Why Crop Planning Is Such A Headache & How to Solve It – Microgreen Manager

Episode 46 of the Microgreens Podcast

In episode 46 of the Microgreens Podcast, I interview Garrett Corwin, owner of Piedmont Microgreens and co-founder of a new software solution to microgreen crop planning and customer order tracking.

The software is called Microgreen Manager and is currently in beta (September 2023) and is scheduled to go live in November 2023.

Below is Garrett’s and my discussion of the headaches that microgreen crop planning and order tracking cause. And how Microgreen Manager solves the excruciating daily manual tracking by making a simple task list to follow from planting, care, harvesting, order packing, and harvestable surplus & deficit projections that can be dealt with in advance.

The last feature is invaluable because you have a heads-up if you have more or less microgreens needed for your next orders giving you time to find buyers for the surplus or better customer service by alerting your customers to shortages so they can make adjustments in their order.
