Farming[edit]

When a fully-grown wheat crop is harvested, it drops 1 wheat and 0 to 3 wheat seeds. A wheat crop has a total of eight stages (0-7) from the time it is planted until it can be harvested. If a crop is harvested before it is fully grown, it drops one seed. Wheat needs light to grow; a seed is destroyed if planted without light. Harvesting with a Fortune-enchanted tool increases the number of seeds dropped but does not increase the yield of wheat.

Drops[edit]

Foxes that are holding wheat have a chance of 8.5%‌‌[JE only]/100%‌‌[BE only] to drop the wheat they are holding upon death. Alternatively, the player can drop a food item, causing the fox to drop the wheat.

Usage[edit]

Food[edit]

Using wheat to lead a cow.

Holding wheat in your hand causes cows, sheep, goats[upcoming: 1.16.200], and mooshrooms that are close by to follow you, until you stop holding the wheat or create too large a distance between them, thus leading them to lose interest.

Wheat may be used to breed cows, sheep, goats, and mooshrooms by first herding two of them together and then using the wheat on them to begin "Love Mode."

Wheat can heal a horse 1♥ health or lower its temper by 3% when attempting to tame it. It can also decrease the time it takes for a foal to grow by 20 seconds.

Similarly, wheat can heal a llama 2♥ health, and it decreases the time it takes a baby llama to grow by 10 seconds.

Note: the narrator demonstrates at 0:56 that walking over wheat can destroy the crop and un-till the land. This is outdated: since version JE 1.1, wheat can be destroyed only by a player or mob jumping on it or falling on it.
