The 2015 Global Moringa Meet Pinpoints key Strategies & Standards for Moringa Cultivation & Value Addition to Maximize Project Moringa ROI

July 30, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
July 30, 2015 - Providing the people of the world with a dependable supply of healthy nutritious foods is perhaps the greatest challenge facing humanity. Our current farming methods are clearly failing. They are over-dependent on fossil fuels; they damage soils and deplete scarce water resources; they degrade everyday foods; they reduce biodiversity and squander precious wildlife; they pollute our global environment. We, at Advanced Biofuel Center, the organizers of the 3rd Global Moringa Meet, are convinced that the Earth's natural resources are easily able to provide a good, healthy diet for everyone living on the planet today and everyone likely to be living on it 50 years from now and indeed forever. All it will take is an agriculture based on principles of sound biology rather than economic dogma.

Globally, about 870 million people do not have enough to eat, and more than two billion suffer from micronutrient deficiency, according to United Nations (UN) food agencies. The Moringa tree is increasingly considered as one of the world's most valuable natural resources, as the main constituents of the tree have several nutritive ingredients. Its leaves, pods and flowers are considered good sources of vitamins A, B, B2, B3, B6 and C, folic acid, ascorbic acid, beta-carotene, calcium, iron, and amino acids. More importantly, its leaves are highly nutritious; being a significant source of beta-carotene, vitamin C, protein, iron and potassium Arial. Moringa oleifera is an essential plant in meeting global food security and sustain the livelihoods of many millions of people. Food vs. fuel, for most, comes and goes with price cycles. It is seen as a transitory debate, usually focused on a handful of feedstocks that producers of food or fuel have become overly dependent on. To us, diversity is the solution - and diversification the strategy, and scientists and entrepreneurs must ultimately solve the debate by ending the need for it.

The earlier studies have reported the significance of moringa leaves as a source of vitamin A. These leaves could retain 50% of their β-carotene on shade dehydration and the dehydrated leaves could be easily rehydrated and incorporated into traditional food recipes without altering their acceptability characteristics .Moringa leaves are also rich sources of flavonols such as kaempferol and 3'-OMe quercetin. A flavone, acacetin and a glycoflavone 4-OMe Vitexin was also identified. The phenolic acids identified included melilotic acid, p-coumaric acid, and vanillic acid. The one of most important component of Moringa oleifera leaves is Quercetin, which is used as inhibitor for the growth of cancer cell in human being.

Though India harbors a lot varietal wealth but unfortunately, information on exhaustive research mainly based on conservation, cultivation, improvement and outstanding new varietal production found not only in India but also in elsewhere in world is inadequate. The 3rd moringa meet 2015 emphasizes mainly on the tremendous potential for improvement of the human beings in particular and the society in general, easy cultivation and handsome benefits to initiate more cultivation. Moringa, having a good potential to be cultivated throughout Asia, Africa and Latin America particularly in the dry land area where there is a scarcity of water, it can be grown successfully. In the 3rd Global Moringa meet on 21-22 November 2015, ABC shall have discussion about the moringa cultivation aspect and its different uses and focused on its potential to grow as a remunerative by the small and marginal farmers.

Moringa is an exceptionally nutritious tree with variety of uses. Highly valued by the ancient Roman, Greek and Egyptian civilizations, the Moringa tree is now being"rediscovered in many areas of the globe. A combination of low yielding Moringa varieties, the absence of effective crop management, and high plant mortality during the planting phase, contributes to sub-optimal yields. Moringa investors and crop research institutes are continuously studying modern high-yielding varieties developed by breeding programs, under ideal climatic conditions in Africa, Asia, and America etc. Experts at Advanced Biofuel Center (ABC) are pursuing the unique suitability of all parts of the plant for a wide range of practical purposes ranging from agricultural to medicinal to fuel.

On realizing the potentiality of moringa as a nutritional security provider and the high value energy crop, much importance is attached globally and this is the right time to gear up for research and development activities to reap its fullest potential. In this context this 2 day 3rd Global moringa meet would provide new insight in the potentiality of this crop for future exploitation and formulate strategies for developing moringa failsafe farms and also helps new growers to have holistic information on moringa crop.

This year's programme has more scientists and topics covering all aspects of Moringa Oleifera. The participants shall hear their scientific knowledge, experiences first hand through in-depth experiments and discussion and explore innovative new ideas on how to prove the value of your moringa farms and grow ultimately revenues, at a time of economic downturn.

Plus, the addition of multiple streams guarantees this comprehensive event will offer them educational and practical advice whatever their learning objective.

Key themes to be covered include:
  • Gremplasm, Genomic, Genetic Improvement & Propagation
  • Biology & Physiology
  • Orchard Design & Management
  • Moringa and Oil technology & Quality
  • Economy, Marketing & Health-promoting Properties

  • The farming, looking after and harvesting plants is an important factor and it requires a lot of knowledge, skill and techniques and the top Moringa scientists shall gather to describe and demonstrate Standard Package of Practices to enhance productivity to achieve greater yields with the right crop inputs and management covering key factors like Climate, Quality of the soil, Irrigation, Weeding, Use of fertilizer, Crop density, Genotype, Use of pesticide, Inter-cropping. 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 Plant/oil/biodiesel production

  • Commenting on 2015- Moringa Meet, ABC- the Advanced Biofuel Center CEO Mr. Maharshi said, If you are an investor interested to develop Moring plantations, the Moringa Meet 2015 is an ideal meet for you. Because at this conference, key experts will deliver insight on the technical and scientific aspects of Moringa cultivation! More specifically, you'll hear on high yielding materials and crop improvements by relevant authorities include:
  • Elite Breeding and Genetic Improvement
  • Developments in Moringa Varieties High Yielding Materials
  • Agronomic Specificities and Yield Potential

  • "Of course, the above is only a few of the sessions you'll benefit from at the 2 day workshop. Besides the comprehensive presentations, this event will also serve as an excellent platform to see, touch and experience moringa in person. So ensure you're there at 3rd Global Moringa Meet this November. At the end very busy 2 days you will leave inspired and motivated to effect real change in you're in your business planning and beyond." He further added.
