Average Cost of production of  selected microgreens

Average cost of common seeds per gram   = $ 0.06 – (A)

Average quantity of seeds per 10 X 20 inch tray   = 15 grams – (B)

Total cost of seeds per tray of 10 X 20 inch  (A X B) =  15 X 0.06   = $ 0.90

Cost of 10 X 20 Grow Mat   = $ 1.00

Average Cost of Production per tray  = $ 1.90 – (C)

Average Quantity of Microgreens per Tray (7 to 10 days)  = 150 grams

Model Wise Average No. of Trays Per Month & Cost Saving

SGT 011 – 6 Trays Per Month = 6 X 6  = $ 36.00

SGT 341 – 28 Trays Per Month = 28 X 6   = $ 168.00
