It is important to note that crop fields can become infested<ref name="Agriculture Development Video">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wq4aiygUhTk</ref>, this will destroy the entire crop.  It also means that if the same crop is planted in the same area again they will have a much greater chance of being infected, as such it is recommended to plant a new type of crop in the field next year.  Also of note is that if you have multiple crops of the same type in fields close together the infestation can spread, be sure to separate crops of the same type to avoid this problem.
 
  
The best course of action during infestation is to order your workers to harvest the crop as soon as possible, this ensures you save some of the drop that was already produced.

A group of prosperous crops.
An infested crop field.

A crop is a cultivated plant that is harvested for consumption, and is planted in a crop field or orchard.

Crops take the form of various foods that are cyclically planted from seeds. Crops found in Banished consist of :

Crops are subject to seasonal conditions and infestations.

Infestation

It is important to note that crop fields can become infested[1], which will destroy the entire crop and generate the icon to the right. Infestation can spread to neighbouring fields bearing the same crop, so it's generally a good idea to use different crops for adjoining fields.


While there has been talk of crop rotation, or lack thereof, influencing infestation rates and soil fertility, no such feature currently exists. It might be added later if a way can be found to make it fun, rather than tedious.[2]

During an infestation, it's best to order your workers to harvest the crop as soon as possible to recover at least some of the food.
