Today we will be talking extensively on the plant called MORINGA and how you can also make money from it. First of all, I want you to know that there is money in Moringa seeds business only if you know how to do it… You can make good money from the sale of Moringa seedlings, Moringa oil, Moringa tea, Moringa capsules, Moringa powder, etc.
Moringa oleifera is known everywhere for it’s medicinal uses. It is regarded as the tree of life. The medicinal benefit of this tree makes it superior to other trees. Both the seeds and leaves are useful. The seeds and leaves are money!
And sincerely speaking, Moringa farming business is not like annual crops farming such as Maize, Rice, Beans etc.
Moringa products are comparatively costly and it takes comparatively little INVESTMENT to set up a moringa farm. A bag of moringa seeds costs N150, 000. A rubber of Moringa seeds cost N2,500. During off season, Moringa seeds could cost as high as N10, 000 per kilogram (about 3500 to 4000 seeds).
Also, Moringa oil costs averagely N17, 000 per litre. There is so much demand for Moringa products in Nigeria than the available supply. Do you also know that a bottle of COLD PRESSED Moringa oil (75ml) costs N 3500? So can you imagine how much you could make selling JUST MORINGA OIL in a year?
It takes only 150 days to a maximum of one year for your Moringa trees to start producing seeds.
Moringa flowers, seeds, bark, roots, leaves, trunk, etc are all extremely medicinal and in high demand. Moringa leaves and other parts are useful as medicine for treatment of several body ailments.
What does it really take to cultivate an acre of Moringa?
The number one bridge to cross is for you to get land. Well, if your family has large acres of land, then I think half of your problem is solved. If your family does not have land, then you need to make provision to purchase one. You can also lease a land. However, outright purchase is the better option.
The second hurdle is “How to obtain seedlings”. Do you even know that the seedlings are in hot demand currently?
Averagely, one costs about N500, depending on the height. For an acre, you need about 400 seedlings. So in cultivating 10 acres, you will spend about N 186, 000.00 on seedlings. We strongly advise that you raise your own seedlings yourself or better still, sow seeds directly on the farm land.
Land clearing, preparation and maintenance are next and most important after satisfying the two points mentioned above.
