The agriculture zone is low density industrial and requires only power and road connections to grow. With SimCity 4 Rush Hour installed, farms will contribute jobs and money to the city. By using the special zone for farms, you do not have to worry about other industries buying out the zones and losing the farms. You can keep your realistic country towns Agriculture Rewards Farms do not provide a lot of positives to your city. They do earn money for the city (only with "Rush Hour" installed) and provide a few low paying jobs. The biggest positive is the Farmer's Market and State Fair rewards. The Farmer's Market reward provides a demand cap relief of 20,000 RS and 150,000 RSS. You can bulldoze your farms, and still keep the Farmer's Market, but it will not be as effective. Farms & Pollution Farms produce a lot of water pollution. Once water pollution arrives, you need to plant trees to help offset the effects of pollution. Farms near water will make the water turn brown. It's important to note that agriculture zones are not required for your city to grow. Agriculture Downloads An agriculture mod that will multiply jobs in the farming zones is available at SimTropolis. RCI farming ploppables can be downloaded at the same site.
