Nutritional analysis reveals that Moringa leaves contain all the essential amino acids and wealth of complementary vitamins and minerals. In fact, they contain larger amounts of several important nutrients than the common foods often associated with these nutrients. These include; Vitamin C (7times the Vitamin C of Oranges), Vitamin A (4 times the Vitamin A of Carrots), Calcium (4 times the Calcium of Milk), Potassium (3 times the Potassium of Bananas), and Proteins (2 times the protein of Yoghurt).
Many Scientists have carried out series of researches on Moringa. Foidl and Reyes revealed in their experiments that, Moringa trees can be planted very close together as a field crop, at a spacing as close as ten to fifteen centimeters. The moringa plants then grow as a field crop, and can be harvested frequently. This technique produces a large amount of usable green matter from a relatively small amount of space.
Both Foidl and Reyes have also experimented with using Moringa leaves and green shoots as a supplement in livestock fodder. Foidl found that adding Moringa leaves to cattle feed increased their daily weight gain by up to 32 percent. They also experimented with Moringa and milk cows. Foidl supplemented with 15 to 17 kilograms of fresh Moringa leaves daily, and the cattle’s milk production increased by 43 percent. Reyes supplemented his milk cows’ feed with 2 kg dry matter of Moringa per day, and milk production increased by 58 percent. Then he supplemented with 3 kg dry matter per day, and milk production increased by 65 percent.
Research has also shown that, spraying with moringa extract on the leaves of crops like sugarcane, soybeans, corn, turnips, black beans, red beans, white beans, cow peas, bell peppers, chia, sunflowers, mung beans, onions, coffee, tea, chili peppers, melons and sorghum increased crop yield. Foidl estimates that more than 4,400 cubic meters of methane could be produced per hectare of Moringa per year.
