I'm trying to decide whether to make a wheat or sugar cane farm. I want to know whether wheat drops 0 - 2 or 1 wheat when it is harvested. The wiki does not say.

  • Wheat and sugarcane are used for different things. You'll probably need both, not one or the other. Commented Jan 8, 2013 at 14:26
  • I am on a server with the ability to sell as stack of wheat for 2500 dollars and a stack of sugar cane for 3000 dollars. I have a 14 by 9 by 3 area to dedicate to a farm, so I'm wondering which I should do.

  • Without doing any math on it ... I would suggest that you go with the sugarcane farm. It grows ridiculously fast, and doesn't require anything for maintenance. Commented Jan 8, 2013 at 14:30
  • Does it grow any faster then wheat?

  • With sugar can you plant 1 block and 2 grow off of it, which lets you harvest 2 sugarcane. With wheat you plant a seed and it needs to go through all the growth stages (there are 8) before you can harvest 1 wheat. So while it may grow at the same rate, the time to be able to harvest 1 sugarcane vs 1 wheat would be a lot shorter. Commented Jan 8, 2013 at 14:36

1 Answer 1


Fully grown wheat drops 1 wheat, and 0-3 seeds when harvested. If it is not fully grown it only drops one seed.

This is clearly stated on the wiki.

  • Thank you. Unfortunately, there are multiple articles dealing with wheat, so it is hard to find the one with the information I am looking for.

    in his defense it is only clearly stated on the "Wheat Seeds" page, which is a little silly.

    @Paralytic It's a wiki. I fixed it. :) It's now easy to find on the Wheat page as well. Commented Jan 8, 2013 at 21:46
  • @Yamikuronue nice!
