|“||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.

Produces 2 more bananas, increasing total production of bananas from 6 to 8, totalling $160 per round instead of $120 if all bananas are collected. For Banks, it gives two more income packets, from 6 to 7, totalling $310 per round instead of $270, while also decreasing value of individual income packets to equal the new non-deposited income per round. For Marketplaces and above, banana production is increased from 18 to 20.
Like all Banana Farms, Greater Production generates bananas evenly throughout a round with respect to bloon send duration on a percentage basis. On a "short" bloon send round, specifically those with only one type of bloon send (e.g. Round 17 Regrow Yellows, Round 76 Regrow Ceramics, and all standard blimp debut rounds except DDTs and Bosses), all bananas produced in the round are pushed out very rapidly.
Greater Production produces bananas that are tossed erratically around its range. Like most Banana Farm upgrades, Long Life Bananas lacks any real targeting priority.
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.
