How to grow wheat in Minecraft
In a nutshell:
To get wheat in Minecraft. Find land with water. First, you need to find a piece of land that has water. Next, you need to select a hoe in the hotbar so that you hold it in your hand. Then dig the ground, plant seeds, fertilize it with bone meal.
When it comes to actually purchasing wheat, you have different paths to choose from in terms of reliable sources. The first and one of the easiest paths in front of you is to break the blocks of grass. Almost all types of grass blocks can drop at least one wheat seed, which can be used as you see fit.
Another source is wheat itself, which if fully grown can give you at least three wheat seeds to use, increasing the number of crops you can grow per crop if you are smart and patient with your crops. If you want to stop growing it entirely and wait patiently for more to grow, you can go to the peasant farmers and trade the wheat for itself instead.
A novice farmer will have a twenty-five percent chance of having wheat in his inventory for sale, and will give you twenty wheat for one emerald. Traveling Traders will also sell Wheat Seeds if available, so keep an eye out for them if they are nearby.
Influence of livestock
When it comes to keeping farm animals, wheat can be used to graze cows, mushrooms, sheep, and goats. When you hold an item in front of you, they will follow you because wheat can be fed with them as food.
