Wheat can be sprouted, using the soak, then rinse procedure. Planting in soil is best for making wheat grass -- the young greens that are cut for juicing.

Unless you have a field, a mule or two, and plan to do some serious threshing, susan g's suggestion about buying wheat berries and sprouting them is probably easier. And quicker.
