Wheat is a block encountered in farming.
Village farm plots have a 50% chance of being wheat crops.
Wheat can be placed on farmland by right-clicking using wheat seeds, where it grows through eight stages. When left alone, wheat grows to become harvestable by the player or farmer villagers. Wheat requires a light level of 10 or greater to continue growing. If the light level is 7 or below, the wheat un-plants itself ("pop off"). It is not possible to plant wheat if the light level is too low.
Farmland may be trampled (reverted to a dirt block) if the player or any mob (passive or hostile) falls onto the farmland from 1 block or more (i.e jumping or walking off a ledge). If trampled, the crops have the same drop rates they would normally have.
If falling sand or gravel falls on wheat or any other crop, the falling sand/gravel is destroyed because crops are a non-solid block.
