Growing Quinoa all year round indoors using furistic techniques

Asked October 22, 2014, 11:26 AM EDT

Hi - how many harvests can I do (for quinoa) from a single planting - one?
Also, if I maintain all climatic controls indoors, can I replant and harvest every 4 months?

Note: this is more of a futuristic question, not based on current techniques.

I do not know of anyone that is currently growing quinoa in the SE part of Michigan. The link above from Purdue University provides some detailed information that may provide answers to your question. Based on the information I've seen you would not be able to harvest every four months due to the temperatures in our climate. Cold or freezing weather is important for the growing of the crop.

Thanks,
