1020 Microgreen Trays - Shallow Extra Strength

Pack Size (Select Below)

Finally, a long-lasting tray made just for microgreens and made in the USA! This microgreen tray was designed with serious microgreen growers in mind. Newly redesigned with an easy lift indent, bottom-watering has never been easier! 

Durable Microgreen Trays

Most microgreen growers only get a few uses from their growing trays. A typical microgreen grower on a two-week cycle ends up replacing their cheap trays five or six times a year. Buying Bootstrap Farmer's microgreen tray means saving yourself both time and money; it means never having to buy new trays again.

Bootstrap Farmer's microgreen trays are built to last a lifetime. We are so confident in the durability of our microgreen trays that if they break within two years (under normal use) we will replace them for free.

Sized for Microgreens

The shallow plastic microgreen tray height is 1¼". This allows you to quickly and easily cut your microgreens as low as possible, which minimizes labor and maximizes your harvestable weight.

Excess water in your microgreen trays can lead to mold. These growing trays have 36 drainage holes to remove excess water while being small enough to hold in growing media.

Ask a Question
  • do you ship to canada prices

    We do! Just send us an email with what you'd like to order & your address to contact@bootstrapfarmer.com
    Just note there will be relatively high shipping costs until we get more inventory there locally - which should be happening in a few months. 

  • Greetings, Are the the shallow microgreen trays available without holes? Thanks

    Thats something we are currently working on.  We are currently tooling the mold for the microgreen tray with no holes.  We expect to have all our testing, adjustments and production done early Feburary 2018.

  • is this bpa free?

    Yes our microgreens trays and all our trays are BPA free.  Our microgreen trays are made out of polypropylene plastic.

  • Hi, we are wondering if these trays are considered food grade? Also, what is the recycling rating on them as well. This is about the durable micro green trays, Thank you.

    Yes these microgreens trays are food grade.  They are made out of PP #5 polypropylene plastic.

  • Is there a temperature threshold where the trays will resist warping up until? I'm looking into purchasing a commercial washer and the water temperature ranges from 120 to 140 degrees F.

    The trays will be pliable around 150 degrees F. and melt around 266 degrees F.

  • Do you have option for 50 pak of tray

    We don't sell in 50 packs. Our largest pack size is 30.

  • Would the 1020 humidity dome fit on top of this?

    Yes, the humidity will fit on the 1020 Microgreen trays. It is meant to fit on any of our 1020 trays.

  • How many trays does a pack have?

    A pack has 2, 5, 10 or 30 trays in it.

  • When will these be in stock again?

    We expect these to be back in stock by the end of March!

  • Would the 2 of the 1010 trays fit inside this 1020 tray? I have some 1010 trays with holes but need something under them for bottom watering.

    Yes the shallow 1010 trays fit inside the shallow 1020 trays for sucessful bottom watering.

  • I see this is a 1020 "shallow" tray, what is the height or the 3rd dimension? Thank you.

    The shallow trays are 1.25 inches tall.

  • Is it possible to place an order for these 10)black-no holes, or any other color for that matter? Would just like to be in line to get these when they become available.

    While we don't accept pre-orders we expect to receive more than enough at the end of this month to fulfill upcoming orders.  There is a spot to enter your e-mail address on the listing that will add you to our automatic notification list when the inventory is replenished if that helps :)

  • Will these trays also work for bottom watering for the 1" shallow mesh trays?

    Yes the shallow microgreen trays with no holes will work for bottom watering the shallow mesh tray.

  • If I have the regular 1020 trays... can I still put the shallow tray with holes into a regular tray without holes? Thank you.

    Yes you certainly can.  Just be aware that there will be gap between the two trays since the deep 1020 is 2.5" deep and the shallow microgreen tray is 1.25".  This shouldn't effect plant growth however if you are bottom watering you will need more water in the bottom tray in order for it to reach the bottom of the microgreen tray.  If you'd rather use less water you can either use two shallow trays or two deep trays where the gap would be considerably smaller (and therefore requiring a reduced amount of water).  It is really personal preference.

  • Are you selling outside US? I would like to buy trays with delivery destination in Europe- Greece.

    You may want to try Amazon as they are the only other authorized retailer of our goods (and we don't ship internationally at this time).

  • What is the weight of the microgreen tray with holes?

    It is approximately 0.70 lbs per tray

  • When I order trays do they come with the dome cover to block out the light?

    They don't come with a dome cover however most people flip over a black 1020 tray to place on top to act like a blackout dome :)

  • What is the thickness of the material?

    The microgreen trays are 2mm thickness on he bottom and 1.8mm on the sides.
