Potential of Moringa oleifera as nutrient–agent for biofertilizer production

Title variants
Languages of publication
The results of this research reveal Moringa oleifera to be an effective nutrient-agent for biofertilizer production. Herein, plant analysis data indicate Moringa to be a good nutrient carrier of elements that can enhance effective and productive cultivation of crops, while in-turn maintaining soil fertility status.
