  1. Key Resource 2005-01-20 The leaves of the Moringa oleifera tree are very nutritious. They can be consumed fresh, cooked or dried. Since dried Moringaleaves retain their nutrient content, it is possible to convert them into leaf powder. When there is an abundance of leaves, this leaf powder can be made and stored easily....  
  2. Moringa is a very popular tropical fast growing tree up to 15 m in height. The young pods can be eaten and the leaves are an excellent source of calcium, vitamins, minerals and protein. The tree has a loose crown and can also be used for a hedge, living fence or windbreak. It coppices well to...  
  3. African Moringa is a fast growing tree up to 15 m in height. It grows at higher and drier locations than M. oleifera. In comparison to M. oleifera, M. stenopetala has larger leaves with a milder taste when eaten raw, provides more shade, has a stockier and more bushy growth habit, can be more...  
  4. 2016-01-20 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...  
  5. 2012-01-01 While most of our network members are familiar with “moringa,” the moringa family (Moringaceae) actually contains many species. We have promoted the ever-popular M. oleifera, conducting our own taste-test trials to offer our network a more favorably tasting tree; we also work with the more...  
  6. 2004-01-20 In a survey reported in the East African Medical Journal, 597 school children and their parents were surveyed in areas of southern Ethiopia that have very high incidence of goiter. M. stenopetala had a significant association with the prevalence of goiter.  
  7. 2014-01-01 https://www.echocommunity.org/resources/71356f86-d90a-4032-9775-681c581fa715What if you are working in a community when disaster strikes it? What steps toward recovery can you take in such a situation? And what actions can be taken beforehand to minimize the damage from a large-scale,...  
  8. 2008-07-20 Briefly addressed are the following: Artemisia for malaria treatment. Aflatoxin. Leaf Protein Concentrate (LPC) for treatment ofsevere malnutrition. Moringa high density planting for leaf powder. Indoor air pollution.  
  9. 2015-01-20 To gain an understanding of the value of moringa prunings as a soil fertility input, we wanted to know the concentration of N, P, and K in woody versus leafy biomass of moringa trees. Plant tissue was collected at the second leaf harvest, about 2 months after the final manure application.  
  10. 1999-07-19 ECHO and others have published articles about the many uses, nutritional content and hardiness of this drought-resistant "vegetable tree." This report contains valuable technical information and adds an important human face by reporting results of an evaluation of the project and interviews with...
