Using this budget, farmers can estimate the costs and returns for microgreens. Table 1 presents estimates for Missouri based on price forecasts in March 2024. Production is assumed in an greenhouse on a stainless steel shelf system under artificial lights. Detailed assumptions and capital investments are summarized in Tables 2, 3 and 4. Use the "Your estimate" column to plan your microgreens operation’s costs and returns.
