Atlas Farming Guide

With the help of our Atlas Farming Guide, you will be able to learn everything you need to know about farming in the pirate survival.

Farming in Atlas can come in handy when your vitamins are low and you need a quick meal to satisfy your appetite. Farming makes it very convenient to get vegetables and fruit within the safety of your base, so you might want to look into our Atlas Farming Guide.

To get started, you will first have to invest some skill points into the skill tree. Start by putting a point in “Cooking” under the Survivalism skill tree.  But before that, you will need to unlock “The Basics” and “Water Keeper” first.

After that, head over to the “Cooking and Farming” skill tree and start with “Water Storage,” then make your way to “Basic Farming.” When both of these are unlocked, you are pretty much set and can get working.

However, if you have some extra points, it is a good idea to unlock “Soil Tilling” as well.

Resources Need to Start Farming in Atlas

When you have unlocked all of the necessary skills, you must find some seeds as well as raw materials to construct farming plots and an irrigation system.

How to Get Seeds

You can get crop seeds from plants as a drop when harvesting a vegetable from it. However, there is a very slim chance of getting a seed when plucking it by hands, so you will have to use either a sickle or an animal to harvest it.


Before using a crop seed, make sure it is compatible with the soil type in the specific area. For instance, Pepper Seeds cannot be planted on rocky surfaces, no matter what biome it is. Conversely, the same seeds are perfectly compatible with grassy and sandy areas, without concerning any biome type.

Different types of seeds you can plant in the crop plots are Chickpea Seed, Beet Seed, Carrot Seed, Bean Seed, Cactus Seed, Onion Seed, Pepper Seed, Rice Seed, Turnip Seed, Wheat Seed, Edible Greens Seed, Chili Seed, and Maize Seed.


Under the Cooking & Farming skill tree, you will unlock fertilizer by investing skill points in the “Basic Farming” skill. Fertilizers can be crafted in your inventory. Sometimes you have to get your hands dirty to get the work done.

To make yourself a bag of fertilizer (54000 fertilizer), you have to collect one sample of feces produced by any animal, along with a heap of thatch (x50). Each mature plant will take at least 80% of a fertilizer bag,


Water is very important for plant growth. In rainfall areas, the need for water can be fulfilled by rain, but in other areas, you will need a water pipe system in place to irrigate the crop plots.

You will need a Water Reservoir which can be either Stone Water Reservoir or underground. If a crop plot is placed in the water, you don’t have to irrigate this plot further.

You can construct a small crop plot and some irrigation pipes from basic raw materials found around the map.

Soil Types

You have to start by placing the small crop plot on the ground, depending on the biome you place the plot over, the type of soil you will get in your plot. For example, Tropical Grass is generated by placing a crop plot on grass in a tropical biome.

Some crops can be grown only on certain soils, so you have to take the type of soil into account. Each biome has different types of soils. When hovering over the seed, you can read the information about where it will be able to grow.

How to Plant Crops in Atlas MMO

Once you have chosen a soil and planted a plot, you will have to fertilize it by pressing hold the use key and selecting the option. After that, plant a seed in it, using the same method.

You will be able to view the type of seed planted and how much fertilization it has received when looking at the plot now. There will also be a bar to indicate the water it has received.

Water is also a raw ingredient for farming; it can be acquired by rain or irrigation. Therefore, if rain is not expected, then you will have to build a water reservoir. Connect pipes from it and lead them over the crops you need to water.

The part just over the crop has to be connected with the irrigated water pipe. In order to acquire the pipes or the irrigated pipe, you will have to make pipes from the inventory. The pipes can be changed to one of five types by pressing “T”.

One of those types is a normal pipe, and the other is an irrigated pipe. To fill up the water reservoir you have to again either rely on the rain or fill it up manually using a water jar. Crops soak up water very slowly, so lack of water supply is not a big issue.

Soil Tilling

Ideally, it takes forever for your plant to grow, so to speed things up, you need to start Soil Tilling.

As previously mentioned, you should be able to unlock “Soil Tilling” from the Cooking and Farming tab. You can further increase your tilling attempts by unlocking “Improved” and “Advanced” Tilling skills.

Essentially, tilling increases the growth rate and can also increase crop yield, so instead of getting 1 item per crop, you may get a few more.

To initiate tilling, equip the shovel and approach the crop plot to interact with the plant. Upon interacting, you will have to play sort of a mini-game. Each successful attempt at the mini-game will increase the growth rate.

With the tilling ability maxed out, you will receive 3 attempts at the game for each time you try. Scoring successfully consecutively will get you the best bonus, but it has no setback even if you miss one or two tries.


Once the plant is ready to harvest, you can harvest it by going to the plant and pressing the Use e. In case you have seeds or fertilizer in your inventory, you have to hold the “E” button for harvesting the plant. Even when your plant has fully grown and harvested, you will still be able to till the soil, but this time, instead of the growing bonus, you will receive more vegetables from the crop for your successful attempts.
