Abstract

Microgreens, the edible seedling of vegetables and herbs, received increasing attention nowadays. Microgreens are considered functional food or superfood due to their health-promoting properties. Mustard (Brassica nigra L.) and Radish (Raphanus sativus L.) were selected species for treatment. Five sets of these microgreens were prepared for treatment, two sets of both greens were treated with calcium chloride and the other two with calcium sulphate. Both solutions had different concentrations and one set was under control without any treatment. Calcium solutions were applied for 5 days. After the treatment studied plant growth and development, harvested microgreens were analyzed for biochemical metabolites. As a result, most of the treated microgreens had more physiological growth and increased metabolites than control.
