Welcome to the Farming Simulator Academy! Let's take a look at all the icons you may encounter in the game and what they mean. You can also download a printable overview sheet, if it helps you.
The icons for crops and greenery are basically everywhere to be found. They display if certain machines are designed to handle those crops, or where they are growing on the map.
For example, if you're shopping for a harvester and a fitting header, the respective crop icon needs to be displayed for both machines - indicating, that they are suited for this crop.
Icons like those for yield improvement are especially important when buying a fertilizer spreader, for example. They indicate, whether a spreader is able to handle solid or organic fertilizer. Some spreaders may also display the lime icon - so you can apply lime with those, too.
You should always pay attention to the icons displayed in the shop. When you're buying a tool to attach to the tractor, the required power is always important to keep in mind, for example.
Product icons are related to production chains. There are factories in the game that can produce various goods, like bread or even furniture. They're pretty self-explanatory.
Icons associated with animals are displayed when buying animal pens via the build mode, for example. They indicate which animals they can hold, what type of resources they take in to feed the animals, and which goods they produce in return.
