Moringa helps farmers.

Monthly 2-days Moringa organic training


Natural pesticide education

That the Moringa tree is a special tree we already knew, and that this tree is known from fresh, cooked or dried leaves without loss of nutritional value as vitamins, calcium, iron, antioxidants and the 9 essential amino acids is known.

Moringa helps farmers. But that this Moringa tree also ensures that farmers get a better life is less known. These farmers who until recently cultivated cassava or bananas or corn etc where after the harvest was not paid the promised price is widely known. Moringa farmers receive a predetermined price for their harvest on contract so that the farmers can also work on their future, send their children to school, have water and a toilet and thus build a better social life.


2-days Monthly Farmers Training at Cambodia Organic Moringa farms

No improvement without education:
Our farmers receive every Month a 2-day training in agriculture, says CEO and Founder Jan Camp of Baca-Villa Productions Co Ltd from Cambodia.
It is very important to us that all parties are thought of, not just the business model.
If you want to deliver quality to your customers you have to start with the farmers.
Everyone likes to hear the term social responsibility but forget how it arises and what you have to do to really do and be.

Consumers will also have to understand that something more will have to be paid for this.
Small scales, biodiversity, sustainable organic products without pesticides as opposed to large-scale chemistry agriculture industry costs a little more and really not much more, your health is worth more.

Everyone talks today about supply chain but forget that if we do not have farmers we have no products. Paying attention to the farmers there begins everything and that is education. We explain to farmers how to increase biodiversity why that is important. We explain why organic farming is much better and how do you grow that. We explain techniques that can generate higher yields. Then you work on a perfect supply chain.
Women play an important role in this, they manage the money and work hard, says Jan.



Organic Moringa Flower

From Moringa seeds we can increase the Moringa farms for leaves. We will continue to expand the oil properties of the Moringa, and there is a future for the farmers. By growing the Moringa trees only for oil means a new future for many farmers, from the seeds and flowers of the Moringa we can get a lot out of them, Extracting the flowers, cold press of the Moringa seeds, the demand is enormous and will only but increase. Form the seeds we can make many Oil products, for the food chain, for the cosmetics industry, pure diesel, water purification etc etc too many to mention.


Here, too, it is important that our own staff also receive education, because extracting oil and pressing is a technique that you have to learn the latest techniques, and learn about international requirements.

Education and Moringa must be closely linked to each other.
Through collaboration with Universities and a good professional quality department, new Moringa products can also emerge.

The Moringa market is still in full swing in the coming years, but do not forget the farmers when you buy a product.

Data show that Moringa “is experiencing explosive growth”, with a growth of 460% between 2014-2017 …. That promised some more for the coming years, we can still make many farmers happy.

Enjoy your Moringa 😉

Fresh Organic Lemongrass

Refreshing, citrus-scented lemongrass imparts a unique flavor to the recipes. It’s rough, tufted stems and leaf buds are among the most sought-after herbal parts employed in an array of cuisine all over South and East Asian regions so also in Cambodia.

Botanically, this herb belongs to the grass family of Poaceae. Scientific name: Cymbopogon citratus. The herb is one of the popular ingredients used in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Indonesia and as far as African and American continents for its culinary and medicinal purposes.

Scientific name: Zingiber officinale.

Lemongrass (Cymbopogon) grows in dense clumps that emerge from the tough bulbous base with a spread of about one meter width and about three feet in height. Its bright green leaves with sharp edges feature in appearance similar to that of grass. It flourishes in fertile, well-draining sandy soils under tropical climates receiving torrential rains.

Several cultivars of Cymbopogon based upon their origin, culinary, and oil properties grew around the world at commercial levels. East-Indian lemongrass (C. citratus) is an important culinary herb used extensively in the cooking in many East Asian countries. The Indian or Malabar lemongrass (C. flexuosus), on the contrary, employed predominantly in the perfume industry due to its limited myrcene content.

Health benefits of lemongrass

  • Lemongrass herb has numerous health benefiting essential oils, chemicals, minerals and vitamins that are known to have anti-oxidant and disease preventing properties.
  • The herb carries 99 calories per 100 g but contains no cholesterol.
  • The chief chemical component in lemongrass herb is citral or lemonal, an aldehyde responsible for its unique lemon Citral also has strong antimicrobial and antifungal properties.
  • Additionally, its herb parts also carry other essential oils such as myrcene, citronellol, methyl heptanone, di pentene, geraniol, limonene, geranyl acetate, nerol, These compounds are known to have counter-irritant, rubefacient, insecticidal, antifungal and anti-septic properties.
  • Its leaves and stems are very good in folate (100 g leaves and stem provide about 75 µg or 19% of RDA). Folates play a vital role in cell division and DNA synthesis. When given during the peri-conception period, they can help prevent neural tube defects in the baby.
  • Its herb parts are also rich in many invaluable essential vitamins such as pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B-6) and thiamin (vitamin B-1). These vitamins are essential in the sense that body requires them from external sources to replenish.
  • Furthermore, fresh herb contains small amounts of anti-oxidant vitamins such as vitamin-C and vitamin-A.

Lemon grass herb, whether fresh or dried, is a rich source of minerals like potassium, zinc, calcium, iron, manganese, copper, and magnesium. Potassium is an important component of cell and body fluids, which helps control heart rate and blood pressure. The human body uses manganese as a co-factor for the antioxidant enzyme, superoxide dismutase.

This review focuses on the detailed phytochemical composition, medicinal uses, along with pharmacological properties of different parts of this multipurpose tree.

Always consult a doctor if you want to use the Moringa as a medical line.

As you can see, the medical properties are incredibly large but a lot more research needs to be done. So many things have not yet been investigated or should be further intensively investigated. I hope that we all continue researching the beautiful properties of this Moringa plant so that in the future we can benefit even more from the Moringa.

In Cambodia too, we do a lot of research into the Moringa possibilities, but then as a food supplement with leaves, oil extract and cold press together with other companies, Universities and consultancies.
We are working hard on improvements in the growth of the Moringa tree and potential future opportunities for the Moringa in the Food and Oil sector. We also help prevent malnutrition and help farmers improve agricultural opportunities through monthly education.

The benefits from Organic products.

Consumers increasingly want to be sure that they will not eat any chemical pesticides and medicines which are generally used to treat regular fruit, veg, meat and fish.

Not only the emission of contamination in nature such as oil, waste, incineration all contributes to pollution of our environment and therefore also our food.

That is why Organic came on the market, fresh products that do not contain chemical fertilizers, pesticides or other artificial substances.

The Independent newspaper about Organic “Eating organic food lowers risk of certain cancers, study suggests. Less exposure to chemical pesticides may be key to reduced rates, research indicates. Because of their lower exposure to pesticide residues, it can be hypothesised that high organic food consumers may have a lower risk of developing cancer,” said lead author Julia Baudry. “If the findings are confirmed, promoting organic food consumption in the general population could be a promising preventive strategy against cancer.” published an article at:

Moringa Oleifera extract use as bio-fertilizer during drought.

Moringa Oleifera extract use as bio-fertilizer during drought.


A biofertilizer (also bio-fertilizer) is a substance which contains living microorganisms which, when applied to seeds, plant surfaces, or soil, colonize the rhizosphere or the interior of the plant and promotes growth by increasing the supply or availability of primary nutrients to the host plant. An extract is a substance made by extracting a part of a raw material.

Moringa leaves extracts can be used to alleviate the adverse effect of water deficit stress. Research has shown that Moringa Oleifera leaves extract offers a solution. 

In dry areas, agriculture is a recurrent problem, water!
Without water, no, low or bad harvest!

Drought caused significant decreases in growth parameters (shoot and root length, fresh and dry weight of shoots and roots) and photosynthetic pigments (chlorophyll a, chlorophyll b, carotenoids and total pigments).

Drought is abiotic stress limiting factors of plant growth and yields thus negatively affect production of over 25% of world agriculture. Deficit of soil water caused significant reduction in photochemical activities in some plants, reduction in the activities of enzymes responsible for some processes like respiration, translocation, hormone balance, macro and micro nutrients uptake and metabolism (Rohbakhsh, 2013).

Moringa leaf extract (MLE 30) could trigger the activation of physiological compounds persist in plants to alleviate the oxidative damage causing by drought, leading to improvements in physiological and biochemical aspects for the plant growth under drought conditions.

Moringa oleifera leaves extract (MLE) is the most natural plant growth enhancer, has no cost and enhance the tolerance of plants under different environmental conditions like drought. Drought stress has destructive effect on the content of cytokinin in plant. On the other hand, the high level of zeatin makes Moringa leaves extract (MLE) more effective as a natural compound promoting plant tolerance under stress conditions (Zaki & Rady, 2015).

Inorganic ions such as nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), potassium (K) have important roles in plant mechanisms. The decline in soil water actually reduces nutrient ions uptake and nutrient transport in plants (Sardans & Penuelas, 2012).The inhibition in nutrient uptake by plants under water stress is related to reduction in transpiration process, impaired active transport and membrane permeability (Tanguilig et al., 1987).

Leaf extract of Moringa Oleifera plants has been reported to be a rich source of many minerals such as Ca, P, Na, Mg, K, Fe and others that can be valorized for nutrition balance in plants (Moyo et al., 2011).

Moringa leaf extract fertilization. Sivakumar & Ponnusami (2011) realized the increased uptake and accumulations of some nutritive elements as N, K, Ca, Mg and P as well as Fe in roots and shoots of several plants by using Moringa leaf extract. MLE is supposed to accelerate the nutrient uptake and translocation through the plant by increasing the root membranes permeability for electrolytes, preventing nutrients fixation and increasing its mobility in soil.



Results presented in Table, showed that, plant growth parameters (shoot and root length, fresh and dry weights of shoots and roots) of drought stressed Glycine max plants were affected. Data showed that the effect of drought on plant increased according to decreased water hold capacity (60% and 40% hold water capacity). It was decreased significantly with increasing drought stress as compared with control plants. Further, spraying Moringa Oleifera leaf extract (MLE30) alone caused a noticeable improvement in all of mentioned growth parameters compared to untreated plants, indicating the higher efficiency of growth, development in the presence of (MLE30) supplementation.

Conclusion: The present results suggest that Moringa leaf extract (MLE 30) could trigger the activation of physiological compounds persist in plants to alleviate the oxidative damage causing by drought, leading to improvements in physiological and biochemical aspects for the plant growth under drought conditions. Moringa leaves extracts can be used to alleviate the adverse effect of water deficit stress.

The Moringa leaf extract (MLE) is consider as a natural plant growth regulator where, it is a source of zeatin which it is natural derivative of cytokinin, proteins, vitamins E, phenolics, ascorbates, essential amino acid and several mineral elements, making to putting it as a potential natural growth stimulant, as mentioned by Emongor (2012), Rady et al. (2013), Howladar (2014) and Rady et al. (2015). Other reports have been showed that Moringa extract play as a plant hormone which enhances seed germination, growth and yield of crops. MLE foliar spray improved crop performance, resulting from its role on vigorous plant growth, maintained optimum tissue water status, improved membranes stability, enhanced antioxidant content, as mentioned by Anwar and Bhanger (2003), Nagar et al. (2006) Yasmeen et al. (2012), Yasmeen et Middle East J. Agric. Res., 6(2): 448-463, 2017 ISSN: 2077-4605 449 al. (2013) and Rehman et al. (2014). Continue reading
