Microgreens are fresh, edible vegetables considered as good nutritional benefits because of presence of their high minerals. Microgreens provides an intense experience that will elevate the overall flavor of any dishes. Micro green cultivation leads to the biodiversity protection by selecting wild species which gives high nutrient content. In this studies, by using 5 different growing Medias as treatments the experiment is conducted. The experimental material comprised of five growing Medias like Soil, Water, Vermicompost, Coco peat and FYM. Observations were recorded in five randomly chosen plants for 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 day 3 were shown an early performance on treatment (T1 and T5). The treatment (T4) coco peat were shown a highest plant height (cm) at harvest day 7. Plant weight (gm) were shown highest performance on (T3) vermicompost. Days to taken for harvest (T3) vermicompost was showed a early performance and the yield per tray (gm) treatment (T3) were showed a highest yield.
