudly.
  • You can delete it.
I would only delete mine if I was short of room for a second villa. That is a not a problem, right now. Unfortunately!
One thing you cannot do is sell it. That would be wrong- FarmVille crop mastery is all about the glory.
