Seeds are items used in farming.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Grass[edit | edit source]

Seeds can be obtained from breaking grass, which yields 0 to 1 seed. If harvested with a Fortune enchanted tool the drop rate from grass is increased.

Villages[edit | edit source]

Village farm plots have a 50% chance of being wheat crops.

Farming[edit | edit source]

Harvesting fully-grown wheat yields from 0 to 3 seeds per crop harvested (about 1.6 seeds/crop harvested on average).

Pocket Edition[edit | edit source]

Seeds can be obtained by using a hoe on grass blocks. As of 0.12.1[upcoming], seeds can no longer be obtained in this way.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Crop[edit | edit source]

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 a light level of 9 in the block above them to grow or 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 | edit source]

Seeds are used to breed chickens. When a chicken is fed a seed it enters "love mode." If a chicken in "love mode" finds another chicken in "love mode," the two chickens will "kiss" (or come together) for a moment, and a smaller baby chicken and some experience points will appear. After the baby is spawned, it will follow an adult chicken until it grows into adult form unless it is hit by the player which will cause it to run around but eventually come back to an adult chicken. You can feed a baby chicken seeds to make it grow up faster, where each time you feed it, 10% is taken off the remaining time.
