Microgreens are fresh, edible vegetables considered as good nutritional benefits because of the presence of their high minerals. Microgreens provide an intense experience that will elevate the overall flavour of any dish. Microgreen cultivation leads to biodiversity protection by selecting wild species which give high nutrient content. In this study, by using 5 different growing media as treatments the experiment is conducted. The experimental material comprised five growing media like Soil, Water, Vermicompost, Cocopeat and FYM. Observations were recorded in five randomly chosen plants for the emergence of seeds (%), plant height (cm), plant weight (gm) and days taken to harvest, yield per tray (gm) and yield per hectare (kg). The character emergence of seeds on day 3 was shown an early performance on treatment (T1 and T5). The treatment (T4) cocopeat was shown the highest plant height (cm) at harvest day 7. Plant weight (gm) was shown highest performance on (T3) vermicompost. Days to taken for harvest (T3) vermicompost showed an early performance and the yield per tray (gm) treatment (T3) showed the highest yield.
