Who is growing faster Weed or Moringa in rain season.

The Moringa tree grows incredibly fast but Weeds too.
It is September, in the middle of the heavy rainy season of Cambodia.

It is hard to catch in the rainy season with weed control.
The weeds beat the fast-growing Moringa.

Man and power are used to remove the weeds without pesticides.

So also start growing new moringa trees again but this time in leaves from a local tree.

But a lot of extra work because all the leaves have to be pre-folded into a pot that will contain the Moringa seed. Needless to say what a job this is.

S5 Moringa Workshop at Baca-Villa

S5 Moringa Workshop at Baca-Villa

S5 Moringa Workshop at Baca-Villa

5S is a simple tool for organizing your workplace in a clean, efficient and safe manner to enhance your productivity, visual management and to ensure the introduction of standardized working.

The 5S method, which takes its name from the first letter of each of the five operations, is a Japanese management technique derived from the Toyota Production System (TPS). It is based on 5 simple principles.

5S-Workshop-Method-2

5 Steps of Seiri, Seiton, Seiso, Seiketsu and Shitsuke:

  1. Seiri :  sort means eliminating anything that is unnecessary for the equipment to work properly.
  2. Seiton :  straightening is the best way of eliminating pointless searching and having all the material necessary for functional production according to the principle: “a place for everything and everything in its place.”
  3. Seiso :  shining means keeping everything so clean that it shines.
    In a clean environment, any leak or other abnormality can be detected faster.
    Working in a clean environment improves motivation and safety. This is a prerequisite for quality maintenance.
  4. Seiketsu :  standardizing means respecting the previous 3S.
    The 3S are actions to take; so that cleanliness and elimination of the causes of untidiness become the norm, it is essential to write them down as ordinary rules, as standards.
    Seiketsu helps to overcome the natural tendency to slovenliness and a return to old habits.
  5. Shitsuke : sustain after a period of 3 to 6 months (depending on the size and complexity of the workshop), the time has come to evaluate the situation by means of an in-depth audit. The audit is based on a very precise questionnaire, which assesses the previous 4S, and which leads, if successful – to the site being certified.

Moringa Oleifera Leaves for Use in Clinical Studies.

New method for extracting the beneficial compounds in Moringa identified

Cold (isothiocyanates-rich) moringa leaf powder teas will have the greatest chemoprotection potential.

A team of researchers from the Cullman Chemoprotection Center at Johns Hopkins University and the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México led by Dr. Jed Fahey has developed a convenient and household-friendly method of extracting the beneficial compounds present in Moringa, a tropical plant native to central and southern Asia. The findings were published on July 9 in “Plant Food, Nutrition, and Human Health,” a special issue of the journal Nutrients.
https://chemoprotectioncenter.org/new-method-for-extracting-the-beneficial-compounds-in-moringa-identified/
Posted July 12, 2019 by Teresa Johnson

“The cold teas delivered a known dose of isothiocyanate. For clinical studies this is actually better because we know exactly what we’re delivering to people,” said Fahey. “We think this will be a great delivery vehicle in clinical trials involving children who have autism.”

Identifying the efficiency of these phytochemical extraction methods for creating teas from moringa will facilitate the delivery of moringa tea to both adults and children in future clinical trials to gauge their effects on a wide range of health conditions, including autism, diabetes, and hypertension.

Baca-Villa PPP Organic sustainable supply chain Workshop at Cambodia

Baca-Villa PPP Organic sustainable supply chain Workshop at Cambodia.Baca-Villa PPP Organic sustainable supply chain Workshop at Cambodia.

Baca-Villa built the PPP project with local partners together with Pierre Fabre.

In June 2019, Baca-Villa organised a workshop for the project “Establishment of Education Partnerships and Qualification of Supply Chains in the Cambodian Agricultural Sector”. Baca-Villa is  a private Cambodian company which exports organic Moringa leaves. Baca-Villa built the PPP project with local partners together with Pierre Fabre, a French private company, Pierre Fabre. Baca-Villa is committed in different projects of development of new supply chain. This event follows a previous workshop on the extraction of seed oil by pressing, performed by Xavier PAGES (international oil pressing expert).

Before this workshop, a 2 days visit in the fields was the opportunity to explain the different steps of production, the organization between Baca-Villa and the farmers and to bring back examples of items for improving the quality. “This visit was a great opportunity for me to understand the organization, to make a short risk analysis of the environment and to promote good agricultural practices like hedges to increase biodiversity” explains Alexandre PANEL, the agronomist and quality of sustainable supply chain manager of Pierre Fabre.

The agronomist manager from Pierre Fabre was coming to share his experience on sustainable supply chain of herbs used in nutraceutic and cosmetic products. The main aims of this workshop were to :

  • Explain the different factors of herbs quality when you use it as a raw material for nutraceutical or cosmetic industry
  • Present the main standards of quality for agricultural, nutraceutical and cosmetic ingredients and especially what are the questions during such a customer’s audit
  • Explain the HACCP methodology and the documents asked for a cosmetic ingredient homologation
  • Explain what are the different items of sustainability on a supply chain of herbs, and what does the customers and the final consumer expect

Some examples of sustainable supply chain in Pierre Fabre products and how it is explained to the consumer.

In Siem Reap, the workshop on sustainable supply chain was organised during 3 days. 25 people belonging to different network joined this meeting: 10 people working for Baca-Villa c; 6 people working from the Institute of Technology of Cambodia with researchers specialized in food processing; teachers from the university of agronomy ; NGOs like Action Against Hunger… We shared examples of farmers ‘production all around the world to secure the industrial supply chain thanks a sustainable approach. The explanation of the agricultural, nutraceutical and cosmetic standards helps to start new project with trust.

During this workshop, different exchanges on legal minimum cost of work, child labour, hygienic rules in farms were hold. The main subjects were how can we improve the training of the farmers (who don’t know how to write) to be organic certified? What kind of tools can we use to train the farmers on the rules of traceability? With some examples in Madagascar, we shared some tools like pictures to explain the best time for harvest. To be sure that the farmers are committed to the new supply chain, in Brazil, NGOs make a survey to select the most committed community and organise workshops to train the farmers on good agricultural practices. “The key of success of sustainable supply chain is the well understanding of what all the third parties expect, from farmers to final consumers. A good sustainable supply chain contributes to secure industrial business and share the value at all the steps of production” says Alexandre PANEL, agronomist and quality of sustainable supply chain manager in Pierre Fabre.

So three wonderful days to share all those experience from Pierre Fabre and its approach Green Mission Pierre Fabre with Cambodian private company and NGO and researchers thanks a program financed by German cooperation.

project partnership

The project partners Pierre Fabre and Baca Villa will jointly work on the proposed develoPPP.de project. Both project partners will set-up a team of experts who will engage in the training of farmers, technical staff and students. For the project supervision, suPPPort ltd. will be engaged, a sustainability consultancy with thorough experience in develoPPP.de projects. 

Official
Project Launch

a develoPPP.de – project

Agriculture plays a prominent role in the everyday livelihoods of more than 56% of the total working-age population of Cambodia. Still, most families in rural remote areas do not have access to qualified education. Due to their financial situation and missing educational infrastructure, farmers have a lack of knowledge on cultivation improvement and new technologies. Organisations, companies or private institutions offering agricultural education are very often expensive and the education is very theoretical without necessary practical exposure.

Furthermore, the awareness of farmers and technical staff for international organic standards is very low. The International Organic Standard and the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety are becoming more important to compete in the international agriculture sector. Hence, qualified education in these topics were needed to be addressed.

In scope of the project, Pierre Fabre and Baca Villa will jointly tackle the farmers’ education in organic farming and cultivation of plants and herbs for vegetable oil manufacturing. They will train technical staff in the oil pressing process to convert plants and herbs into high-value oil, which may later be used for nutraceutical and cosmetic applications in Pierre Fabre’s products. Through the set-up of an external control lab and the support of Pierre Fabre in technical experts trainings, Baca Villa will be able to ensure that vegetable oils provided to Pierre Fabre and other international and local customers, meet the highest quality standards.

OBJECTIVES

Baca-Villa-Employees
Organic-Moringa-Leaves-Cambodia-web
OPening-Community-centre-speech-27-10-2017

In the framework of the project, technical staff of Baca Villa and farmers will be trained in the skills needed to run an organic herb supply chain.  Each year Baca Villa technicians will receive training trough Pierre Fabre in the field of sustainable supply chain management and in the field of plant extraction. The trained technicians will pass on this knowledge with regard to oil manufacturing to technical experts in a 10-month education program (ToT) at Baca Villa. Also, employees of Baca Villa will receive training in BRC Global Standard for Food Safety which is regarded as the benchmark for compliance to best practice in food industry standards; and is an internationally recognized mark of food safety, quality and responsibility. 

Since the cultivation and farming of organic plants and herbs is the crucial first step in the supply chain, Baca Villa will train 100 Cambodian farmers in the Ecocert Organic Standard. After the successful training of 50 farmers in the first year, another 50 farmers will be trained in the second year. The goal is that at least 50 farmers will receive organic certification by Ecocert by the end of the project.

The farmers will be selected according to a criteria catalogue, including hard aspects as location of the farm, previous usage of pesticides, previous farmed products, watering of the field (where does it come from); as well as soft aspects as willingness to change and learn, attitude of farmer, poverty level (poorer farmers preferred).

The farmers will receive  workshops every second month. The workshops will be provided at the Baca Villa facilities as well as directly on the farms. CEDAC and the project partners Pierre Fabre and Baca Villa ensure the transport of the farmers to the venue and back. The content of the workshops will cover:

  • – Cultivation of organic plants and herbs
  • – Organic farming without pesticides
  • – Use of natural (organic) fertilizer and pesticides, which are allowed and approved by International organic law.
  • – Hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP)
  • – Good Agriculture and Collection Practices (GACP)
  • – Quality standards
  • – Post-harvest services
  • – Food safety
  • – General life skills, income management, health and safety, hygiene

To foster knowledge-transfer to the industry, Baca Villa will also engage with the  DGRV – Deutsche Genossenschafts- und Raiffeisenverband e. V. based in Phnom Penh. The DGRV is connected to many local stakeholders that foster cooperatives in the agricultural sector. Also, Pierre Fabre and Baca Villa will cooperate with the Department of Chemical Engineering and Food Technology of ITC in order to build the capacity through knowledge and technical transfer and set-up  quality control activities related to plant-based ingredient at the ITC. Baca Villa will invite partner institutions to  annual workshops and various events to share know-how.

IMPACT

The project is of high relevance for the developing country Cambodia, since theoretical and practical education is largely missing in the agriculture sector. Furthermore, goals in the project correlate with the Sustainable Development Goals (Agenda 2030) by the United Nations.

Farmers

Within the project, at least 100 farmers will be trained in Ecocert Organic Standard, including international social, environmental and quality standards and thus gain a higher qualification and competitiveness. They will also receive practical skills training in organic farming, hygienic harvesting, prune, advanced of nursery and HACCP. These workshops and trainings provide the currently missing education, which is highly important for the development of the agriculture sector. As a result, farmers in the region are gaining in attractiveness and thus secure their future viability. Baca Villa is aiming to start long-term business relations with at least 50 out of the 100 trained farmers.
SDG 1: No Poverty; SDG 4: Quality Education; SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production; SDG 15: Life on Land)

Technical Operators

Technical operators are crucial for the development of the sector and the introduction of new technologies. Through the 10-months training at Baca Villa by the formerly trained technicians and lecturer, at least 20 well-educated technical operators will be trained. This higher education increases their job-opportunities and they are likely to gain a higher income. (SDG 4: Quality Education)

Agriculture Sector

The thorough training of farmers helps to ensure an organic supply chain that can meet international standards. Education of technical operators enhances the productivity and competitiveness of companies and will ensure jobs. Since Pierre Fabre educates farmers and technical operators in the region, not only Baca Villa, but also many other companies in the region, which have similar professional backgrounds, will benefit from skilled future employees. These will contribute decisively to the agriculture sector’s development in the region. (SDG 1: No Poverty; SDG 4: Quality Education; SDG 12: Responsible Consumption and Production; SDG 15: Life on Land)

Academia

Students and lecturers will benefit from the project, since the education partnerships will give them access to international know-how and connectivity to the industry. (SDG 4: Quality Education)

Genomics uncovers the mystery of the magic drumstick tree—Moringa oleifera

by National Centre for Biological Sciences

This study shows that the leaves contain 30 times more iron and 100 times more calcium than spinach. “Indeed, iron, zinc and magnesium transporters were found to be highly abundant in the roots and stem parts of this tree,” says Dr. Naseer Pasha (1), first author of the paper.

The moringa (drumstick) tree has medicinal value and is a rich source of nutrients and minerals. Traditionally, its parts are known to confer multiple benefits, including anti-diabetic (leaves), cardio-protective (roots), anti-fertility (roots), anti-inflammatory (roots), anti-microbial (roots), anti-oxidative (leaves, flowers), anti-obesity (leaves) effects. Additionally, the seeds have been used for water purification and as lubricant oil, among other benefits.

A team of scientists led by Prof. R. Sowdhamini at the National Centre for Biological Sciences (NCBS), Bengaluru, has recently deciphered the moringa transcriptome by purifying and sequencing RNA from five different tissues (root, stem, flower, seed and leaf) of the tree. The tree tissues were collected from the Gandhi Krishi Vigyan Kendra campus of the University of Agricultural Sciences, Bengaluru. The sequencing data were analyzed using a combination of computational algorithms and wet-lab approaches. A full report has been published in the journal Genomics.

Moringa leaves, flowers and pods are commonly consumed. This study shows that the leaves contain 30 times more iron and 100 times more calcium than spinach. “Indeed, iron, zinc and magnesium transporters were found to be highly abundant in the roots and stem parts of this tree,” says Dr. Naseer Pasha (1), first author of the paper. One of the key enzymes required for the production of vitamin C is also expressed at a significant ratio, in all the five tissues studied.

This tree of sub-Himalayan origin requires very little attention and can survive in arid regions. The transcriptome data indicates multiple stress-responsive genes such as C2H2 and Myb gene families. Together, it provides compelling evidence that this plant is a “superfood,” and can provide nutritional sustenance during droughts.

A total of 36 candidate genes were tracked in this study from all five tissues. These include the synthesizing enzymes for compounds (flavonoids, terpenoids, vitamins and alkaloids like moringine) and transporters of minerals. Among these, the bioactive compounds of medicinal value such as quercetin (effective in metabolic disorders) and its synthesizing enzymes are observed more in leaves and flowers. Kaempferol (effective as anti-cancer agent) was observed to be abundant in the flowers.

The transcript of an enzyme that enables the synthesis of moringine/ benzylamine, usually observed in bacteria, is highly expressed in Moringa seeds. Moringine is perhaps transported to the roots and is known to improve glucose tolerance and lipid metabolism in mammals. The Ursolic acid and Oleanolic acid products and synthesizing enzymes are observed more in the roots and are known to act as anti-fertility and anti-cancer agents. “A total of 17000 transcripts have been observed and it was a bioinformatics challenge to identify the candidate genes,” says Dr. Adwait Joshi who is part of the team. Sowdhamini’s group combined and compared the data with the already available Moringa oleifera genome sequence from a group in China (Tian et al., 2015).

“Uncovering the details of the enzymes that lend Moringa its medicinal values, demonstrates the power of genomics. Together, with the commercial applications, such as the use of Moringa leaves in water purification and oleic acid in the oil extracts, this study could pave the way for this plant in the field of biotechnology,” says Prof. R. Sowdhamini. Like with the paper on Tulsi (2), this is yet another attempt by the research group to unravel the mysteries of Indian medicinal plants.

Our organic farm house at the country side of Cambodia

Just back from our almost new organic farm, 3 hours traveling from Siem Reap, 38 Degrees, very hot very very hot.

In the Ac wagon I enjoy the beautiful surroundings, everything dry but also super beautiful.

Once arrived I already see the new wooden house with metal roof, the road still needs to be improved but everything is in its time.

In the midst of all the forests and mountains around us I can see all the little Moringa trees from far away. Entire rows up to the horizon, between small water pipes that have to provide some water for irrigation.

Wrapped up in a big hat, I walk around, wow what a heat the heat radiates from the sand.

April 2019 it is Cambodian New Year but here people just work far away from the city where all the festivities take place. Their life is very different, working so that they have food tomorrow. Live from what grows. People live a hard life here.

The neighbor fold comes running with an empty bucket to fill it with our water, she rinses her face, wash her hands a little and the rest home for the daily family need water.

Pips-everywhere

Pips-Everywhere-kaffirLime

Pips Every where also for the kaffir-Lime

Around 5 pm Phea will be watering all plants, also quite a lot of all hoses coupled with small tapes open so that they all get a little water. Through a complex water system, the water can get everywhere, but I can understand that for many farmers, all that material, water, pumps, petrol, pipes, etc. is not available for ordinary farmers.

By-Tuk-Tuk

Then Phea brings me around in the tuk tuk, what a country so big.
Beautiful to see!
He explains to me in which part we are going to grow, leaves for Powder, Tea and tablets. Moringa trees for the seeds and oil, the Kaffir Lime, the sunflower, the lemongrass, the turmeric etc etc. great to hear how everything is worked out.

Night-Farm

In the evening we sit with our neighbors on a mat eating on the ground outside, dogs walk around us to be allowed to eat a bite.
We got a big bag of ice and a pack of beer, well that goes in….

Women pack the kids well, plenty of mosquito’s here.

At night I hardly sleep so hot, I drift away with sweat.

sleeping-room

But once in the morning what a beautiful blue sky, the many birds that make themselves heard, the silence, the endless space ….. it is significantly cooler now 27 degrees what a relief then you can work for a while until the sun comes out again let hear.

What is important to be present on the land and to spend the night and see and feel what it is like on the land, only then do you get respect for the people who work there and what grows before it is on a plate, ready for us.

I hope I can enjoy this beautiful country for a very long time with the wonderfully optimistic people who always have the courage no matter how tough it is. I am ready to go again.

Solar drying in Cambodia

Solar drying in Cambodia.

Solar drying in Cambodia.

Because of our very long experience in all kinds of drying techniques, we have become exclusive supplier of this brand Solar dryers in Cambodia.

Solar drying of agricultural food products is one of the most attractive and cost-effective applications of solar energy.

As one kind of inexhaustible, safe, energy saving, environmental protective new energy, solar energy is getting more and more attention in this world.

Advance: time saving, weather resistance (wind and rain are not anymore an obstacle), higher hygienic standards is higher product quality and color & taste, less pollution, no fungus, no animal, higher nutrients value, inside temperature control & increase income.

In view of the high demand of energy resources and nonsustainability of conventional energy sources, such as fossil fuels, it is imperative to continue to explore alternative methods of drying in a sustainable and more effective and efficient way, making use of renewable energy sources.

Drying is simply a process in which agricultural products can be preserved for future use by removing enough moisture from the crops in order to avoid decomposition, since moisture in many categories of agricultural produce makes them prone to perish more easily, especially in tropical climatic conditions.

Solar energy remains a viable and economical means of preservation of agricultural products, since the heat from solar energy can be applied in either traditional open air drying or with specially designed solar thermal dryers to prevent post-harvest losses which are a common phenomenon in many developing countries.

What can you use Solar for?
For all vegetables that can be dried, herbs, seeds, carrots, spices and for all fruits. Anything that can be dried can be used for this.

The solar dryer decreased the mass of cassava from 30.8 kg to 17.4 kg within 13 and 9 h at average temperatures of 40 °C and 45 °C, respectively. The moisture content of cassava decreased from 61% (wet basis) to 10.5%, see the pictures of drying mango and jack fruit. Other products as chili, fermented cocoa beans, coffee berries, banana, papaya, sliced meat, seaweed, fish and it has great potential for application in the rural areas.
