# When wheat is harvested, does it drop 0 - 2 or 1 wheat?

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. 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. Jan 8, 2013 at 14:28
• 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. Jan 8, 2013 at 14:30
• Does it grow any faster then wheat? Jan 8, 2013 at 14:31
• 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. Jan 8, 2013 at 14:36
