Microgreens are young seedlings of edible vegetables and herbs that are harvested when they are only a few inches tall. They are known for their intense flavors, vibrant colors, and high nutritional content, making them a popular ingredient in salads, sandwiches, and other dishes.
The conditions required for growing microgreens depend on the specific type of plant being grown, but in general, they require a growing medium, such as soil or a soilless mixture, a container, and adequate light and water. Microgreens can be grown indoors or outdoors, but indoor growing is more common due to the ability to control environmental conditions. Various media can be used for growing microgreens, including soil, peat moss, coconut coir, vermiculite, and perlite. For organic microgreen production, organic soil or soilless mixtures should be used.
Microgreens can be an income-generating crop, as they are in high demand among health-conscious consumers and chefs. The investment required for setting up a small microgreen unit depends on the scale of production and the equipment needed, but it can be relatively low compared to other types of farming operations. There are many different types of microgreens that can be grown, including arugula, broccoli, kale, radish, and wheatgrass. The choice of which microgreens to grow will depend on factors such as market demand, growing conditions, and personal preference. Microgreens require light to grow, and both natural and artificial light can be used to assist in their growth. Ideally, microgreens should receive 12-16 hours of light per day to stimulate growth and
development. Grow lights, which emit the specific wavelengths of light needed for photosynthesis, can be used to supplement natural light and provide consistent light intensity and photoperiodism.
