WELCOME TO SUPER GROTEC INC

VISION

Offer  an affordable, sustainable solution for growing fresh, authentic organic, nutrient rich microgreens and leafy greens 365 days a year

SGT – GROW STATIONS designed to occupy a small space , with special spectrum grow lights with automatic timers  substituting sunlight for photosynthesis  , aesthetic looks  provide a ideal solution for in house growing .

Microgreens and most leafy greens grow in the same temperature range ( 15 to 25 degree Celsius) as we live in, SGT- grow station facilitates 365 days production irrespective of seasonal changes in outside climatic conditions.

Organic growing media like grow mats, use of untreated preferably organic  seeds, no fertilizers and chemical sprays, clean water for irrigation and no exposure to outside air pollution ensures authentic organic produce .

Micro greens are ready for consumption within 7 to 14 days from the date of sowing depending upon the species, making it possible to have a fresh harvest almost everyday.

Variety of different microgreens rich in vitamins , minerals and antioxidants can be grown with  minimal effort and cost.

Most economical compared to purchase from market. Average cost of production of  one tray of 10X20 inch size is  CAN$ 1.90 per 150 grams compared to Minimum market price of  CAN$ 7.90 per 150 grams of microgreens .          

                                                   IT  IS AN INVESTMENT  NOT AN EXPENSE.

 MISSION

Create awareness around the benefits of growing and consuming microgreens

Microgreens are seedlings of vegetables and herbs grown in: soil; grow mats; or coco peat (require sunlight) under grow lights and harvested in 7 to 14 days when 1 to 3 inches tall (depending upon species).

Wheatgrass is also grown like microgreens  and is harvested in 7-10 days when 4-6 inches tall. (Not recommended for those with wheat allergy).

Microgreens are NOT sprouts. Sprouts are grown in water, do not require sunlight and harvested in 2 to 3 days without leaves. Sprouts have a different nutritional value than microgreens.

With increase in the incidence of diseases like Cancer, Cardio-vascular disease, Diabetes , Alzheimer etc. due to toxicities caused by pesticides, weedicides, chemical fertilizers in plants, food preservatives in the processed foods, environmental pollution etc , its being strongly advised by doctors, dieticians to consume fresh green organic and raw foods abundant in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and  amino acids in the daily meals.

Researches carried out by , many  research scientists in  Nutrition and Agriculture in various countries have  found  that MICROGREENS  of some 25 species vegetables and herbs contain many  times more vitamins , minerals , and antioxidants than their mature plants.

SGT GROW STATION ensures  365 days in house produce of   authentic, organic, fresh microgreens  with minimal efforts and costs.  Some of the micro greens like broccoli, arugula, cabbage, radish etc. are said to contain additional compounds of  Polyphenols and Sulforaphane which are  said to have anti cancer , anti diabetic , anti cardiovascular and anti alzheimer properties.

Micro greens and green leafy salads being very sensitive to improper handling and storage, hence grown in house minimizes the risk of contamination  due outside handling and storage.

Microgreens are very versatile and easily incorporated into: smoothies, sandwiches, salads, and more and also make for an excellent garnish. 

                                          PREVENTION IS BETTER THAT CURE

GOAL

Promote nutrient rich food consumption thereby reducing the need for synthetic supplements

 

Various publications of  research scientists , Medical News Today, Healthline , WebMD and   many universities  have published  that microgreens are loaded with vitamins , minerals and antioxidants  many  times more(4 to 40 times) than their mature plants.
