Hello, I've perused several wiki's and boards trying to find out if Sugar Cane cane be auto farmed using the Planter. The Technic Forums indicate this is possible here. It was tagged as updeated as recently as June 7, 2014. Several other wiki's have all said this is possible. My experience with 1.2.9e says otherwise. I have just a minimal setup - 3x3 squares. I am using sand. The "farm" is surrounded by water. The Planter is powered and under a block of sand. I have 1 1/2 stacks of sugar cane in the inventory and have set the "planting pattern" to a ring pattern. One is prohibited from planting a sugar cane anywhere unless it is directly adjacent to water. I did this because I can't get water adjacent to the center square and wanted to forestall any potential problems. The planter, showing a full energy supply, does not plant any sugar cane. Am I doing something wrong? Best Update - the Harvester works and works intelligently. It only takes the middle portion of the sugar cane. It appears that sugar cane is not aided by the Fertilizer. Given this arrangement I just have to hand plant the field once and the harvesting is automatic yet the growth cycle is not accelerated. Still curious why my experience is in conflict with what's in the wiki's. Anyone else able to use the Planter with Sugar Cane?
