    Drumstick (Moringa oleifera) tree is a boon for tropical and subtropical regions as it can survive in drought conditions with minimum water

    requirement. The crop is mainly grown in dry and arid

    climatic conditions. Ideal temperature for commercial o o

    cultivation of drumstick is between 25 C and 32 C. Soil

    pH of 6.2 to 7.0 gives quality crop. Conventionally the

    plant are propagated through seed, Institute of

    Horticulture Technology (IHT) has now standardize

    clonal propagation of drumsticks and superior plants

    can now be regenerated vegetatively on commercial

    scale through root trainers. IHT has also standardized

    its pruning techniques for better canopy management.

    This has led to the commercial cultivation of drumstick

    in urban-peri urban areas and also for export. The yield

    of local seedling plants cultivar varies from 30-32 q/ha

    fetching price between Rs 400-600 per q but with the

    introduction of high yielding clones a well-managed

    crop can yield 60-70 tonnes of pods per hectare (250

    pods per tree per year).
