Moringa Energy Project: Opportunities, strategies and priorities

CJP hosts international sessions on Moringa oleifera

Moringa oleifera is one of the world’s wonder crops, packed with nutrients in all its plant parts, especially in leaves, pods, flowers, seeds and roots, which are traditionally used by people to prevent diseases. Moringa seed oil is popularly referred as ‘ben oil’ which has cosmetic and edible values and also used as high value lubricants. Additionally, moringa oil has been evaluated and proven as a potential biodiesel resource. Moringa is an exceptionally nutritious vegetable tree with a variety of potential uses.The seeds as a source of edible oil and the seed cake for water purification. India is the largest producer of moringa with an annual production of 1.10 to 1.30 million tones of tender fruits from an area of 38,000 ha.

On realizing the potentiality of moringa as a nutritional security provider and the high value energy crop, much importance is attached globally. Global Moringa Meet 2012 - an international Workshop presented by the Center For Jatropha Promotion & Biodiesel (CJP) - promises to be an important event in exploring best production practices, best horticultural practices, best harvesting practices and best value addition. To be held November 25-26, 2012 at Jaipur India, it is a “must attend” for all stakeholders to know the latest research and development activities and to reap the fullest potential of Moringa.

A new grower has many questions in mind while planning Moringa oleifera farming viz:

Next, given that the industry is marking milestones with the development and commercialization of Moringa-derived products - particularly in the Europe, South America, Africa and Asia Pacific region where the diverse market is growing immensely - we have lined-up these top experts and their sessions on High Value Added Ingredients from Moringa.

In short, this event is an excellent opportunity to:

  • Learn the views of the Moringa experts on Concepts, sources, bio diversity moringa Crop Science Crop Ecology Global genetic diversity and conservation of moringa
  • Receive Management Tips for Moringa growing from ground zero to Choice of Fields -Varieties - Seedbed Preparation -Planting Dates, Rates & Methods -Weed Management – Nutrient Management -Harvest Management -Crop Cleaning and Storage Management
  • Live demo of moringa oil/biodiesel production

The Global Moringa Meet showcases all aspects of Moringa Oleifera. The participants shall hear scientific knowledge, gain first-hand experience through in-depth experiments and discussion and explore innovative new ideas on how to prove the value of moringa farms and ultimately grow revenues at a time of economic downturn.
