The Turret Growth Aura is an Item that allows players to have their Turrets increase the growth rate of nearby Crops.

General Description[edit | edit source]

The Turret Growth Aura is an Item that can be found within common locations, including choice enemy Camps, given by Spouses, and rarely as a reward from Seasonal Festivals. Upon being picked up, it will create a purple, Crop growth boosting effect centered around the all of the players Turrets, including the Curret, as well as Scarecrows. The effect can be seem in action through the small particle affects that will appear. This boost will double the growth rate of all Crops within a 5x5 range around the mentioned objects while they are nearby. If any of those objects are removed that given Crop will stop being boosted until the object is put back within range.

Comparison[edit | edit source]

Several other items are capable of boosting Crop growth, including Growth Aura, Harvest Moon, Bees, Hummingbirds, and Rain Scrolls. Compared to any of these, Turret Growth Aura can be utilized potentially more than other versions. This is because of how Turret Growth Aura serves as an upgrade to Turrets and Scarecrows, which can be potentially collected in large amounts from Camps and from the Flower Merchant. In addition, Turrets and Scarecrows have the added benefit of being able to defend the Farm without the use of other Items. This in turn can make it more preferable to use this Item in favor of other methods. However, unlike all of the other mentioned methods, Turret Growth Item effectively requires the sacrifice of some farming space in order for this to function. Therefore, players will have to choose between boosting their Crops or farming a greater amount depending on their current land availability.
