Task Microgreens Nutritional Investigation
Last Published:  03/26/21 03:34:00 PM (Central)
Short Title: Microgreens Nutrition
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Active - Currently funded and in progress
Procurement Mechanism(s):
SA-1: Conduct nutritional survey of microgreen down-selects from FY20 funded SLPSRA
microgreen crop screening investigation (n=12 cultivars).

SA-2: Investigate and screen n=24 novel microgreens and down-select to n=12 cultivars for
nutritional analysis.

SA-3: Using data gathered in SA-1 and SA-2, quantitate nutritional yield per cubic meter in
different space crop production scenarios using microgreen cultivars (n=24) grown under ISS
environmental conditions and compare nutritional volume efficiency to relevant traditional
crop growth methods, such as Veggie and new space-based crop production technologies
under development.
