I don't understand the boosts for evolving, incubating, etc. Whenever I use a boost it doesn't seem to do anything.

It speeds up the timer count down for all affected buildings, but only for 1 hour. You'll still see 1 hour counting down, but the time will actually pass faster. ie. a 10x boost will mean a 1 hour crop will finish in 6 minutes (60 minutes divided by 10). When the boost ends, the timer will start going at normal speed again. If you plant a Diamondate 5 hour crop with a 2x boost, the crop will finish in 4 hours and 30 minutes. 1 hour gets divided by 2 (the 30 minutes), but the remaining 4 hours will tick down at normal speed.

The 5hr Diamondates with a 2x boost will have 3hr remaining after
1hr. A 2x boost means 1hr x2 will
be deducted after 1hr. The boost timer icon counts down from 1hr after activation. The timer on the farms counts down at 2x for 1hr.

How can you tell how many boosts you have available? Is there a limit to how many you can store? Grateful for info.

Just tap the boost option when you select any affected building. You'll see an expanded list of the boosts available and how many you have. Tap the relevant option to actually activate the boost. YOu can't check these numbers if you have a boost active though.

Just to clarify, that makes it a 4 hour harvest time total. The 2x boosts are practically useless in my opinion because they only take one hour off of your overall total. And I don't have any 10x boosts. Not even sure how to win them. I guess i would have to be in the gold league?

Yes, gold league;
1st -2nd get 4(x10) farm boosts and 4(x10) egg/hatching boosts

3rd-6th get 2(x10) farm boosts and 3(x10) egg/hatching boosts.

The farm boost one only works in one farm of my farms, all other cant start it , the farm is regularly the top-right-most one.

Once you activate a farm boost it runs on all your farms. When you have a boost going, say a 5x farm boost tap each farm to show timer and they all should be counting down by 5secs on 5x boost, 10 secs on 10x boost. That's how you can tell if the boost is or isn't working on the other farms.

Egg boost is same, all nests will speed up hatching, not just the one you activated the boost on.
