Microgreens Crop Planner

This is the Crop Planner page – be sure to check out our online microgreens video workshop; our free microgreens videos; and our consult options

Proper crop planning plays a huge role in the success of a microgreens operation. I am happy to to offer a crop and financial planning spreadsheet tool for small- to mid-scale microgreens operations! I developed this spreadsheet tool over seven years of microgreens production.

The Microgreens Crop Planner and Enterprise Budget Tool is a powerful spreadsheet that can help with several aspects of your operation including:

  • Setting seasonal sales targets
  • Learning how wages and production speed affect your production costs
  • Weekly crop planning
  • Input and per tray costs and pricing
  • Integrating overhead cost into your budget
  • Planning for farmers markets
  • Annual sales and production summaries by crop
  • And much more!

To view a video overview of the spreadsheet, check it out near the bottom of the page.

You can take a look at the spreadsheet here.

If you think this planning tool is for you (and it will not be for everyone), here are your purchase options:

 

 

Pre-filled Template

$75 US

Pre-filled for a $125,000/year operation (this gets you off to a good start!).
Also includes link to blank version if you want to start from scratch


Workshop Special

$40

If you purchased my online workshop on Teachable
you can purchase the pre-filled spreadsheet for $40 
You will find the password in the workshop crop planner notes
and you can access the special price here.

 


Template and Consult

$350 US

I offer two-and-a-half hour consults to accompany the
spreadsheet to help you go into to greater depth

(email to purchase to ensure I am available at a time that works for you).
You can upgrade from either of the above plans at anytime.


Once you have made your purchase you will be redirected to the appropriate page to copy or download your spreadsheet to Excel. Email me if you are not properly redirected and I will follow up. Sometimes these things just do not work.

Please note – the above files are hosted in Google Drive. You can download the file into Excel but you may need to do some formatting once it is Excel format. I hope to release a stable Excel version soon as well. The advantage of working in Google Drive is I can offer occasional help right in the spreadsheet for quick fixes.

You may find a few errors in the spreadsheets – please let me know if you do.

With each of the packages above I can answer a few pro bono questions as you get started! Over the course of 2019 I will offer some webinar courses so we can review spreadsheet components together.

When working on the spreadsheet in Google Drive, click on the cell or area you have a question about and click CTRL-ALT-M to make a comment/ask a question. Tag @vancouverurbanmicro@gmail.com in the comment and I will be notified of the comment and will do my best to answer (this will depend how busy I am or how many other people I have had to interact with that day!)

Here are some previous videos on the Crop Planner specifically to show you how that works. It has changed since this version but this is still a really good overview to give you an idea of how it works.

  1. Hi

    Is there no other payment option other than PayPal.

    Struggling to make payment. Had no issues with payment for online course!

    Thanks

  2. Hi chris ,i think i paid for this spreadsheet last year but i cant seem to find it anywhere . I took your course a couple years ago and would like to watch your webinar with the spreadsheet

  3. Hi I purchased your 75 dollar micro green planner template in the end of February and I can’t access it in my email.
    Please advise

  4. Question: could/would be feasible to add “lot number” cell at the time of soaking seeds, prepping seeds for planting? Therefore, one would be able to track the product back to the first date a “seed started”. It could be a simple thing like the actual date entered, the lot number cell would use the Julian Date for that day, plus one or two of the letters of the product name?

    Just a thought, knowing how regulators like to go back as far as they can in tracking items.

    When do you think a “stable” version of this spreadsheet is coming out in Excell format?

    Thank you for you time & consideration! Looking forward to studying your course.

  5. i wish to purchase your crop planner for use in excel. Is the stable version available yet?
    Great content and many thanks for sharing.

        1. Hi Lana,

          The spreadsheet is hosted on Google Sheets and can be exported to Excel. I have used it a bit in Excel with no issues but cannot guarantee full operation if exported. The $75 covers the spreadsheet, nothing else is included.

  6. it re directed but i didnt see a download.. my email on paypal (peanutbutterfudgeXXX) is different from the email i am sending as a contact email. My purchase was made today at roughly 11am EST

  7. Hi guys,
    I already purchased the crash course, loved it!
    now i would like to add the Planning Spreadsheet, but there’s no option to use the discount in paypal

    thx!

    1. Hi,

      You can find the link to the discounted version in teachable. There’s a Crop Planner section that has the link and details.

      1. Hi Chris,
        Thanks for you reply, yes, i followed the instructions from the Crop Planner section you mentioned, the link redirects me here https://urbanmicro.ca/crop-planner/, but from here the only way to purchase the Planner is via paypal, which does not allow me to enter any discount password.
        thx!
        R.
