You can either craft or buy most seeds from JojaMart and Pierre’s General Store. Although purchasing them won’t cost you a fortune, it’s still a waste of gold if you constantly buy them. 

To save 20g or more, you should get a Seed Maker. This machine duplicates certain in-game crop bases. If you want to access this benefit, this guide will help you craft and learn to use it effectively.

What’s a Seed Maker?

A Seed Maker (SM) is a piece of refining equipment that replicates your harvested crops’ sources and some foraged items. It produces one to three copies of your chosen yield, but there’s a 97.51% chance of only getting two pieces of the same variety.

To use it, you’ll need to place a reproducible crop in the equipment and wait for it to process in 20 minutes.

Aside from getting your desired item, there’s also a 1.99% probability of acquiring one to four pieces of Mixed Seeds with this machine. And if you’re lucky, you may get a pack of Ancient Seeds (0.5%).

Suppose you want to avoid buying new seeds from local stores. You need to sacrifice at least 51% of your harvest. It helps you obtain fresh ones for the next growing season.

You can use this formula to determine the classification and amount of seeds the machine would produce: 

(Number Days Played) + (Unique Game ID) / 2 + [X-tile Location of SM (LoSM)] + (Y-tile LoSM) × 77 + (Time of Day)

Note that this isn’t based on luck. So if you’re eager to get more yield, try following the equation.
