When a village jumps on a patch of farm land will the seeds and the plants there be uprooted? If so, whats a good way to avoid this?

    Or you could KILL ALL THE VILLAGERS! A dead villager is a villager that won't be trampling your crops. May 10 '13 at 15:26
  • @ChargingPun Why kill them when you can imprison them? You don't want to lose those delicious trades...

    @fredley I play on xbox, and they give me NOTHING! Death to villagers! May 10 '13 at 15:47

Yes they will.

You can either fence off the crops, place blocks above them, or disable all crop trampling from mobs by using

/gamerule mobGriefing false
  • Note that wheat (at least, and maybe others too) needs one air block above the seedling or it won't grow. May 10 '13 at 15:54

    Also note that disabling gamerule mobGriefing is a bit of overkill for just saving crops, as it would also prevent Creepers from blowing stuff up and Endermen stealing yo blox. Ain't saying this isn't cool :)
