Seeds (named wheat seeds in the Console Edition) are items used in farming.

ObtainingEdit

GrassEdit

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

VillagesEdit

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

Wheat seeds can be found in 55.3% of village two-room house chests in stacks of 2–4.[Bedrock Edition only]

FarmingEdit

Harvesting fully-grown wheat yields from 0 to 3 seeds per crop harvested (about 1 57 seeds/crop harvested on average).

UsageEdit

CropEdit

 
Different stages of crop growth.

Seeds can be placed in farmland by right-clicking, where they will grow through eight stages. When left alone, seeds planted on farmland will grow to become wheat which can be harvested by the player. Planted seeds need at least a light level of 9 in the block above them to grow or be exposed to the sky.

Crops will grow faster if the farmland they are planted in is hydrated. Bone meal can also be used to increase the speed of growth by causing the seeds to randomly increase their stage by 1 to 7.

Breaking the final stage produces 0 to 3 seeds and 1 wheat. If they are harvested early, they will drop seeds without 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.

Most crops (excluding melon and pumpkin stems and saplings) require light to continue growing. Either a block light value of 8 or higher (enough to prevent darkness monsters from spawning) or a sky light level of 5 or higher (night with open sky above). If this requirement is not met the crops un-plant themselves ("pop off").

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 (excluding pumpkin and melon blocks).

BreedingEdit

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

TamingEdit

Seeds can be used to tame parrots.
