Seeds are an item used in farming.

Obtaining[edit]

Grass[edit]

Seeds can be obtained from breaking grass, which yields 0 to 1 seed.

Farming[edit]

Harvesting fully-grown wheat yields from 0 to 3 seeds per tile harvested (about 1.5 seeds/tile harvested on average).

Pocket Edition[edit]

Seeds can be obtained by using a hoe on grass blocks like at Minecraft Indev.

Usage[edit]

Crop[edit]

Different stages of crop growth.

Seeds can be placed in farmland by right-clicking, where they will grow through eight stages. When left alone, seeds planted on farmland will grow to become wheat, which can be harvested by the player. Planted seeds need at least light level 9 in the block above them to grow, or must be exposed to the sky.

Crops will grow faster if the farmland they are planted in is hydrated. Bone Meal can also be used to increase the speed of growth by causing the seeds to randomly increase their stage by 1 to 7.

Breaking the final stage produces 0 to 3 seeds and 1 wheat. If they are harvested early, they will drop seeds without wheat. The more developed crops are, the more seeds they are likely to drop.

Farmland may be trampled (reverted to a dirt block) if the player or any mob (passive or hostile) jumps on top of it. If trampled, the crops have the same drop rates they would normally have.

Breeding[edit]

Seeds are used to breed chickens. When two chickens are each fed seeds, they enter "love mode." If a chicken in "love mode" finds another chicken in "love mode," the two chickens will "kiss" for a few seconds, then a smaller chicken will appear, which will earn you experience points. After the baby is spawned, it will follow the adult chickens until it too is in its adult form, unless you hit the baby.

History[edit]

Indev
February 6, 2010 Seeds added. Can be planted on tilled soil, and had a chance of dropping while tilling a Grass Block.
Beta
1.6 Seeds can no longer be tilled from a Grass Block. They are now found by destroying Tall Grass, or by harvesting fully-grown Wheat.
1.8 Wheat seeds were named "seeds" because wheat seeds were the only kind of seeds at the time, before Melon Seeds and Pumpkin Seeds in this update.
Official release
1.4.2 12w36a Chickens now use wheat seeds instead of wheat to breed.
1.8 14w02a Wheat crop block was removed from the /give command.
Pocket Edition Alpha
0.4.0 Added seeds.
Console Edition
TU1 Added seeds.
Pi Edition
0.1.1 Added seeds.

Trivia[edit]

  • Despite the introduction of other types of seed, wheat seeds are still only called "Seeds" in the game.
