This calculator determines the expected yield, cost, and profit (or lack thereof) of planting and picking herbs on a per patch basis. It assumes:

  • All Prices are based on the Grand Exchange Market Watch, including seeds, herbs, composts, and potions.
  • The cost of a Juju farming potion is based on the cheapest per dose item available. It does not take into account visiting more than one herb patch per dose; costs can be reduced this way.
  • If any of the Master farmer outfits are chosen, cleaned herbs are harvested and taken into account for profit calculations.
  • The price of Goutweed, whilst not having a specific Grand Exchange value, has an inherent value based on the Exchange value of the herbs it provides when exchanged with Sanfew. An expected value can be obtained based on the probabilities listed on the herb page.
  • Expected Yield based on Negative Binomial Distribution of
  • The combination of Patch bomb, Speedy Growth, and Rapid Growth is allowed, and they do not conflict with each other.
  • The rune cost of Rapid Growth is always 5,973 coins, which is the cost of three nature runes and three soul runes.
  • The number of actions is determined by the harvest lives and farming cape perk, but not any other items like patch bomb or liquid patch bomb, as their effects are obvious.
  • Rounding Down is used on all base chances as is expected with RuneScript and as described by Jagex Moderators[1].
