Generates Bananas each round that convert into game money to spend on more stuff.
~ In-game Description

The Banana Farm is a Support-class tower that was released in the initial release of Bloons TD 6. At base, Banana Farm produces up to 4 bunches of bananas per round, for up to $80 in total per round. Bananas are produced during each round, split evenly by the length of each round in terms of seconds. Bananas are each produced as collectables, each represented by a bunch of bananas, and each bunch of bananas last on the map for up to 15 seconds before rotting into nothing. Banana Farm can be upgraded to produce income in various ways, including producing crates of bananas, storing money in a bank account, and hands-off pickup of bananas.

It costs $1,060 on Easy, $1,250 on Medium, $1,350 on Hard, and $1,500 on Impoppable by default.

Description[]

The Banana Farm initially begins as a banana palm in the middle of an open crate filled with dirt. The palm tree has 4 leaves and two bunches of bananas.

The Banana Farm has made a return in BTD6, with various new ways to gain income. Among these is a way for Banana Farms to collect income automatically without the need for a Monkey Farmer (which is also released to BTD6). One other interesting change is that it now has abilities; it has got an ability to loan $10,000 with $10,000 loan interest and another stronger ability to give $10,000 instantly.

Initially, a Banana Farm produces 4 bananas per round worth $20 each. It can be upgraded for further benefits. Each path provides a unique benefit for the Banana Farm.

Path 1 is built for pure increased banana production. The first two upgrades give two extra bananas each, for $40 more income overall. The new Tier 3 upgrade on Path 1, Banana Plantation, produces 16 bananas per round. Banana Research Facility, like BTD5, exchanges bananas for 5 higher value crates worth $300 per crate. Banana Central produces even more income per crate, from $300 to $1200, along with a boost of 25% more income for all Banana Research Facilities on screen.

Path 2 is built for increased utility for income production. Starting off is Long Life Bananas, which allows bananas to last for 30 seconds instead of 15 seconds, leaving more time to pick up bananas later on. Valuable Bananas supports the amount of income gained for each banana. Monkey Bank, like BTD5, stores money in the bank to gain extra interest for the localized bank account per round, and can be withdrawn whenever needed. IMF Loan is a more powerful version of the Monkey Bank that adds a special ability which provides an instant $9000 loan at the cost of 50% less income, boosting further investments whenever necessary. The final upgrade on this path, Monkey-Nomics, removes the loan penalty whenever activating its special ability.

Path 3 is a new path that is built primarily on ease of income gain. EZ Collect is all about providing an easier time collecting bananas, as well as providing an automatic half-income compensation for expired bananas. Banana Salvage improves compensation to 85% value, as well as increasing the sell price of the farm itself. Marketplace eliminates the need to pick up bananas completely, while the later upgrades Central Market and Monkey Wall Street provide extra income-generating benefits that all other Banana Farm upgrades lack.

Target Priorities[]

Banana Farms do not have a set target priority. Instead, all Farms produce income-generating items. Banana Farms produce a set number of collectable items worth in-game cash each round, distributed evenly throughout the length of the round. For all Farms other than Banks and Marketplaces, bananas are produced sporadically around its radius, similarly to Spike Factory's "Normal" targeting. Banks and Marketplaces simply "spawn" income, and Banks store them inside their bank account until manually collected with the "Collect" button in their upgrade HUD. Banks also have a "Collect All" to empty all Banks at once.

Strategy[]

See also: Banana Farm (BTD6)/Strategies

Summary[]

The Banana Farm's goal is to generate more money, having no offense and only offering ways to efficiently make and collect money. Calculating the best time to safely start a Banana Farm or upgrade it is key for all stages of the game, alongside an effective way to manage all external resources such as micromanagement and looking ahead at future rounds. As a mostly round-based income generator that splits income packets across evenly distributed intervals over a given round, it is advised to be quick whenever initiating an act of income-farming or switching up farming routes.

Micromanaging the Farms, such as picking up bananas regularly, is necessary to take full advantage of the snowballing effect of income generation; with proper micromanagement and continual expansion of income-farming by extra Farms and upgrades, opportunities for accessing powerful upgrades opens up greatly, which can quickly decide the fate of the player throughout critical stages of the game. During the process of building up Farms, watch for important rounds to avoid getting caught off with over-farming from lacking defensive prowess. After building enough income from at least a few early-placed Farms, a hybridized offense-and-income tower, such as Merchantman or Bloon Trap, can be added to fight off the bloons in combination with income generation, which can also aid in speeding the farming process.

For further details on the farming curve for Banana Farms and other income generators, see the page Income Farming (BTD6).

Tips[]

  • Start with 0-0-0 Farm as soon as it is ready, being the second-earliest possible income generator in the entire game, second to the hero Benjamin (if available as selected hero).
    • If Benjamin is the currently selected hero, start with him first and then save up for a 0-0-0 Farm. Alter the saveup strategy if using Geraldo's Rare Quincy Action Figure for income. Otherwise, start with 0-0-0 Farm to kickstart the flow of bonus income.
  • There are only two Farm upgrades that rely primarily on time-based income: IMF Loan and Monkey-Nomics. Both of these have a thing in common: activated abilities that produce income.
  • Most Banana Farm upgrades purely involve income. However, Monkey Wall Street is a unique Farm upgrade that can actually interact with the defenses in a way; it autocollects all nearby collectables, including Bloon Traps and XXXL Traps, and it can always generate extra lives at the end of each round too.
  • The first two tiers of each upgrade path of the Banana Farm provide basic farming benefits.
    • Increased Production, Greater Production, and Valuable Bananas generate more income, while the other T2 and below upgrades provide miscellaneous benefits, mostly convenience and niche income-generating value.
    • Banana Salvage provides a new dimension to the farming curve by applying bonus sellback to the upgraded Farm. This adds a potential short-term advantage by netting more money from selling than without buying this upgrade.
    • Long Life Bananas and EZ Collect provide purely convenience to banana pickups. Strategies involving these specific upgrades are less than ideal, and are mainly geared to ease-of-use for the player more than competitive strategy.

Further Strategy[]

Banana Farms are quite one-dimensional in what their underlying goal is: to produce efficient income at the given circumstances. Because of this, it is important to evaluate the cost-efficiency of each Banana Farm and their crosspaths.

From the table below, we observe the most efficient way to generate money is the farm with 2-3-0 upgrades, which provides 700$/round. However, the drawback is that the money can only be used after 10 rounds, after the bank is full, as opposed to the other versions of the farm which allows the money to be used immediately after it is generated. Furthermore, banks and marketplaces cannot benefit from Geraldo's Fertilizer unlike the top path banana farm which can benefit from the fertilizer which increases its production by 25% but you need to collect them. When crosspathed with Long Life Bananas, the Banana Central changes appearance. They are one of the only Tier 5 upgrades to do this. Bananas from the top upgrade path must manually be collected, which is the disadvantage to the top path farm. However, this can be easily solved with a Banana Farmer, and a Monkey Wall Street is also capable of collecting these bananas (albeit for a high cost, and limited in how many can be placed).

21.0
  • NERF Overclocked Banana Farms give 66.7% more income instead of 100%.
23.0
Monkey Bank is just too stonks even without Benjamin. This nerf shouldn't hurt it too much, but will make it snowball a little bit slower and balance with the other paths better.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • NERF Monkey Bank price increased ($3,300 → $3,500).
28.0
Banana Farm's xx2 upgrade is the inferior crosspath, so we've amped up the utility with the lazy aspect so that if it's going to be inferior for production, it's at least going to be extra lazy & less far behind. Additionally, as Monkey Wall Street is the least interesting T5 Banana Farm & doesn't benefit from the Healthy Bananas MK it will now produce a base amount of lives each round
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • BUFF 0-3-2 Monkey Bank now autocollects at the end of the round it fills with no delay
  • BUFF EZ Collect now also salvages Bananas for 50% if uncollected
  • BUFF Banana Salvage, salvage value is now increased from 50% -> 85%
  • BUFF Banana Salvage, now also increases this farm's sellback rate from 70% -> 80%
  • BUFF Monkey Wall Street now also generates 5 lives per round
    • The patch notes erroneously state it generates 10 lives per round; this was fixed in 28.2.
31.0
Partially to help a little with tedious endgame farm collection in ranked boss events, or any other use you may desire for it, we have added a non-power form of easy banana collection. However we do not want to trivialize the intended downside of opting for a more micro intensive farm path too much, so this is still restricted behind a low-range tier 5 upgrade.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • BUFF Monkey Wall Street now collects nearby bananas/crates as a Monkey Farmer would
34.0
Bank is a little too much more efficient than any other Banana Farm option, this price nerf should leave it so it really somewhat still is but not so far ahead.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • NERF Monkey Bank price increased $3500 → $3800
35.0
For sake of consistency we want Monkey Bank to increase in cash generation when used with sources that externally buff generation so everything works as expected, however along with this buff the current power of IMF loan on this path already feels too strong so we are lowering that power for IMF Loan in exchange.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • Change [Undocumented bug] Banks now make 180 cash per round by default, but are also affected by Valuable Bananas and by extension, MoreValuableBananasIcon More Valuable Bananas.
  • BUFF x3x and above Monkey Bank will now increase in cash generation with external buffs
    • [Undocumented] This does not affect the cash granted from abilities of IMF Loan or Monkey-Nomics.
  • NERF x4x IMF Loan cash granted $10,000 → 9000
    • NERF BackroomDealsIcon Backroom Deals monkey knowledge IMF Loan bonus cash reduced from 2000 → 1000
  • Change [Undocumented bug] xx2 and above farms do not have a cash generated counter from autocollected income. Does not affect 032 and above farms. End-of round cash from xx5 still adds to the tower's cash counter.
  • BUFF xx5 Monkey Wall Street range increased from 40 → 60
    • [Note]: This change is primarily visual as autocollection range remains at 60. However, this is technically a buff, since it affects Advanced Intel as well.
40.0
The current power of xx5 Village combined with previous nerfs to Middle Farm have it currently feeling underappreciated for farm profits, some slight price adjustment.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • BUFF Monkey Bank cost reduced ($3800 → $3650)
  • BUFF IMF Loan cost reduced ($7500 → $7200)
42.0
Banana Central’s current level of buffability for a single tower makes it quite exceptional of a cash producer right now so it is increasing in cost. Players have made it clear that for Boss Events the current cooldown on IMF Loan regularly puts it into a position where timing is frustratingly tight in order to maximize profits when farming with banks, so we’ve agreed to loosen up on this cooldown to help with this issue. Finally, the Banana Salvage crosspath is also being increased in cost to reflect the current huge value granted to it with sellback metas where it is used.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • NERF Banana Central price increased from $100,000 to $115,000
  • BUFF IMF Loan cooldown reduced from 90s to 85s
  • NERF Banana Salvage cost increased $200 to $400
  • BUFF Marketplace cost reduced from $2,900 to $2,700
43.0
Monkey Wall Street’s cost is being increased, but in return its special bonuses have been improved with more life generation and much more range for Banana collection.
~ Ninja Kiwi
  • NERF Monkey Wall Street cost increased from $60,000 to $70,000
  • BUFF Monkey Wall Street range increased from 60 to 75
  • BUFF Monkey Wall Street lives per round increased from 10 to 15

  • Change x4x IMF loan name corrected to IMF Loan
  • NERF Resolved a bug that caused Collecting All from multiple x3x Banks or higher to only target repayment back towards a single active IMF Loan
    • This is a nerf because it means that Collecting All cannot have multiple banks bypass Debt after 35.0, as before 35.0, they did not all need to pay debt when the debt of one is payed off.
    • This also applies to selling an IMF loan with bank deposits.
  • Change Candy Corn and Christmas Present trophy skins can no longer be selected at the same time since only one can apply. Bug originated in 34.0.

Trivia[]

  • The Banana Farm and Monkey Village are the only two towers unable to attack Bloons as a base tower.
    • However the Monkey Village can pop Bloons with Primary Expertise, making the Banana Farm the only tower without any upgrades to pop Bloons.
    • The Banana Farm was formerly the only tower that was completely unable to pop Bloons. However, the introduction of Bottle of 'Gerry's Fire' Hot Sauce allows it to host a sub-tower capable of popping Bloons.
    • However, even if using Gerry's Hot Sauce, the Banana Farm will not display a pop count, making it the only tower without a pop count.
  • BTD6 is the first game to include the Banana Farm without having a Banana Republic upgrade.
  • In BTD6, the Banana Farm has six upgrades with the word "banana" in their names. Three other upgrades have the word "monkey". Two upgrades have the word "central" in their names, one of which has both "banana" and "central". There are six Banana Farm upgrades in the game that lack any of these three words.
  • The tower retains its name and role from the Bloons TD 4 and Bloons TD 5 generation with significant additions. It did not receive any teasers prior to release, but it was first shown when the game was available to select YouTubers several days before BTD6's official release date.
  • According to Ninja Kiwi's 12th July 2024 blog, the monkeys tried Banana Bombs but decided that they aren't as efficient as other fruity explosives, lacking the "same a-peel".
