As is, it is stupid to make and plant seeds as it cost more plants than it will produce.

Farming is a net loss at least until you get living off the land 3 and can be even then.

Takes 5 plants to get 1 seed.
 

Say you have 10 planted crops (cost 50 plants)
You harvest and get 40 plants (enough for 8 seeds)
You get back 5 seeds to replant if you get the 50%
You have to use 25 of the 40 crop to replant, more if you were unlucky.

So for 10 plants you end up getting 15 usable plants.  1.5 plants per planted crop.

Say you have living off the land 3

Say you have 10 planted crops (cost 50 plants)
You harvest and get 60 plants (enough for up to 6 seeds)

You get back 5 seeds.  So to replant you only have to use 25 of the plants.

So for 10 plants you get 3.5 plants per harvest

 

Note first 15 plants I harvested I got only 4 seeds back.  So I'm not even confident about the 50% seed drop is working.

 

Harvesting planted crops should either 
A) Always return a seed

or 

B) Just revert back to the seed version of the planted crop.

Takes 5 plants to get 1 seed.
At living off the land 1 you will get enough plants to make a new seed ever 2.5 harvests 

Say you have 10 planted crops (cost 50 plants)
You harvest and get 20 plants (enough for 4 seeds)
You get back 5 seeds to replant.  Now you are at only 9 planted crops and you've got ZERO plants to use.

Say you have living off the land 3

Say you have 10 planted crops (cost 50 plants)
You harvest and get 30 plants (enough for up to 6 seeds)

You get back 5 seeds.  So to replant you only have to use 25 of the plants.

 

If you don't drop below the 50% seed return it means you only get, at Living off the land 3, .5 plants to use for food per planted crop.

When you get unlucky and don't get a seed returned every other plant then you'll be in a negative loop.

A) Always return a seed

or 

B) Just revert back to the seed version of the planted crop.
