Moringa extract for crops:
As leaves of moringa are rich source of nutrients and other compounds as mentioned earlier, so morigna leaf extract has a very positive impact on the crops. “Zeatin” is a form of cytokinin which is growth promoter as increases not only germination of crops uptill 25% but also enhances the yield of crop upto 35%.
How to use moringa leaf extract as plant growth enhancer:
As priming agent.
Moringa leaf extract can be used as the priming agent before sowing of seed. For priming,seed is soaked in moringa leaf extract with water ratio of 1:30. For about 8 hours. Proper ventilation must be provided. After over night soaking seed is dried in shade for about 5-6 hours. It will result in rapid and more germination of that crops, proper crop establishment with uniformity in the field.
As foliar application .
Morigna leaf extract can be used as foliar application on the crops in order to get maximum yield. Foliar application can be done on two to three critical stages of crops, depending upon the nature of crop. For example on wheat foliar application can be done on two stages like tillering and heading which will result in more tillering, spike length, health of grain and yield. Another advantage of foliar application is less attack of pest on the crop. During foliar application ratio of leaf extract and water should be kept 1:30.
