Many of these strategies can be done together at the same time, be sure to plan your strategy well. For quick cash, farming is not the best option, but will be a good option for players with much patience.

Effectiveness Level requirement Details Other requirements
***** Level 1 Talk to Arhein at Catherby (do not trade). Ask about pineapples. Buy 15 of them, which cost 2 coins each. Put the pineapples in an empty compost bin (there is one just north of Catherby. After approximately one hour, they will turn into Supercompost, and about 15 bucketfuls can be collected from one load, as well as Farming experience. The Supercompost can then be sold for about 961 coins each.
***** Level 1 Plant and sell Potatos, which sell for around 75 coins each, as they are widely used for various cooking items. The seeds cost around 2 coins each and you need 3 for each allotment. Cooking the potatoes on a range (requires level-7 Cooking) will increase their value to 277.
***** Level 1 Purchase compost potions from the Grand Exchange at a price of 609 per dose, or buy them from the Vinesweeperminigame. (Single-dose is best, if available, since that provides more empty vials to be sold back to the GE to offset the purchase price. Vials are presently selling at 18 empty or 51 filled) Make normal compost by putting 15 weeds, cabbages, etc. into the compost bins and use a dose of the compost potion on the bins after the compost has finished rotting. The potion will turn the compost into supercompost, which can be sold for 961 coins each.
***** Level 1 Farmers can significantly boost income by running marketable resources from the Farming shops near each farming plot. 10 plant cures are available at a cost of 40 coins each, respawning the full inventory of 10 every minute, so they can be bought with each trip for other items; they sell at 166 coins each for a profit of 1,260 coins per trip. 300 compost are available at a cost of 20-26 coins each, selling at 130 coins each for a profit of 32,100 coins. 100 filled plant pots are available at a cost of 1 coin each, selling at 192 coins each for a profit of 19,100 coins. 30 baskets are available at a cost of 1 coin each, selling at 33 coins each for a profit of 960 coins. (sacks presently do not sell very quickly and are not advised) Trip time (purchase-load/to-bank/back-to-shop) varies with the shop, typically averaging about 50 seconds per load. Total profit, figuring 23 trips to collect all resources, is 81,140 coins daily at each farm shop, for a little under 20 minutes work each.
