Purpose: Define data collection questions to be used in stage 1 of the AIRI microgreens program in conjunction with Epicollect 5.
Outline Data collection expectations and formats.
Participants of AIRI Program 1 Stage 1 are to keep a separate science journal, digital or paper, with the following data points collected on the 4th, 8th, and 12th day after planting. Specimen photos are to be taken during all observation days as well.
Complete list of data points to document prior to entering data in Epicollect:
What is the weight in grams of the total amount of seeds planed
How many days after planting where seedlings visible
Growing Method (soil, media, hydroponic)
Leaf Area (Optional depending on program application)
