Micro Greens are one of the most profitable crops you can grow. They can be grown in a small space and the set up costs is low. The growing cycle is quick, so you can be harvesting/selling your first crop in just a couple of weeks. You can start off just supplying one restaurant. When you produce enough micro greens you can sell them once a week at a farmers market.

Unlike crops like corn or wheat, you don’t need to want a whole season to harvest. Micro Greens go from seed to harvest in little as 4 weeks at the most. The fast turnaround time allows you to experiment and maximize the efficiency of your operation. You can also quickly scale production up or down should your sales fluctuate throughout the year.

    Organic Micro Greens Farming Process:

    Micro Greens farming needs good observation and maintenance of external conditions for achieving good results. The process is as follows:

    • Soil beds are prepared by filling organic soil rich in nitrogeneous content in the trays.
    • The seeds to be grown are sprinkled on the top of the soil. Some seeds are soaked in water so that they absorb the required water content.
    • Paper towels or plastic covers are laid on top of the seeds. This keeps the environment warm for the seeds to germinate.
    • Water the seeds as required and place them in the nursery. Ensure enough light is provided inside the nursery.
    • Harvesting is done when the seeding grows to a height of 2 inches. They should be harvested with care to avoid them wilt quickly. A sharp knife is used to slice the base of the micro greens.
    • The leftover things in the tray after the harvest are collected in a vermiculture bin to be used later.
