Moringa Oleifera extract use as bio-fertilizer during drought

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).

Training Workshop on Food Safety and Quality for SME in Cambodia.

It is important for people to understand how their behavior and activities contribute to the safety of food and how they can decrease the risk of foodborne illness. From processes on the farm to practices in the kitchen, human activities play an important role in food safety.

Food quality is the quality characteristics of food that is acceptable to consumers. This includes external factors as appearance (size, shape, colour, gloss, and consistency), texture, and flavour; factors such as federal grade standards (e.g. of eggs) and internal (chemical, physical, microbial).

What are the Organic Moringa with Organic Turmeric benefits:
An active compound within turmeric is Curcumin “Curcumin is a very powerful anti-inflammatory agent,” said Professor Manohar Garg, director of the nutraceuticals research program at the University of Newcastle.

Because inflammation is linked to a range of chronic conditions and diseases, among them arthritis, Alzheimer’s and heart disease, researchers argue Curcumin could help reduce the risk of those diseases by limiting inflammation in the body……

Moringa is full of healthy micro-nutrients, the many studies and proofs are an example of this.

The art of drying Moringa leaves

The art of drying Moringa leaves

The art of drying Moringa leaves

We researched many years how to dry Moringa leaves, now we know more…

We have ever started drying leaves outside because we didn’t know better ….

Then from washing machine dryers to gas dryers, layer dryers to automated dry machines with temperature, air and moisture control. We have learned a lot to where we are now and we learn every day. There is only one way, testing, testing and testing until you have achieved the desired result …. but test on which?

Customers like long shelf life, beautiful green color leaves (powder), tasty taste and high nutritional value for a reasonable price.

What does the customer want or demands?
You can test for long shelf life, you can test for nutritional value, you can test on beautiful color, taste or test on a nice average …

There have been several studies on the drying of Moringa leaves, which we are all very pleased with, because there are lots of things to learn, but there should be more, we can use so much information.
But you have to do it yourself, self-learning and self-knowledge and exploit its capabilities and optimize, only then are you able to each specific customer requirement.

So we start testing with different drying machines, different times, different temperatures, constant humidity measurement, nutritional value, taste, color, shelf life and cost price of any final product.

This is your Moringa end product.

If there are people wondering why we don’t report the results here, I do not mind if some things are copied but I’ve been working on it for a long time and still working on it …..

If you have questions regarding this article, please let me know.

Till the next time,
Kind regards, Jan

*) ps : I have left the testing of Chemical characteristics out of this, because I think it is obvious that products are being tested and controlled when making food.

Four Different Moringa Species

Four Different Moringa Species.

Characteristics of seeds and kernels of Moringa-species.

A research from, Department of Livestock Sciences, Research Institute of Organic Agriculture, Frick, Switzerland.

The family Moringaceae is monogeneric and has 13 Moringa species
See the list here.
Moringa Oleifera, has more records of various kinds of research in scientific databases than of all the other 12 species combined. It has been found that all parts of Moringa Oleifera can be used.
For medicinal purposes, all parts of the plant (roots, leaves, seeds, bark, gum and flower) have been used to treat a multitude of diseases and deficiencies (Anwar et al., 2007).

Seed and leaf material from four different Moringa species were collected from all kind of countries to analyses them on Proximate Composition, Amino and Fatty Acid Profiles and Element Compositions.

Very interesting is to see the below table, the necessary amount of leaf dry matter intake (g) to cover 15% of the daily requirement of a child for the given nutrient of Moringa leaves. Requirement values from Golden (2009), with data from FAO where available, otherwise data from other sources (e.g. Institute of Medicine, IOM).
