Moringa Processing

Growing
For commercial use plant 10 x 10 cm apart or one million plants per hectare.

Moringa can be planted ½ to 1 meter apart along the border to form a living fence.

Moringa can be planted 3 meters apart and allowed to grow tall and mature to pods and seeds.

These mature Moringa can provide seed for propagation or the production of BenOil.

Harvesting:
If the objective is production of green fodder with a maximum of protein then harvesting should be done every 30 – 40 days.

1 hectare of land planted with intensive Moringa 10 cm apart and harvested 9 times per year can produce 650 tons of Moringa which can meet the Vitamin A needs of 15,000 children!

Picking:
Scarves, masks, gloves and overcoats are worn to meet food hygiene standards. The leaves are picked off the stems which can also be used for animal fodder.

Washing:
The first wash is done in catchment water or well water but the second wash is done in clean filtered water.

Drying:
Ensure the area is roden free and away from direct sunlight. This process may take three days

Drying Equipment:
Staging can consist of trays that are removable for easy access to the Moringa leaves once dry
