The Crop-Matron is an IndustrialCraft2 machine which tends nearby plants grown on Crops. A Crop-Matron monitors plants in a 9x9x3 area centered on the Crop Matron, and will automatically apply Fertilizer (IndustrialCraft 2), Weed-EX and Water as needed. Fertilizer, Weed-EX and Hydration Cells must be supplied to the Crop-Matron.
Seeds, flowers and the like have to be planted on tilled dirt, with a Crop. It is not possible for the Crop-Matron to use Bone Meal on the plants.
Crossbreeding can occur on tilled dirt with 2 Crops added, if it is adjacent to two plants.
Like many IndustrialCraft 2 machines, the Crop-Matron can be automated. Items piped into the sides will file into the Fertilizer slots, the top into the Hydration Cell slots, and the bottom into the Weed-Ex slots.
