Off Season Production of Moringa

In India it is Morigna grown all over the subcontinent for its tender pods and also for its leaves and flowers. The pod of moringa is a very popular vegetable in South Indian cuisine and valued for their distinctly inviting flavour. The pods are available in a very meager number during November to February owing to the season which coincides with heavy rainfall, low temperature which leads to the flowers drop leading to poor pod set which is considered to be the off-season period of the year. By adopting suitable horticultural practices, increased pod set percentage, number of pods per panicle, total number of pods per tree, pod weight and yield per tree and yield under off season conditions fetching higher returns to the farmers.
