I have compiled information about corn shoots, sunflower shoots, pea 
shoots, and microgreens, some of it from  Growing for Market articles 
(thanks Lynn!).  Would be glad to send on request.  Please request 
off-line via ATTRA's toll-free number 1-800-346-9140  or e-mail to me.  
The quick explanation of the basic process:  the seeds are spread in 
flats of soilless mix, kept moist, and the baby plants are cut when they 
are 2-6 inches tall, depending on what you are growing.
