Moringa: traditional crop of the month 16 September 2014

Revered by local communities in Africa and Asia for its outstanding health and nutritional values, Moringa oliefera is a star among trees. Since the 1990s FAO has promoted Moringa in participatory agroforestry programmes and more recently as an intercropping species in post-Haiyan recovery in the Philippines and in a collaborative food and nutrition programme in the SNNPR region in Ethiopia.
