I was trying to crossbreed some high attribute potatoes in IC2 experimental 2.8.197.
I learned that crops with high attribute may disappear in a few seconds after being planted if you don't fertilize or water it. However, a crop matron can not solve this as its work cycle is much longer than the time for the crop to disappear. I can't solve this manually either, because I cannot water it manually.
Right now my only solution is to plant some sugar canes, wait for them to be fertilized and watered, and replace them with my potatoes. A waste of resource and time.
Is there a better way?
