For supporting organic secondary populations, see Bio-farms.
Farms increase the population size a colony can support.
- Farms only support the player's chosen Faction (Bio-farms support all organic populations on a planet: both primary and secondary populations, the player's own civ if they are playing an organic civ, and Minor Factions).
- Each additional farm further increases the population size that can be supported (until the population size reaches the planet's limit).
- Level 1 farms are available to a player from the start of a game (they don't need to be researched).
- Level 2 and 3 farms can be unlocked by performing the relevant research.
- Existing farms can be upgraded to the level above (if that level has been unlocked through research).
- It's not possible to construct a level 2 or 3 farm directly - only a level 1 (which can then be upgraded).
