Q. 4.  Are MOMAX3 Seeds Organic?

A. Though we maintain our MOMAX3 Moringa farm more than organic but seeds certification as organic never come to demand

The claims “Organically grown seed produces hearty, robust plants already adapted to organic growing conditions” We consider a silly statement. Seeds and plants do not know they are being grown organically. Seeds are not ‘adapted’ to organic conditions. The genetics of the seed does not change after growing plants organically for a few years. Good quality seeds from organic farms or conventional farms will grow equally well in your soil.

MOMAX3 Moringa cultivar responds to organic growing very well and we strongly recommends to grow it organically

Q. 5. When should I source my seed?

A. Starting early is a good idea, as you need around 2 months for nursery stage.

Q. 6. What is physical purity?

A. The freedom from inert matter and defective seeds is known as physical purity. MOMAX3 are 100% Pure.

Q. 10. What is seed testing?

A. Process of evaluation of seed in terms of purity and germination is called seed testing. Our MOMAX3 seeds have International Seed Testing Association (ISTA) Certificate for seeds quality i.e. Germination percentage and Physical Purity

Q. 11. What are components of seed based on germination?

A. Based on germination, seed is divided into following five components:

(i) Normal seedlings: It includes seedlings with normal growth of root and shoot.( 91 out of 100)

(ii) Abnormal seedlings: Seedlings which are unable to develop into normal plants.(4 out of 100)

(iii) Hard seeds: Seeds which do not absorb water.(0 out of 100)
