CropKing MicroGreen Rack

...take them or leaf them


Intensively flavored greens have become the new thing for many of the country's top chefs. Chefs could cut their own microgreens fresh for any dish.

Microgreens are tiny plants with only their first leaves developed. Harvested at 8-14 days, they are smaller and more tender than baby lettuces, yet more robust and flavorful! They are delicious and ideal for enhancing salads or as a garnish. Ask any chef or food connoisseur and you'll hear the excitement, the praise and the rave reviews of Microgreens.

CropKing's Microgreen growing system utilizes a controlled environment combined with reliable, efficient methods of growing that use less labor and water.

CropKing microgreen trays are sold as 6-level racks with the drain and feed plumbing. Many growers are adding the Microgreens rack to their greenhouse by tying into their NFT system.
