By depth, I guess you are asking how much soil can the seed "come up" through. That depends on soil type, whether the soil cover is packed or not and the coleoptile length of the different varieties. The lighter the soil, the easier it is for seed to push through. Generally, I would not put more than 2 inches of soil over the top of wheat in clay soil. Any more and your plant population and early plant vigor may suffer. Barley is a little more hardy, so you can go 0.5" deeper than wheat.
Peas and beans will emerge from quite some depth.
Life is what happens to you while you`re busy making other plans.
