Moringa at Cambodia is coming. It offers perfect conditions for Moringa trees.Moringa at Cambodia is coming. It offers perfect conditions for Moringa trees.

The organic Moringa value chain is an ideal crop since it grows year around, it supplements the daily meal with important minerals and vitamins. As Moringa is in most Western Countries a new product the market demand is growing rapidly.

It’s BACA-VILLA long term business interest to support the farmers and people in the rural Cambodia with measurements that they will be able to keep their land and provide a better life in terms of income, housing, hygiene, health and welfare.

Cambodia has one of the highest levels of forest cover in the region this makes it rich in natural resources and biological diversity – among the bio-richest countries in Southeast Asia. It offers perfect conditions for Moringa trees.

Moringa at Cambodia offers perfect conditions for cultivate Moringa trees not only the forest also the climate is excellent, Cambodia is located in Southeast Asia in the tropical zone, just 10-13 degrees north off the equator.
Furthermore >than 60% of the population is working in the agriculture and because the soil is from excellent high quality, the Moringa tree likes it here very much, which also means it stimulates the agriculture economy for the farmers.

Traditional medicine at Cambodia

It’s known that plants and animals have been used for hundreds of years in traditional remedies in Cambodia.

What is Traditional Khmer Medicine?
Traditional Khmer Medicine in Cambodian Society ?
Traditional Chinese Medicine and Traditional Vietnamese Medicine in Cambodia….
Which plants they are using and what is the effect of it. Of course we know already Moringa, Turmeric, Ginger, Sdau etc. but there are over 800 species of medicinal plants (native and introduced) were identified. This figure represents over 35% of Cambodia’s native flora. An overview of the use and trade of plants and animals in traditional medicine systems in Cambodia you’ll find here.

Mr. Yean Ysreng, Deputy Director of National Center of Traditional Medicine. About 40 to 50 percent of the population in remote areas are using traditional medicine because they are poor and it is cheaper than Western medicine. It also cures them of their ailments all the same.” The ancient Khmers first formulated this medical lore, during and around the Angkor period. From the turn of the first millennia until the present day, this system of treatment has served the people of Cambodia. “At that time, they only had traditional medicine to treat illness–they did not have hospitals yet,” said Yean Ysreng. “They also didn’t have microscopes and they dealt with illness by guessing the disease. For example, when they saw someone coughing they would guess that it was tuberculosis.”

The rate of absorption or assimilation of carbon dioxide by the Moringa tree is twenty times (20x) higher than any other tree.

Moringa highest absorption carbon dioxide emission.

The rate of absorption or assimilation of carbon dioxide by the Moringa tree is twenty times (20x) higher than any other tree.

Moringa highest absorption carbon dioxide emission. Study on Moringa and global warming revealed that 1 person emits 320kg of CO2/yr, it takes 23 Japanese Cedar trees takes 50 years to absorb this amount of CO2; it takes 2 Moringa trees 2 years to absorb this amount and 1 family car emits 2300kg of CO2/yr, it takes 160 Japanese Cedar trees 50 years to absorb this amount of CO2, it  takes  10  Moringa  trees 2  years  etc  (Muriel,  2010).

Advancing the Science of Climate Change:
A strong, credible body of scientific evidence shows that climate change is occurring, is caused largely by human activities, and poses significant risks for a broad range of human and natural systems, concludes this panel report from the America’s Climate Choices suite of studies. As decision makers respond to these risks, the nation’s scientific enterprise can contribute both by continuing to improve understanding of the causes and consequences of climate change, and by improving and expanding the options available to limit the magnitude of climate change and adapt to its impacts.

To make this possible, the nation needs a comprehensive, integrated, and flexible climate change research enterprise that is closely linked with action-oriented programs at all levels.

According to a Japanese study (Villafuerte, and Villafurte-Abonal, 2009) the rate of absorption or assimilation of carbon dioxide by the Moringa tree is twenty times (20x) higher than that of general vegetation and fifty times (50x) higher when compared to the Japanese cedar tree.

The Moringa tree therefore will be a useful tool in the prevention of global warming in that: One (1) moringa tree will be equivalent to the effectiveness of fifty (50) Japanese cedar tree in absorbing carbon dioxide (Villafuerte, and Villafurte-Abonal 2009). For example, If we expanded Moringa from one hundred thousand (100,000) hectares worldwide to one million (1,000,000) hectares, that would equate to five (5) gigatonnes of CO2e being sequestered.

Effects of Moringa on Growth Yield Snap Beans

Effects of Moringa on Growth Yield Snap Beans.Effects of Moringa on Growth Yield Snap Beans.

Extracts from fresh Moringa leaves could  be used to produce an effective plant growth enhancer, increasing yield.

ABSTRACT:
Two  field  experiments  were  carried  out  to  evaluate  the  effects  of  Moringa  leaf  extract  on  the growth,  yield and yield components  of snap bean. The results  showed  that Moringa  leaf extract applied at 11, 20, 33 and 50% concentration to snap bean plants at 10 days after emergence significantly (P = 0.05) increased vegetative growth, leaf chlorophyll content, plant dry matter (shoot and root), yield components  and fresh pod yield. The snap bean response  to increasing  Moringa extract  concentration  was  quadratic  with  respect  to  plant  height,  leaf  area,  leaf  number,  leaf chlorophyll   content,   shoot   dry  matter   and  root  dry  matter.   However,   Moringa   leaf  extract significantly (P = 0.05) reduced shoot and root water contents. Due to the Moringa extracts-induced increase in vegetative growth, leaf chlorophyll content, yield components and yield of snap beans, it was concluded that Moringa leaf extract could be used to enhance the growth and development  of snap beans.

Since  animal  protein  is  more  expensive than plant protein, legumes are important in less developed countries for the supply of relatively inexpensive proteins for rural and urban populations. However, grain yield of commercial crops of common beans is less than 1.0 tons/ha in most developing countries. In order to meet the rising food demand, emphasis has to be put on improving yields per hectare. This can be achieved  through  plant  breeding, biotechnology and application of plant growth regulators to positively modify plant growth to economic advantage.

Extracts  from fresh Moringa  leaves could  be used to produce an  effective  plant  growth  enhancer,  increasing yield  by  25-30%  for  nearly  any  crop  [5].  The active growth  enhancing  substances  in Moringa leaf  extract  are  reported  to  be  zeatin, dihydrozeatin and isopentyladenine which are natural  (endogenous)  cytokinins  [5,6].  The moringa  leaf is also composed  of proteins, minerals, vitamins, essential amino acids, glucosinolates, isothiocyanates and phenolics.

Moringa seeds reduce synthetic chemicals

Moringa seeds reduce synthetic chemicals.Moringa seeds reduce synthetic chemicals.

Moringa seeds used for separation of different materials.

Separation processes are very important in mining industries and the new knowledge could contribute to reduce the needs for expensive synthetic chemicals.

Previous studies have shown that the extracts from seeds of the Moringa oleifera tree can be used for water purification.

In a new study, researchers from Uppsala University show that the Moringa seeds can also be used for separation of different materials.

Moringa trees are known as ‘miracle’ trees because of their many uses as food and as a source of oil. Seeds from the trees are also used to purify water. The special properties of the protein in the seeds have been studied by a group from Uppsala University in collaboration with the Polytechnic of Namibia, Windhoek, and the Institut Laue-Langevin in Grenoble, France.

New results published in the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science suggest that Moringa seeds could be used for separation of different materials rather than just removal of all impurities. Separation processes are very important in mining industries to remove valuable material from waste. This further application of a natural product would reduce the needs for expensive synthetic chemicals. Continue reading

Moringa Mania

Moringa Mania.

The potential of the Moringa Oleifera.

Why Moringa. The world’s population is projected to be 40 percent higher by 2050.

And yet our farmland is shrinking every year.

16.5921 million ha of rural land has been permanently lost in the last 25 years to highways, shopping malls, poorly planned sprawl and other development, according to a new analysis by the American Farmland Trust.  Of that amount, 9.30777 million ha (an area the size of Indiana) was agricultural land.  The rate of recent farmland loss has been an astounding acre per minute.

A 60 percent increase in food prices is predicted by 2050…and those costs could rise even higher after natural or manmade environmental catastrophes. http://switchboard.nrdc.org/blogs/kbenfield/were_losing_an_acre_of_farmlan.html

Moringa is picking up steam in parts of the world where it’s never even been heard of. That’s how the Moringa market, estimated to be worth more than $4 billion per year today, is projected to be worth $7 billion by 2020.

One of the biggest and best solutions to the world’s malnutrition problems is the Moringa tree. Points out what a few people on the planet already know and what most people on the planet will recognize sooner or late.

The Moringa tree – Moringa Oleifera – Is jam-packed with nutritional value. On a gram per gram basis, Moringa has twice the protein of yogurt, seven times the vitamin C of oranges, four times the vitamin A of carrots, and four times as much calcium as milk. It’s also been associated with cholesterol reduction, balancing of blood sugar, and it even has antibacterial properties. http://www.smallcapnetwork.com/The-Only-Way-to-Invest-in-Moringa-Mania/s/via/10/article/view/p/mid/3/id/611/
