With a growing number of companies growing microgreens in the last 10 years, these small plants produce up to 40 times more nutrients such as vitamins C, E and K than their mature, fully grown counterparts. Due to their high antioxidant content, they are considered a functional food that promotes health and prevents disease.

Substrate can be used as a growing mat for all types of production such as urban farming, food industries and hobbyists offering a premium growth media able to absorb and retain water while providing an optimal environment to promote rapid germination and plant growth with dense health root development. 

Due to the inert fibre of this Substrate – the mat is less prone to bacterial growth and designed to maintain its structural integrity for the entire crop cycle.
