Boards of Moringa in Bala

At the Bala seed farm, a different agroforestry technique has been introduced. Until then, fertiliser trees had criss-crossed the land. On this new plot, the corridor cultivation technique was used. The moringa plants are planted in a tight row, and maintained as shrubs. Regular pruning will allow them to fill out at the base and harvest leaves used to garnish dishes, which are particularly rich in nutrients. These hedges will protect crops from the wind and provide shade.
