ECHO Research - Posters Poster - Moringa Fertility Trial
Moringa is known for its ability to grow in a wide range of soils. We hypothesized, however, that moringa leaf production can be increased by applying fertility inputs at the base of the trees.
We wanted to know:
Do moringa trees benefit from fertility inputs?
If so, how many grams of nitrogen (from NPK fertilizer) per tree are needed to maximize moringa leaf yield in a sandy soil?
Does it make any difference, in terms of moringa yield, if NPK fertilizer is combined with compost?
