Hello, is it correct that i can use one of the sow actions to sow grain on a field that already contains grain planted in a previous round? I am asking because it is not clearly stated in the rules that the field needs to be empty in order to do so.
Hello, I have not played the agricola: familienspiel yet, but in all other Uwe Rosenberg games where you can plant things on fields, they have to be empty to sow on it. I'm really sure, that this is true to this game. Also it makes sense for the gameplay (and in reality too ). I looked through the rule book from the outlook games homepage, but I didn't read any rule that confirm that. Maybe Uwe thought that this rule is self explaining.

No, in order to sow grain the field has to be empty! Bearing in mind that remaining grain on you fields is at the end of the game each worth on point this action would otherwise be way too overpowered.
While I agree that it would make sense that the fields need to be empty, there is actually no rule in the rules that would actually forbid it. Neither in the german nor in the english version of the rulebook.
I have no idea if its an oversight or if its acutally intended to make the rules easier.
I house ruled it that the fields need to be empty.
