Moringa Wiki

Moringa information that anyone can write and edit.

Welcome to the Moringa Wiki, a growing collection of articles on everything related to Moringa. Anyone can create or edit any article, so we can all work together to build a store of knowledge.

To grow a large amount of Moringa green matter (leaves and green stems), techniques have been developed for growing Moringa intensively. The seeds are planted relatively close together so that a large number of trees can grow on a small amount of land.

With Irrigation and Fertilization

A spacing of 10 X 10 centimeters (4" X 4") has been recommended when growing Moringa intensively as a crop.  Moringa green tops can be harvested every 35 days.  Dividing the field into 35 parts, and planting one part a day for 35 consecutive days, would allow daily harvesting on a 35 day cycle.

Irrigate and fertilize according to your needs.

With No Irrigation or Fertilization

If not irrigating or using fertilizer, a spacing of 40 centemeters (16") between rows and 5 centimeters (2")between plants has been recommended.  Cut every 60 days at about 25 centimeters (10") above the soil.
