|“||Grows 2 MORE extra Banana bunches per round.||”|
|~ In-game description|
Greater Production is the second upgrade of Path 1 for the Banana Farm in BTD6. It allows the Banana Farm to produce 8 bananas, totaling to $160 when all bananas are collected. It also increases Monkey Bank income per round by +$80 compared to no Path 1 upgrades, as well as Central Markets by +$280 compared to no Path 1 upgrades.
It costs $510 on Easy, $600 on Medium, $650 on Hard, and $720 on Impoppable.
Greater Production can be used to improve the income generation of an existing Farm with the Increased Production upgrade. Although a 2-0-0 Farm is very slightly less income-efficient than a 1-0-0, buying the 2-0-0 Farm is more income-efficient than waiting for another round to place a new base Banana Farm. There is seldom reason not to buy this upgrade if Increased Production is already bought.
- Get this upgrade before getting another Banana Farm. Although a 2-0-0 Farm is less cost-effective than a 1-0-0 Farm by cost, it is actually more efficient in the long-run, as waiting for another 0-0-0 Farm wastes potential for extra banana production.
- If there's a good chunk of money, start with placing 1-0-0 Farms before upgrading them to 2-0-0, for the greatest cost-efficiency until higher more efficient upgrades like Monkey Banks or Banana Research Facilities.
- This upgrade in a way corresponds to the old Banana Plantation upgrade in BTD4 and BTD5, but by game mechanics it is more like adding two More Bananas (from BTD4 and BTD5) upgrades.
