In the market vegetable retailers are selling each drumstic at Rs.5/- commonly and at scarce time ( summer) Rs.10/- also. Hence drumstick cultivation is profitable even leaf powder is marketed even 50 grams in the market is sold at Rs,100/-
Please contact us for further details and for project reports.

Hi, 9 ton drumstick production, what about leaves production, moringa profits lives in its leaves?The expected yield will be up 9 tons per acre , if each kg is Rs. 10.00 to 15.00 , expected income will be Rs.90000 to 135000 per acre , deduct cost of cultivation approximately Rs.30000 to 35000/- , the expected income will be Rs.60000 to Rs.100000/- per acre only
Can you please share your contact details to further discussIf you are going for leaf production the spacing has to be reduced, do not allow for bearing , the economics of leaf production different, please contact us for further clarification
I am planning Moringa(Drumsticks) on my farm. We have red loamy soil on a dry land belt. 4inch water is available from 2 borewells. We will opt for drip irrigation.
From the information i have, one can get 20tonnes yield per acre in one year. Current mandi rate for drumsticks is 35 rs/kg (say 30rs)
So, one can expect gross receipts of 30rsX20000kg=6lacs per acre per annum.
The cost involved is Land development + seeds/samplings.
Is this information correct??
Am i missing something??
Expecting advice from people already into moringa cultivation.
thanks in advance,
Hello, Good to know you have moringa, please share your contact details we can integrate our harvest and supply to our client. We are also based in New Panvel, Raigad Dist. and have around 7acres of morning cultivation.My Experience for Drumstick growers
I am cultivating Drumsticks in my farm on around 3 acres of area. My farm is located in Raigad District of Maharashtra. When started, I was quite new to farming. I ventured into agriculture on the basis of information gathered on net and visiting exhibitions and meeting drumstick farmers in Maharashtra.
I decided to plant drumstick on the basis of soil type, water availability. The 30-40 days old saplings were sourced from a reliable farmer who is into drumstick cultivation for many years. But the decision to plant the trees in Monsoon proved to be a mistek as the heavy rains in monsoon ruined the plantation. The plants were very delicate and could not withstand the heavy rains. The whole lot of 1200 plants were lost and had to be replanted in october. Now the plants are 9 months old started bearing pods. On the advice of the experts, I have done the pruning of the trees for better growth.
Now waiting for the first season of harvesting. Even I am wondering about the output in the first season... Expecting around 10-15 kg. of pods per plant. I have learnt that one plant gives 30-35 kg. output per season. Hope to have this result very soon. The rate expected is around Rs. 20-25 Kg. If I sale the produce in the farm itself. Exploring the different possibilities of Marketing for Better rates.
I am sharing my experience for the new farmers/growers and also to receive quality suggestions for better performance in yield and rates. All the best...
