Moringa leaves can be produced intensively in a family-sized small garden with seeds spaced as closely as 10 cm apart. When the plants reach a height of a meter. They can be cut down to a height of 30 cm. The moringa leaves can be stripped from the stems and used fresh or made into powder, while the stems can be fed to livestock.
