|It has been suggested that the contents of this page be split into "Wheat Seeds" and "Wheat (block)".|
Harvesting fully-grown wheat yields from 0 to 3 seeds per crop harvested (about 1 5⁄7 seeds/crop harvested on average).
Village farm plots have a 50% chance of being wheat crops.
Wheat seeds can be placed on farmland by right-clicking, where they will grow through eight stages. When left alone, wheat seeds planted on farmland will grow to become wheat which can be harvested by the player. Planted seeds require a light level of 10 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.
Breaking the final stage produces 0 to 3 wheat seeds and 1 wheat. If they are harvested early, they will 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 will be destroyed because crops are a non-solid block.
Crops must be directly planted on the top of a farmland block; unlike most blocks, targeting the side of a block which would result in it being placed in top of farmland will not allow it to be placed.
Like other seeds, wheat seeds can be used to tame parrots.
Placing wheat seeds into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
