Farming | Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition Wiki

A large Minecraft farm, complete with a windmill.

Farming is a mechanic in Minecraft that allows the user to plant crops (seen below) as a method of accumulating resources to survive in Minecraft. It requires labor from the character, but can often times be done automatically or semi-automatically, given  the correct equipment. Once the crops have grown, they can be harvested to use as food, or be crafted into other recipes. Here is a list of all the things that can be farmed in the current version of Minecraft. 

  • Wheat (must hoe land first to plant, LT)
  • Mushrooms (both species, brown or white-spotted)
  • Sugar Cane (can be planted and sand or dirt but must a adjacent to water.
  • Trees (must be planted on grass or dirt)
  • Cactus (can not be placed adjacent to other blocks and also must be placed on sand)
  • Melons (must hoe land first to plant the stock, the stock will need a block adjacent to the hoed land

to grow the melon. )

  • Pumpkins (same as melon but the stock will grow a pumpkin instead)
  • Cocoa Beans (must be planted on Jungle Tree logs)

  • 4 Breeding

Rules

When you a plant a crop that requires a hoe to tend the land (Wheat, for example) you cannot jump on the farmland or else it will transform into dirt, which cannot be cultivated upon. 

Bone Meal Method

Bone Meal is used mainly used for farming. Bone Meal is used to instantly grow crops, such as wheat and trees. Bone Meal needs to be created in a Crafting Table or your crafting interface (Y-button). It is the white substance in a bowl in the 'dye' section. Each individual bone meal can only be used once. 

Note: If you use bone meal on a dirt block/grass block, flowers and tall grass will pop-up, making seeds much easier to get.

Materials for Farming

To begin farming your land, you must aquire these items first: 

  • Seeds: Wheat seeds can be found where tall grass appears; punching tall grass will eventually drop some seeds
  • Mushrooms Brown/Red: These items can be in Mushroom biomes, under tress, in caves, or in the Nether. Simply punching them will do.
  • Sugar Cane: Sugar cane is more abdudant after a recent update, when 4JStudios/Mojang heard about their rarity and addressed the problem. Canes can be found only near water (at least one block on one side of the sugar root) and will naturally occur at random. 
  • Saplings (trees):  To gain sapplings, one must punch leaves on a tree for them to drop. An alternative method is to burn the leaves or wait for them to decay after removing the logs form said tree. 

Note: Can also be used as head armor, or crafted into a jack-o-latern. 

  • Cocoa Beans: Can be found in jungle biomes, or in dungeon chests. They must be grown on the side of a jungle tree, and have three stages: a small, green stage, a slightly larger, tan stage, and finally a ripe, mature, reddish/brown stage.

Breeding

As of the TU7 update on Decemeber 19th, 2012, passive animals can now be bred. Breeding is a new feature in Minecraft where animals may breed with the same species. Breeding is a helpful tool to expand a farm and aquire natural resources from animals, as populations will increase exponentially if done properly. For animals to began producing babies of them, the player's animal(s) is/are required to enter 'love mode' by clicking the LT (left-trigger) button with the corresponding item in their hand (see list below). Note that animals must be fairly close with each other to begin breeding.

  1. Wolf
    • Feed rotten flesh, raw meat (beef, chicken or ham) or cooked meat for Wolves to enter love mode
    • Note: Wolves must be tamed before breeding (see: Wolf ). Wolves must also be at full heath before entering love mode. The health of a Wolf is indicated by the angle of its tail (100 degress=100% healthy). 

Once two animals of the same species are fed the correct food and are within close range of each other, they will begin emmiting hearts and be drawn towards each other. A small animation may occur, showing the two animals kissing for about 2 seconds, before a baby of them appears. It will take 20 minutes (a full Minecraft day) for the baby to mature into an adult. For that time span, it will follow its parents around. It has been noted that babies moves faster, make higher-pitched noises and have smaller bodies than their counterparts.

How to Make a Tree Farm in Minecraft [10,000+ Logs/ Hour]

Wood is one of the most versatile materials in Minecraft. You can use wood to craft tools, furniture, utility blocks, and it can even act as a diverse building block itself. Thanks to the Minecraft 1.19 update, we now have nine types of woods in the game. But, because of its variety of uses, irrespective of how much wood you collect, it’s never enough. To help you with that, we’re here with a farm design that you can use to collect 10,000+ wood logs every hour. You simply need to learn how to make a tree farm in Minecraft, and then, you can go AFK while your automatic tree farm gets to work. But since this farm takes time to build, let’s not waste another moment and dive right in!

Build a Tree Farm in Minecraft (2022)

In this article, we have covered the material list, efficiency, and the building process of the tree farm in separate sections to make it easier to understand. First, let’s look at what wood you should use in this farm.

Table of Contents

Efficiency of Minecraft Tree Farm

The time it takes for different types of trees to grow varies in Minecraft 1.19. Because of that, not every tree is equally efficient when making a Minecraft tree farm. So, based on the tests done by YouTuber Dusty Dude, who designed this farm, and our independent testing, you can expect the following results:

  • Oak: ~ 10,282/Hr
  • Spruce: ~ 8,626/Hr
  • Birch: ~ 9204/Hr
  • Jungle: ~ 6879/Hr

Please note that we’re not covering crimson and warped wood as they are a type of fungus (not a tree) that is only generated in the Nether biome. Alongside that, we are also leaving Acacia, Dark Oak, and Mangrove tree aside due to their complex growth mechanics. If you use their saplings, you might end up breaking your farm.

Items You Need to Make a Minecraft Tree Farm

You need the following items to make the most efficient tree farm in Minecraft:

208 Solid Building Blocks (Any)10 Redstone Dust Pieces
91 Redstone Dust9 Chests
82 Leaves7 Furnaces
58 Fence Gates6 Water Buckets
44 Hoppers5 Blocks of Redstone
41 Sticky Pistons3 Levers
36 Slime Blocks2 Dispensers
38 Logs2 Observers
38 Honey Blocks2 Redstone Comparators
21 Glass Blocks1 Dead Horn Coral Fan
17 Redstone Repeaters1 Detector Rail
1 Dropper1 Piston
1 Obsidian1 Stone Brick Wall
1 TNT

Even though the list of items might appear to be overwhelming, all of them are easy to collect. If you know about the Minecraft biomes, you can collect all of them in no time.

Note: We are using the Better Hoppers texture pack to make it more effortless for you to understand the direction in which a particular hopper is facing. You can do the same to make your life easier during this build.

Make Harvesting Area for AFK Tree Farm in Minecraft

Because of the farm design’s complexity, we have divided it into separate sections to make it easier to build. You can finish one section at a time to avoid overwhelming yourself. Now, let’s take it step by step:

Tree Growing Area

Follow the steps below to make the tree growing area of an AFK tree farm in Minecraft:

1. First, place a dirt block in the air. It should be two blocks higher than the ground.

2. Then, place a dropper facing upwards on one side of the dirt block.

3. After that, put a dispenser on top of the dropper. This dispenser should face toward the soil block.

4. Now, build a small staircase right behind the dispenser using two building blocks. The final result should look like the following screenshot.

5. Then, put two observers facing each other right behind the lower building block. The opposite arrows on top of the observers’ heads will help you get it right.

6. Next, dig out three blocks in the ground beneath the latter observer. In the newly dug hole, place a sticky piston right beneath the observer.

7. Then, put a building block in the far end of the hole and use the middle empty block to put a Redstone torch on that building block. The torch will activate the sticky piston.

8. After that, go back to the floating dirt block and place a building block, two blocks away from the dirt block to the left. This new block should be one block above the ground.

9. Then, stand on the newly placed block and put a dropper facing towards the building block. Now, put multiple hoppers that connect the original dirt block to the dropper. Look at the placement direction of the hoppers in the diagram below.

10. Then, place a row of 4 hoppers going into the dropper located next to the dirt block. These hoppers should be connected. Now, put a large chest on top of the hopper located furthest from the dropper.

11. Then again, start placing hoppers that go into the dispenser located next to the building block. These hoppers should surround the entire structure but shouldn’t be on top of the building blocks.

AFK Tree Farm Area

Follow these steps to expand the tree growing area into an AFK area for the tree farm in Minecraft:

1. First, go to the dropper located next to the building block. Then, put a furnace on top. You can use any other immovable block as well. Now, add a Redstone torch on the side of that furnace.

2. Then, place two repeaters between the building block and the dirt block. You have to crouch and then place the repeaters on top of the hoppers.

3. Then, expand the standing platform (the one next to the dropper with the furnace) by making it two blocks wide and three blocks long.

4. Then, create another 3 x 3 platform, one block lower than this one. This new platform should be on the left side of the existing one with one block going beneath the dropper.

5. Then, put a lever on top of the block next to the dropper on the new platform. After that, dig a tunnel beneath the lever that goes all the way to the block next to the sticky piston.

6. Then, fill the tunnel with Redstone dust. Now, that lever will act as an “On & Off” switch for your Minecraft tree farm.

Make a Leaves Crusher

Follow these steps to make a leaves crusher for your tree farm in Minecraft:

1. First, go back to the standing platform and place three building blocks, one block higher, on the platform’s side, which is towards the chest. These blocks will act as a boundary.

2. Then, on the new wall, put a temporary block on top of the block that is furthest from the hoppers. Then, put a sticky piston on top of that block. It should face towards the hoppers.

3. Once the first sticky piston is in place, put another one right behind it using a temporary block.

4. Then, create a tower of sticky pistons using the same steps. It should be 6 blocks tall.

5. After that, create an alternating wall of slime and honey blocks right in front of the sticky pistons. It should be 5 blocks wide and start from the sticky pistons. The first row from the bottom has to be of the slime blocks.

6. Then, place a block of Redstone in front of every slime block that’s next to the sticky piston.

7. Finally, fill the rest of the wall by placing fence gates. All of the fence gates must be open while your farm is working. Just follow this diagram to understand the gate placement:

8. Next, make sure that you are equidistant from the main dirt block and recreate the same mirrored design. We had to break a row of hoppers to get equidistant from the dirt block. Also, you don’t need to put Redstone blocks on this side of the leaves crusher.

Automate Leaves Crushers

With the leaves crushers ready, it’s time to automate them so that whenever a tree grows up, the machine can remove its leaves.

1. First, go under the dirt block and place a sticky piston beneath it. It should face towards the chest. Then, place a Redstone block on the face of the sticky piston.

2. Then, with a gap of one block, create a row of building blocks that extends from one leaves crusher to the other. It should be one block beneath the height of the newly placed Redstone block.

3. Then, put one building block a block higher than the row on each side. This new block should be next to the row and not on top of it, as shown below:

4. Then, start from the middle of the row and put Redstone dust on the entire row, except for the corner blocks. On the last blocks of either side, put a Redstone repeater.

5. Then, create a glass staircase leading up to the top of the leaves crusher on either side. You have to use temporary blocks to put one glass right on top of the temporary block and one adjacent to it.

6. After that, go to the topmost block and build a 2 blocks wide and 3 blocks long platform with building blocks. This platform should be alongside the row with slime blocks and the block that connects to the slime should be immovable.

7. Then, set up the same Redstone mechanic on the platform as the following screenshot. After that, create the same platform next to sticky pistons on all slime rows of both leaves crushers.

Redstone Mechanic for Leaves Crushers on the Standing Platform Side

8. Finally, connect the Redstone of these platforms to the row of Redstone on the ground. To do so, place Redstone dust on top of all the glass blocks in the staircase. There should be no glass block or temporary block higher than the topmost platform’s Redstone repeaters.

9. With that, your leaves crushers should be ready for use. You can put a lever next to the row of Redstone to test it out. It should accurately move forward and backward.

How to Automate a Minecraft Tree Farm to Collect Items

Log Pusher

Follow the steps below to create a log pusher for your tree farm in Minecraft:

1. First, place blocks to cover all the hoppers going from the double chest to the dispenser. We don’t want any products of leaves entering that system.

2. Then, put a glass block on top of the hopper next to the covered hopper and the dirt block. Now, use that glass block to create a tower of 5 wooden logs.

3. After creating the log tower, put a building block two blocks higher and right next to the tower. This block should be right above the dirt block and have a gap of 8 blocks between them.

4. Now, place two sticky pistons with the help of temporary blocks, right next to the chest. These sticky pistons should be behind one another and facing toward the glass block and the log tower.

5. Then, keep placing double sticky pistons again and again until you have a tower that is 6 blocks tall.

6. After that, go down to the row of Redstone located between the glass stairs. Here, place a building block next to the middle block of the row. Then, put a Redstone repeater on top at a 3-tick delay.

7. Then, create another glass staircase next to the new tower of sticky pistons. Once it’s completed, connect the sticky piston towers to the newly placed repeater by placing Redstone on the glass.

Item Collection Area

Follow these steps to make the item collection area of the tree farm in Minecraft:

1. Next up, go beneath the farm where the tunnel of Redstone is located. Here, create a row of blocks on the ground, next to the tunnel. This row should start from the second observer and go to the lever platform.

2. Then put Redstone on top of the newly placed row. One end of the Redstone should end at a block beneath the hopper and the other should end at the block connected to the observer. While you are here, you can also cover the existing tunnel of Redstone.

3. Then, right next to the covered tunnel, create a wall that is 5 blocks wide and 3 blocks tall from the ground.

4. Then, create one 8-block long row on each side of the wall.

5. Once the structure ready, put water on the bottommost row of the wall. The water will flow to the edge of the area.

6. Then, put a large chest outside either corner of the collection area where the water ends. These chests have to be placed on the ground and should not be in front of the structure.

7, Then, place hoppers in the ground right next to the water where the structure ends. Three hoppers should point towards one chest and four should point towards the other one.

Build the Tree Farm’s Boundary

1. Once the collection system is ready, you can put a boundary around the hopper to prevent random stuff from getting in.

2. Then, use leaves or building blocks to cover both sides of the main plantation area. This will prevent the tree leaves from falling outside the farm. But make sure to leave the space in front of the logs empty.

Make a TNT Duplicator

Follow these steps to add a TNT duplicator to your tree farm in Minecraft:

1. First, go to the wall of the item collection system that is towards the main switch of the farm. Then place an obsidian block above the water. It should be next to the wall, one block away from the hoppers.

2. Then create a temporary tower above the obsidian that is 12 blocks high. After creating the tower, place a leaves block next to the topmost block of the tower, towards the nearby wall.

3. Here, create a 3-block long canal, leading up to the temporary block by surrounding it with leaves blocks.

4. Once the canal is ready, put an open fence gate on top of the temporary block. Then release water into the canal from the opposite corner. You might have to place the water twice to avoid having waterlogged leaves in Minecraft.

5. Then, create an L-shaped structure with three slime blocks on the wall of the canal. This wall should be towards the main farm. Then put a wall block on the topmost slime block.

6. Then, use the wall block to create another L-shaped slime structure.

7. Next, put a detector rail on top of the new slime structure’s curve. It should be facing toward the higher-placed slime block.

8. Then put a minecart on top of the rail and a TNT block below the wall block.

9. After placing the TNT, put a dead coral fan on its side. It should be placed above the fence gate and the coral fan must be dead. Then, increase the height of the surrounding leaves block by one block.

10. Then, get on top of the slime block that is next to the minecart. Here, connect a sticky piston to the slime block with a block behind it. Then put a regular piston on top of the sticky piston. both pistons should be facing towards the minecart.

11. For the Redstone mechanic, make a platform right behind the pistons.

12. Finally, use the following screenshot to create a Redstone mechanic to run the TNT duplicator.

How to Activate Tree Farm in Minecraft

With that, your Minecraft tree farm is now ready. Now, all that’s left for you to do is activate it, and here’s how you can do that:

Activate TNT Duplicator

Follow these steps to activate the TNT duplicator in your Minecraft tree farm:

1. First, remove all of the temporary blocks that are below the TNT duplicator.

2. Then, go to the main lever and expand the Redstone tunnel by three blocks. It should go from beneath the platform to behind it. Then, create a tiny stair at the back edge. Place Redstone on the bottom part of the stair and connect it to the tunnel’s Redstone.

4. Then, use the upper part of the stair and create a Redstone torch tower. The floors of this tower will alternate between a solid block and a Redstone torch. This structure will have only 7 Redstone torches in it.

5. Then, create a staircase-like structure of building blocks to connect the tower with the TNT duplicator. The final result should look like the following screenshot.

6. Finally, put Redstone dust on the new structure. Then, put a Redstone torch beneath the building block next to the TNT machine to activate it.

How to Use Tree Farm in Minecraft

With everything else in place, follow these steps to use the tree farm in Minecraft:

1. First, go on top of the TNT duplicator and place any 5 stackable items in one of the hoppers. This will put your TNT duplicator into a loop, making it drop TNTs every few seconds.

2. Then, head to the large chest that is placed next to the tower of sticky pistons. You have to fill it with bone meals to make your farm the most efficient.

3. Finally, use the main lever to turn the farm on. Then, stand on the platform next to the dirt block, hold a sapling, and start right-clicking on the dirt block. It’s best if you have multiple saplings in your inventory. Though, the tree farm will start providing new saplings to you in no time.

How Does the Tree Farm Work in Minecraft

Using bone meal on saplings makes them grow at a significantly faster rate. The tree farm in Minecraft relies on this mechanic to give us reliable results. You have to stand at one spot to keep planting saplings on a dirt block. The easiest way to do so is by spamming the secondary action key and then unplugging your controller so that it keeps going on automatically.

While you plant the saplings, it dispenses bone meals on them to make the saplings grow into trees. As soon as a tree grows, the leaves crushers get activated. They break the leaves of the trees and send the loot from these leaves (apples & saplings) to you. Meanwhile, the log pusher keeps pushing the main trunk of the tree towards the TNT duplicator. There, the logs are exploded by TNT and get collected by the water collection system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do trees in Minecraft need sunlight?

Trees in Minecraft can grow around any bright source of light.

Can you grow a 4×4 tree in Minecraft farm?

While it is possible, we suggest you do not grow 4×4 trees in Minecraft’s tree farms as they can easily break your farm.

Why is my tree not growing with the bone meal?

If there is a block right on top of the sapling then the tree won’t grow. Moreover, some trees like acacia and dark oak require more space than other trees to grow.

How many Bonemeals does it take to grow a tree?

It usually takes up to 3-4 bone meals to grow a sapling into a tree.

Does TNT duplicator work on the latest Minecraft?

You can use the TNT duplicator even on the Minecraft 1.19 update without facing any issues.

Make Automatic AFK Tree Farm in Minecraft

With that, after extensive effort, you are now ready to make your own AFK tree farm in Minecraft. Once it’s ready, you will never run out of wood, saplings, and apples again. But, as you might have noticed, you need a lot of bone meals to get the farm running. For that, we suggest you make a mob farm in Minecraft, where you can kill skeletons to collect bones. Alternatively, you can also visit the Nether dimension to collect bone blocks. Both bones and bone blocks can be turned into bone meals. Having said that, what are you going to use your tree farm in Minecraft for? Tell us in the comments!

How to build a sustainable farm in Minecraft: Windows 10 and Xbox One

Building sustainable farms in Minecraft is an important factor in long-term survival. Here's everything you need to know about setting up and maintaining a farm in Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition.

  • Collect seeds
  • Find farmland
  • Down to the ground
  • Water your crops
  • Fertilize crops
  • Protect your harvest
  • Light up your harvest
  • Know when to harvest
  • Growing of crops other than wheat

Collect seeds

To plant a farm, you must first collect seeds from the natural environment.

Find a patch of tall grass and start pressing. Not every piece of grass you hit will produce seeds, but keep it and you'll soon have a collection of seeds.

Once you have a farm set up, the wheat you harvest will usually produce one to three seeds (sometimes no seeds) for you to replant your crop.

Find Farmland

The ideal location for a farm is an open grassy area near water. As long as your Farm Mud Tiles are four blocks from water, they will become hydrated and grow much faster. Make sure your farm tiles are at or below the water level.

Please note that you can also carry water with a bucket. If you want to be more careful and stay in your hiding place, use this method to create a closed farm.

Down to the ground

Your next step is to start working the soil with a hoe. If you haven't created it yet, now is the time.

You can also dig a few trenches coming out of the water source. Creating rows of crops with no other crops directly next to them, as shown above, will provide the best growth rates. You also want to keep a bare strip of mud blocks to walk along as walking on your crops will damage them.

Using your hoe, right click on the tiles you want to craft. They will darken if they are hydrated.

Take out the seeds you collected and right click on the arable clods. This will plant the seeds and they will start growing immediately.

Water your crops

If you've ever over-expanded your crops where your water source doesn't reach, or if you want to create indoor farms, you can use a bucket to transport water.

The first step, if you haven't already, is to create a bucket.

Then find a source of water that does not flow. With your bucket, right click the water to fill your bucket. You will notice that the empty bucket icon will change to a bucket full of water.

Approach the area of ​​your farm that you want to water and right-click on the ground - click inside the hole to hold water - to empty the bucket. The water will spread out, watering your crops as you go.

Fertilize crops

You can use bonemeal, which is crafted from bones, to fertilize and instantly grow crops. If you don't have any bones in your inventory, wait until night falls and go out with your sword and armor. Kill as many skeletons as possible without dying!

Once you have harvested the bones and processed bonemeal, right click on the bonemeal on any crops you have already planted. Wheat, potatoes and carrots will grow in two to five stages.

Protect your crops

As mentioned, walking on your crops can damage them. This also applies to animals running around in your world, so you'll want to create fences and gates.

Place fences around the perimeter of the farm and make sure there are no blocks on the same level nearby - if there are, the animals will be able to jump over the fence. Place the gate where it is easy to reach.

Light up your harvest

If you have built an indoor farm or want your crops to grow during the night, you must place torches nearby.

Arrange the torches so that each block is illuminated by light - there are never too many of them!

Know When to Harvest

Your crops will go through several stages of growth before they are ready for harvest. If you harvest before he finishes growing, he won't produce wheat.

Once the stalks are dark green and the tips of the wheat are almost brown, they are ready to be harvested. Using any tool - or even your hands - click to harvest. Each block will produce one wheat and usually several seeds.

Pro-tip: Plant your seeds in the soil before it becomes uncultivated to save time!

Growing of crops other than wheat

Cocoa beans

Cocoa beans are usually quite plentiful in the jungle biome - you can find them growing under the foliage on trees. Seeds can also be found in dungeon chests. Unlike other crops, cocoa beans must be planted on the side of the raw jungle. They do not need to be planted near water.

Potatoes, Carrots and Beetroots

Found growing near NPC villages, potatoes and carrots can be planted and grown in the same way as wheat, as long as there are no seeds. Plant a whole potato or carrot in the arable dirt and wait until they are fully grown. When harvested, they will produce more units than you have planted.

Beets also grow near NPC villages, but they yield seeds when harvested. Replant the seeds to grow more beets.

Melons and Pumpkins

Pumpkins and Melons can be found in the wild, and seeds can be bought from some NPCs. Seeds can also be found in dungeons or abandoned cart chests. When you plant melon or pumpkin seeds, they will grow and can be harvested. Once you have harvested a pumpkin or melon, the seed will continue to grow again on the same dirt block.

Plow the soil

Your next step is to start working the soil with a hoe. If you haven't created it yet, now is the time.


You can also dig a few trenches coming out of the water source. Creating rows of crops with no other crops directly next to them, as shown above, will provide the best growth rate. You should also leave a bare strip of muddy blocks to walk on, as walking on your crops can damage them.

Using the hoe, right click on the tiles you want to craft. They will darken if they are moistened.

Take out the harvested seeds and right click on the cultivated earth blocks. This will plant the seeds and they will immediately begin to grow.

Water your crops

If you happen to reload your crops where the water source doesn't reach, or if you want to set up home farms, you can use a bucket to transport the water.

The first step, if you haven't already, is to make a bucket.

Then find a source of water that does not flow. Right-click the bucket on the water to fill it. You will notice that the empty bucket icon will change to a bucket full of water.

Go to the area of ​​the farm that you want to water and right-click the ground - click the hole that will have water - to empty the bucket. The water will spread out, watering your crops as you go.

Fertilize your crops

You can use bonemeal, which is created from bones, to fertilize and instantly grow crops. If you don't have bones in your inventory, wait until night falls and hit the road with a sword and some armor. Kill as many skeletons as possible without dying!

Once you've collected the bones and crafted the bonemeal, right-click the bonemeal on any crops you've already planted. Crops of wheat, potatoes and carrots will grow from two to five stages.

Protect your crops

As already mentioned, walking on crops can damage them. This also applies to animals running around your world, so you need to create fences and gates.

Place fences around the perimeter of the farm and make sure there are no blocks on the same level nearby - if there are, the animals will be able to jump over the fence. Place the gate so that it is easy to get to them.

Give Your Crops Light

If you set up a home farm or want your crops to grow during the night, you must place torches nearby.

Arrange the torches so that every block is on fire - you can never have too many!

Know When to Harvest

Your crops will go through several stages of growth before they are ready to harvest. If you harvest before it runs out, there will be no wheat from it.

Once the stalks are dark green and the tips of the wheat are almost brown, they can be harvested. Using any tool - or even your hands - click to harvest. Each block yields one wheat and usually several seeds.
