North American Agriculture Discussion

#1 Post by flight50 » 08 Mar 2020 01:25

I have mentioned a time or two on here that I was interesting in starting up an Agricultural thread. One thing for sure is that as SCS moves out of the Mountain States and into the Great Plains and beyond, the more Agriculture freight can be added. Ag freight can be huge for ATS for new and existing states. I am sure some things can even be used for ETS2 as well. But since I am American, I am posting here on the ATS side of the forum as its easier research for me to bring forth things I am aware of.

I am not in the Ag business by any means so I am sure I will be missing some things. This is were you guys come into play. Add whatever you can to this discussion pertaining to anything Ag related. What I do intend to accomplish is bring awareness and add cargo and more....cargo and more....cargo, lol. If we provide as much info as we can, this gives SCS ideas to increase cargo and provide a much needed cargo library for ATS. Some things may even be more appropriate for staged models scattered thru out the ATS map but SCS can determine that. So what do you see on farms or other establishments.

If there is anything I am missing (which I expect) or anything additional that you may feel can come to the ATS Agricultural industry, please feel free to add to this discussion. I am adding the common things that has the best chances to make the game. Share pics, elaborate on why you think ATS should have what you provide, what trailers are used, where can this cargo be found, are you a trucker or former trucker with knowledge. What have you hauled from where and to where. Anything and everything is welcome to spread awareness.

Agriculture is the science/art of cultivating livestock and plants and there is plenty of it to go around in ATS. There are several branches that falls under these two parts. These parts are logging, dairies, raising fish and animals, growing crops,hatcheries, ranches and the many different farms across the lands. With this, also comes the equipment and supplies to keep all this going. Lets get started shall we.

The following charts are old but the graphic and spread is what I am trying to bring awareness to

Fertilizer - credit to @Larry71490 for Fertilizer idea

US Fertilizer Map
Fertilizer Info
Fertilizer Graphs by largest producers

Nitrogen is spread all over the US. There are Nitrogen locations in 4 of the states we currently have in ATS. Washington, California, Arizona and Nevada. All could be easy adds as there really are not that many locations per state.

Phosphate is currently in only one current state but Idaho has one as well as an upcoming dlc. Phosphate is spread a about bit more with most of it being along the Gulf of Mexico and a few inland in the MidWest and the East.

Potasium (Potash) is the rarest of all. Its only in 3 states. 2 states are currently in ATS. 3 locations in Utah and 3 locations in New Mexico. I honestly though Utah would get this at release. The Salt Flats has a location in Wendover (which is in the game) and in Moab. Ogden also has a location but the GSL is not in game. Hopefully Utah can get this. For NM, perhaps when Texas comes, Southeastern NM can develop more for both fertilizers and for the oil industry. Southeast NM is in the same boat as Southeast Washington. More can come with the adjacent state.

Shipping includes truck, train and boat. In ATS we can get ports, rail roads, farms, chemical plants and retailer are all locations to haul NPK to and from each location.

Can't forget the fertilizer and seeds for all the crops. I use to haul grain and fertilizer. Mainly fertilizer such as potash, dap, anhydrous ammonia, etc.

I feel Nogales and Yuma deserve a revamp with a produce warehouse as produce of all kinds come in from Mexico.

A California revamp of the central valley is in order too.

They need to add in Salinas as a lot of produce comes from there.

California is big into nut production.

Companies that come to mind is Taylor Farms, Del Monte, Dole, etc.

When we get to Texas Del Monte is big in Galveston. Pulled a lot of bananas out of there to Denver.
