Moringa Cultivation Methods
PKM1, PKM 2 and KM1.
Comes up well a wide range of soil. A deep sandy loan soil with a pH of 6.5-8 is optimum
500g/haSow tow seeds per pit at a depth of 2.5-3.0cm. The seeds can also be sown in the poly bags containing pot mixture and transplanted after 35-40 days of Sowing.
Preparatory cultivation :
Dig pits of size 45 Cm x 45 Cm x 45Cm with spacing of2.0-2.5m either way. Apply 15 Kgs of Compost of FYM/pit after mixing with top soil
After cultivation :
Gap filling may be done within a month. Pinch off the seedlings when they are about 75cm in height to facilitate more branching. Short duration vegetables like Cowpea, Bhendi and Tomato can be grown as intercrop.
A fertilizer dose of 45:15:30 g of NPK/pit may be applied 3 months after sowing. Apply 45 g of N/pit after 6 months when the crop is in bearing.
Irrigate before sowing and on the 3rd day after sowing and subsequently at 10-15 days interval according to soil type.
Plant Protection -Pests
Fruit Fly :
Spray dichlorvos(1ml/lit) of fenthion1.5ml/lit to control fruit flies when pods are about 20-30 days old. Rake the soil after applying lindane 1.3 at 25 kg/ha
Bud worm, leaf caterpillar and leaf webber:
Dust carbary 10 D at 25 kg/ha or spray carbarly 50WP @ g/lit
Hairy caterpillar :
Use flame torch when the caterpillars settle on the tree trunk
Spray chlorpyriphos 20 EC or quinalphos 25Ec @2ml/lit.
Ratoon Crop :
Cut back the trees at 90cm From Ground level after the harvest is over. In years. Apply the fertilizer dose of 45:15:30 g NPK/Plant, within a week after cutting back along with 25 kg of FYM or compost every year
50-55 tonnes of podes/ha (220 pods/tree/year).
