The best way to tackle this level is from the bottom so that it gives the crops more falling space.
Although there are a few patches of grass, they cannot really help much, so you need to try to make the crops cascade by planning your moves carefully. Its not as easy as it sounds. Always match the crops with the highest points first and I would advise making your eggs crack and making your chicks as your priority.
Once they are out of the way you can concentrate on gathering the other crops.
