Wheat seeds[a] are items used in farming.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Harvesting fully-grown wheat yields from 1 to 4 seeds per crop harvested (about 2.5 seeds/crop harvested on average).

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

The looting is calculated by a binomial distribution: a drop is attempted three times with a success rate of around 57% to yield the 0–3 drops. Each level of Fortune enchantment increases the number of attempts by one.

Natural generation[edit]

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

Trading[edit]

Wandering traders sell wheat seeds for an emerald.

Usage[edit]

Crop[edit]

Different stages of crop growth.

Wheat seeds can be placed on farmland by right-clicking, where they grow through eight stages. When left alone, wheat seeds planted on farmland grow to become wheat, which can be harvested by the player. Planted seeds require a light level of 9 or greater to continue growing. If the light level is 7 or below, the crops un-plant themselves ("pop off"). It is not possible to plant seeds if the light level is too low.

Crops grow faster if the farmland they are planted in is hydrated. Using Bone meal on crops also increases the speed of growth by randomly increasing their growth stage by 2 to 5.

Breaking the final stage produces 1 to 4 wheat seeds and 1 wheat. If they are harvested early, they drop 1 seed without any wheat.

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.

Breeding[edit]

Wheat seeds can be used to breed chickens, lead chickens around, and make baby chickens grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time.

Taming[edit]

Like other seeds, wheat seeds can be used to tame parrots.

Composting[edit]

Placing wheat seeds into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
