Show Notes for Episode 38 of the Microgreens Podcast: Microgreens Yield Per Tray
There are many environmental factors that effect the microgreens yield per tray.
Factors such as:
- Grow media
- Air Flow
- Seed germination rate
- Sunlight, indirect light, artifical light or grow lights
- and probably many more.
So it is hard for me to give you an estimate of what your microgreen yield will be per tray grown.
I plant my trays with Home Microgreens Potting Mix and use about the seed density that the Home Microgreens Seed Density Calculator provides me for each tray I use.
Here is what I expect from each tray of microgreens I grow:
10 ounces for a 1020 tray, which is 0.05-oz per square inch of tray.
27 ounces for a 1020 tray, which is 0.135-oz per square inch of tray
20 ounces for a 1020 tray, which is 0.1-ounces per square inch of tray.
A bit less than the brassica's
I don't track the yield for the other microgreens I grow. But if I do calculate a yield I will be sure to post the number here.
