Village farm plots have a 50% chance of being wheat crops.
Harvesting fully-grown wheat yields from 0 to 3 seeds per crop harvested (about 1 5⁄7 seeds/crop harvested on average).
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 seeds without any 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) 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.
