Do Grass blocks beside growing wheat affect its growth?

Grass Block beside growing wheat

Anecdotally no. – John the Green Sep 17 '11 at 15:05
Grass adjacent to wheat can actually harm it, as pigs and sheep can spawn there and trample your crops. – Joe Dovahkiin Sep 17 '11 at 17:58

Assuming the crop growth rate formula found on the wiki is correct: no.

The only blocks that can have a beneficial/detrimental effect on crop growth are other crops next to them.

And the adjacent light level. – Timtech Oct 19 '13 at 0:01

No, grass blocks do not affect growing wheat.
