Dirt is a block that can have trees and other naturally generated plants placed on it.

Obtaining

Dirt can be broken by hand, but using a shovel will speed up the process.

Fishing

Dirt has a 0.36% chance of being caught while fishing with an unenchanted fishing rod. It is part of the junk category.

This makes dirt technically renewable.

Natural Generation

It is very easily found in forest biomes, plain biomes, mountain biomes, and mushroom biomes.

Usage

When a block of dirt has no solid blocks at least up to 3 blocks above it, it will eventually switch to a grass block. When tilled with a hoe, it switches to farmland.

Farming

Dirt is good for growing trees, bamboo and sugarcane. Itself and grass are the only block that passive mobs, such as pigs and cows, spawn on.
