Despite their relatively small size, urban farms grow a surprising amount of food, with yields that often surpass those of their rural cousins. This is possible for a couple reasons. Hydroponic plant cultivation is widely considered more sustainable than regular farming as it uses around 90% less water. Secondly, hydroponic farming yields more vegetables and herbs in a shorter time. Growers are able to plant more densely, thereby increasing the yield substantially.

Many of our clients grow microgreens in the city, the calculated yield potential per microgreens profile of 1.825m x 100mm is 225gr for the small leaf to 1395gr for large leaf microgreens, within 5 – 8 days. 

Scaling up on your microgreens hydroponic system is easy – simply add more profiles to increase your yield.
