Dirt is not used in any crafting recipes whatsoever. Some uses offered by this block are as a necessity for growing certain plants (but must first be tilled with a hoe), and as a cheap material for when a Player wishes to block off branches of a cavern, build walls or scaffolds, or any similar task that requires a medium to large number of blocks that are not affected by gravity.
- A bug in Minecraft Beta 1.8 pre-release allowed any block (including bedrock) to change into dirt when a Huge Mushroom was grown on it. This was later fixed in the second pre-release of version 1.8 so that Huge Mushrooms can only be grown on dirt, grass or Mycelium .
- There is a chance when mining, if you find a dirt vein there will be a chance ore will be in it or around.
- Most people think that stone or dirt is the most common block but it is air which takes that title.
- It bears many similarities to Netherrack.
