While Trudy provides you with Biocrust during the “One Small Step for Sandrockers” mission, it’s limited and used mainly for that mission alone.

No one in or around town sells Biocrust, so your options are slim in terms of acquiring the material.

Some may wonder what the prospect of digging up the particular farming equipment is. In truth, Biocrust exists so that Straw Grids won’t have to. You’re basically skipping a step by relying on the new and improved form of soil. Straw is out, Biocrust is in.

Regarding Zeke, he’ll also be the only resident who can request commissions for the Biocrust. With a value of only 10 Gols, using the higher-level soil for farming is your best course of action. Otherwise, you might want to store whatever soil you’re not using for another time. Other residents will request commissions for items that require some stretch of farming on your end.
