Rune Factory: Frontier Crop Profits
Want Money?? Plant These!!
Wondering what the best crops to plant are? This will tell you. I've worked out profits per 3x3 plot, per season (per plot), and per year (per plot). Of course, you can find out how much you can ultimately make in a year by multiplying by the number of plots of each crop you're planting.
NOTE: There are 45 available plots on your farm.
If you have questions, please post it in the feedback box, and I'll try to help you out:)
Crop Profit Chart Intro
The following chart lists, I believe, all the crops in the game, and tells their profits per plot, per season (for one plot) , and per year (one plot). Also, it tells those three if you don't have to buy your seeds (using the seedmaker), and FS is Free Seeds (I know, they aren't really free, but at least you don't have to buy them)
The starred crops are the most profitable crops (one vegetable, one flower) for each season. Also, for the chart to be totally accurate, you must plant your crops on the 30th of the previous season so you get the full 30 days to grow. If you have prosperous zones, this will decrease the time your crops take to grow, thereby possibly increasing the amount of profit you get in the season or year.
Also, note that Pink Cats are the best seasonal crop for summer. But, you should plant pumpkins in the dungeon if you don't want to wait a year to get paid for the clovers.

The "In a Nutshell" Version
Ok, so I'll try to be quick here. Read the spreadsheet screenshot for the full chart if you don't understand how or why these are the best.
NOTE: GET THE SEEDMAKER. The following numbers are the profits when you're making your own seeds. The other numbers are in the chart.
NOTE # 2: When you have money, GREENIFY YOUR CROPS. Higher level crops make even more money. Get each to level 10 if you can by the second year, and have enough level 10 seeds to fill your fields.
Spring: Cabbages make 81600 per 3x3 plot per year (in a dungeon). Also, they are the best crop to plant on your farm in spring at 16320 per plot.
Emery Flowers are the best spring crop for the dungeons at 153600 per year.
Summer: Pumpkins are the best summer crop for your farm at 12000 for the season per plot, and the best for the dungeon at 60000 for the year. At least until you get Gold Pumpkins, which are better by a few thousand.
Clovers make 104000 for the year, and take 60 days to grow.
Autumn: Carrots are the best for the farm at 12960. Eggplant is the best in the dungeon at 57680 for the year.
Autumn Grass makes 104000 for the year, though I'm not sure how to get it.
The best crops on Whale Island are Cabbages and Emery Flowers.
