Presented By: Arun Jani

Event: West Africa Anglophone Forum 2015 (2015-03-26)

Through research in South Africa, ECHO has been developing best-practices for growing Moringa and other crops. This reasearch, through the Howard G. Buffet Foundation, demonstrates growing Moringa on a large scale for powder production including soil fertility management and pruning. This presentation also demonstrates the integration of other crops into the Moringa system to increase overall profitability and productivity, as well as how to integrate legumes into maize production systems through intercropping.
