Moringa as a sustainable Food source for developing countries
Globally, about 870 million people do not have enough to eat, and more than two billion suffer from micronutrient deficiency, according to United Nations (UN) food agencies. The Moringa tree is increasingly considered as one of the world's most valuable natural resources, as the main constituents of the tree have several nutritive ingredients. Its leaves, pods and flowers are considered good sources of vitamins A, B, B2, B3, B6 and C, folic acid, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, and amino acids. More importantly, its leaves are highly nutritious; being a significant source of beta-carotene, vitamin C, protein, iron and potassium Arial. Moringa oleifera is an essential plant in meeting global food security and sustain the livelihoods of many millions of people. Food vs. fuel, for most, comes and goes with price cycles. It is seen as a transitory debate, usually focused on a handful of feedstocks that producers of food or fuel have become overly dependent on. To us, diversity is the solution - and diversification the strategy, and scientists and entrepreneurs must ultimately solve the debate by ending the need for it.
Moringa as a source of biodiesel
The oil from the Moringa tree is a more sustainable biodiesel feedstock as it can yield both food and fuel. Among those searching for solutions to feed the hungry, Moringa is well known. Malnourished children flourish with the introduction of the nutritious Moringa leaf crop, which provides protein, vitamins and minerals in their diets. The greatest potential for this species is currently thought to be in its cultivation for the production of biodiesel. Yields of about 20 metric tons of pods per hectare per year are achievable MOMAX3 Moringa trees. This would equate to between 3000 and 4000 liters of biodiesel per hectare per annum. It is particularly desirable because it is a very low water-use crop and may be cultivated on marginal land commercially
Considering Moringa’s potential as an oilseed feedstock for biodiesel ABC has honor to establish this untapped resource as alternative source for Bio- Diesel industry of future.
The Moringa oleifera trees must be regarded as a sure source of 2nd Generation Biodiesel and the foundation around which a profitable Business plan can be built for its ability to provide large amount of oil and its pure hardiness and stress handling ability. The Moringa oleifera tree that has enough credentials: a higher recovery and quality of oil than other crops, no direct competition with food crops as it is a edible source of fuel, and no direct competition with existing farmland as can be grown for both purpose same time
Strategies For Commercialization Of Moringa
Moringa farm production is straightforward. The productive plantation of Moringa needs to be scientifically managed for better growth and production. The growth and yield of the plant could be improved through effective management practices.
There are a few practices that every grower must apply in order to produce a successful harvest and maintain efficient and effective farm production. Suggested practices are as follows:
- Choose a proper variety for a certain growing area with a defined purpose
- Plant disease-free transplants
- Intercrop with vegetables and other crops for maximum land utilization
- Execute on-time and regular insect pest and disease protection
- Administer proper fertilization management (apply only recommended fertilizer dosages for certain varieties)
- Arrange for timely seed harvesting
- Implement a sustainable farm management system
We have developed different cultivator and cultivation technology for Moringa farming
-for leaf purpose and
-for Moringa harvesting for seed oil purpose and also
The enhanced cultivation technology and improved inputs developed by ABC may provide about 4000 liters of oil without displacing food crop and without utilizing prime food land in terms of sustainable farming techniques
The key factors that can influence the oil yield of Moringa are:
- Quality of the soil
- VAM INOCULATION

Newly bred cultivars are extensively tested in multi-location trials and true to kind seeds are being produced with high quality standard
Enhanced Moringa Agronomy: Cultivation Technology
The Moringa tree is native to India but has naturalized across tropical and subtropical regions. The tree has incredible nutritional value, low demand for water and prolific growth and biomass production. As the seeds do not form a staple food source, the food for the people or food for fuel issue is argued to be not relevant. Also, the tree is able to grow in marginal lands and the leaf litter has the potential to improve the quality of the soil and is documented as having improved the size and quality of vegetable crops that have been intercropped with Moringa.
The productive plantation of Moringa needs to be scientifically managed for better growth and production. The growth and yield of the plant could be improved through effective management practices.
ABC’s Researchers have developed standardized techniques for growing Moringa oleifera on large scale. ABC ensures Organic Moringa plantation right from the land preparation, crop management to production of end product. ABC Moringa Farms are under the vigilant supervision of agronomists, who make sure that the latest and best breed of Moringa oleifera is being planted. However, we keep a close watch on the research results of Moringa breeding by studying thousands of Moringa variants, identifying and collecting the best sources of high-quality to guarantee a consistently high yield, a stem, or scion, from a tree with a demonstrated capacity to produce many pods/seeds. This not only removed the uncertainty from the yield, it also provides multiple harvests within a few months. Accordingly, the enhanced variety of pkm-1 and MOMAX3 with regards to Leaf Production OR seed yield and oil yield and the enhanced Cultivation techniques may ensure proper and profitable production of THE CROP providing early fruition and flowering—
