Tips and Tricks
It is recommended to dedicate a person to plant corn manually, as the AI tends to place corn sparingly: approximately one ear of corn every 6 tiles. Planting corn manually allows for the most compact layout, easily planting 100 corn in a 10 x 10 area will provide enough food for up to 10 people and have enough left over to sell to traders.
