Moringa yields best under warm, dry conditions with some supplemental fertilizer and irrigation. When the plant is grown from cuttings, the first harvest can take place 6—8 months after planting. Often, the fruits are not produced in the first year, and the yield is generally low during the first few years. By year two, it produces around pods, by year three around — A good tree can yield or more pods. Sometimes, particularly in South India, flowers and fruit appear twice a year, so two harvests occur, in July to September and March to April.
The leaves and stems can be harvested from the young plants 60 days after seeding and then another seven times in the year. The cultivation of M. The moringa tree is not affected by any serious diseases in its native or introduced ranges. In India, several insect pests are seen, including various caterpillars such as the bark-eating caterpillar , the hairy caterpillar or the green leaf caterpillar. The budworms Noctuidae are known to cause serious defoliation.
Damaging agents can also be aphids , stem borers, and fruit flies. In some regions, termites can also cause minor damage. If termites are numerous in soils, insects management costs are not bearable. The moringa tree is a host to Leveillula taurica , a powdery mildew which causes damage in papaya crops in south India.
Cultivation management should therefore be checked. Many parts of moringa are edible,  with regional uses varying widely:. Nutritional content of g of fresh M. The leaves are the most nutritious part of the plant, being a significant source of B vitamins , vitamin C , pro vitamin A as beta-carotene , vitamin K , manganese , and protein , among other essential nutrients.
The leaves are cooked and used like spinach and are commonly dried and crushed into a powder used in soups and sauces. The immature seed pods, called "drumsticks", are commonly consumed in South Asia. They are prepared by parboiling , and cooked in a curry until soft. The seeds, sometimes removed from more mature pods and eaten like peas or roasted like nuts , contain high levels of vitamin C and moderate amounts of B vitamins and dietary minerals.
The refined oil is clear and odorless, and resists rancidity. The seed cake remaining after oil extraction may be used as a fertilizer or as a flocculent to purify water. The roots are shredded and used as a condiment with sharp flavor qualities deriving from significant content of polyphenols. Moringa trees have been used to combat malnutrition, especially among infants and nursing mothers. Moringa has numerous applications in cooking throughout its regional distribution. The fruits or seed pods, known as "drumsticks", are a culinary vegetable commonly used in soups and curries.
The leaves are also commonly eaten with many culinary uses, and the flowers are featured in some recipes as well.

The long drumsticks are often cut into shorter lengths and stewed in curries and soups. Because the outer skin is tough and fibrous, drumsticks are often chewed to extract the juices and nutrients, with the remaining fibrous material discarded. Others describe a slightly different method of sucking out the flesh and tender seeds and discarding the tube of skin. Traditional dishes which commonly include drumsticks prepared this way include South Indian sambar where it is stewed with lentils, and the Thai dish kaeng som which is a sour curry with drumsticks and fish.
The leaves can be used in many ways, perhaps most commonly added to clear broth-based soups, such as the Filipino dishes tinola and utan.
Tender moringa leaves, finely chopped, are used as garnish for vegetable dishes and salads, such as the Kerala dish thoran. It is also used in place of or along with coriander. Despite its reputation in lay press as a " superfood ",  there is no scientific evidence that it provides nutritional benefits beyond those of a healthy diet or has any unique pharmacological effects or anti-disease activities in humans. Dunt-dalun chin-yei , Burmese drumstick sour soup.
Traditional Thai kaeng som with drumstick pods and fresh pla thu. Sabaw sa kalamunggay , a Visayan fish soup from the Philippines with moringa leaves. The bark, sap, roots, leaves, seeds and flowers are used in traditional medicine. Extracts from leaves contain low contents of polyphenols which are under basic research for their potential properties. Various adverse effects may occur from consuming moringa bark, roots, or flowers and their extracts, as these components contain chemicals that appear to be toxic when eaten.
In developing countries, moringa has the potential to improve nutrition, boost food security, foster rural development, and support sustainable landcare. Moringa oleifera leaf powder was as effective as soap for hand washing when wetted in advance to enable anti-septic and detergent properties from phytochemicals in the leaves. Moringa seed cake , obtained as a byproduct of pressing seeds to obtain oil, is used to filter water using flocculation to produce potable water for animal or human consumption.
Moringa seed cake removes most impurities from water. This use is of particular interest for being nontoxic and sustainable compared to other materials in moringa-growing regions where drinking water is affected by pollutants.

Alternative strategies are required to develop the optimized production of fatty acids using biocatalysis; molecular docking and response surface methodology are efficient tools to achieve this goal.
In the present study, we demonstrate a novel and robust methodology for the sustainable production of fatty acids from Moringa oleifera Lam oil using lipase-catalysed hydrolysis without the presence of emulsifiers or buffer solutions. Moringa straw as cellulase production inducer and cellulolytic fungi source. Currently, the valorization of agroindustrial waste is of great interest. Moringa oleifera is a multipurpose tree whose softwood residues could be used as raw material for low-cost cellulase production. The aim of this study was to isolate, identify, and characterize microorganisms with cellulolytic activity in different carbon sources.
We isolated and purified 42 microorganisms from M.
