Reed seed detail

A reed seed is a Farming seed from which reeds can be grown in a hops patch. As with all hops (except jute), four seeds are needed to plant one patch. It can be protected by paying a farmer 15 Asgarnian hops.

Fully-grown reeds produce toads, swamp tar, and swamp lizards when harvested. Roughly 3-5 toad egg sacs, with a chance of receiving 10 swamp tar and/or a swamp lizard per toad egg sac harvested, are gained per crop. Five toad egg sacs are received if supercompost is used, on rare occasions 6 and sometimes 7 toad sacs can be received. if the hops patch was treated with Supercompost prior to the seeds being planted. Harvesting yields 190 farming experience per sac. Reeds harvested on Entrana will only yield swamp tar and toad egg sacs.

Doing a run between all four hops patches, players can expect to make anywhere between 199,440 (if no tar or lizards are received) to 376,460 (the theoretical maximum with 20 swamp lizards). This does not take into account the cost of any seeds, supercompost, and asgarnian hops if purchased, which altogether total -78,520. By only using the seeds the minimum profit/loss from a full farm run is 156,656, with a maximum of 333,676.
