Should I grow corn?

Prev1
I have been tapping over a year now, and have never grown corn. In my advanced age of 63, I could pass away before the corn would mature.

    Suppose it depends wether you need the experience or not. 3 months is a long wait! I've got about 29 days left on mine but don't think I'd do it again...I guess I just wanted to be able to say I'd done it.

    I'm on my second round. Don't need $ or xp. Just for no good reason

    Assuming you have forum members as neighbors and it's still "glitch able" by the time it matures it could make you a lot of money

    I've done it twice, and at the mo, every time my neighbour taps it i get about 65k and 10k exp (roughly) so if it can still hold multiple taps in 90 days you will be laughing. I have some great neighbours and can get 10 taps a day usually :)

    I joined the Christmas corn grow group that was started here: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/9683124.page
    Almost there, gonna move the farm next to the gift tree to maximize the glitch.

    I started my Corn when I was about, IDK, level 15? Can't remember... But the Corn payout would give me a lot of Cash, and then I could buy the items and save for later. Raaaight.

    I was level 30 something when the Corn finally grew. I needed more money to buy something. Totally not worth it if you're a low level.

    But if you aren't and are bored, why the hell not?

    This reason as well as not planning to take advantage of the multi-tap exchanges with neighbors and the heartbreak of accidentally clearing a final tap, are the only good reasons I can think of NOT to grow corn.

    90 days is a long wait but once it's done, corn will generate almost 4.5x the amount of cash/XP as moonshine/Ch6 with Arnie Pye/Open Air Stage with Moleman combined and you don't need to spend donuts on Arnie Pye, Moleman or the Open Air stage if you don't already have them.

    Good for you! I'm currently on my third crop of corn. With $35M+ in-game cash, I'm at the point in the game now that I like the longer tasks outside events. So I grow corn, do the 2-day Arnie Pie task at Channel 6, send Apu on his seven day shift, etc. The longer the task, the better for me!

    I see a few of my neighbors have grown corn and are collecting taps. I'm curious how quickly they're hitting bonus levels and collecting those free donuts.

    It's worth a try, just to say you did it. I mean that is of course if you have that kind of patience of course :wink:

    Edit: Never mind... I should've read the last page to see you already started :oops:
    Gotta stop posting things before I look fully through a thread.

    I have my corn going right now. I had Marge speeding it up to where it would have been done by Christmas but after the update reset everything I fired her until the Christmas event is over. Would suck to spend all that time and only have it up for a week.

    I tap on it for error three months ago, and I let it grow... Then the tap glitch come out... I've earned 2 million with it :) But I don't know if in three months it will still be available, probably EA will fox it... Or maybe no, try!

    I grew corn once. It was finally ready one day before the Christmas update. I went to work and had 2 handshakes and came home did the update and it wiped out the corn so I waited all that time and never got anything. I was sad.

    Corn = sad
