## How herb farming is calculated

${\displaystyle AverageYield=Hitpoints/(1-Chance)}$

• ${\displaystyle Hitpoints={\begin{cases}3&\quad {\text{with no compost}}\\4&\quad {\text{with regular compost}}\\5&\quad {\text{with supercompost}}\\\end{cases}}}$
• ${\displaystyle Chance={\frac {FarmingLevel-HerbLevel+10{\text{(Only if using magic secateurs)}}}{100}}}$
• Chance is capped at 50%

From this, we get the following, assuming level 99 farming and using Magic secateurs with supercompost:

Herb Herb Level Yield
Toadflax 38 10
Avantoe 50 10
Kwuarm 56 10
Snapdragon 62 9.4
Cadantine 67 8.6
Lantadyme 73 7.8
Dwarf weed 79 7.1
Torstol 85 6.6
Fellstalk 91 6.1

Using this information, we can calculate the expected income per patch:
