Harvesting fully-grown wheat crops yields from 0 to 3 seeds per crop harvested (about 2.5 seeds/crop harvested on average).
Block states [ ]
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 crops, 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.
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.
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.
Item names did not exist prior to Beta 1.0.
