Propagation techniques of Moringa oleifera Lam.. Enriched title: Propagation techniques of Moringa oleifera Lam. [fodder trees, India]

Author(s): Sharma, G.K., V. Raina
Published in: Improvement of forest biomass : symposium proceedings / edit.   Nov 18, 1980
20-21 p. 175-181

The object of this study was to see how Moringa might best propagate itself so that it can be grown on a large scale. Moringa was tested in two forms, from cuttings and seeds. Hard wood cuttings from 1- and 2-year old branches were air-layered and treated with different levels of Indole-butyric acid in July and August, November and December, and February and March.

For seeds, the best time to sow was 1 month after harvesting. The longer the seeds were in storage, the less they were able to germinate. They grew best sowed at 10 mm. depth. The air-layered cuttings only sprouted during the February/March period. 50 parts per million IBA treatment for 24 hours was found to be the best dose for rooting branches. The two-year old branches grew more roots than the one-year olds. Moringa does not propogate well by air-layering.
