The Effect of Moringa Leaf Juice on Sorghum Yield Production, in Case of Sirinka , North Wollo,Ethiopia

Andualem Ayalew


A Study was conducted in Sirinka to investigate the effect of Moringa juice to increase Sorghum yield. The trial was laid in a Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD) and four times replicated. The treatments were used for three frequency of foliar application. Moringa juice (25ml) application on combined years on sorghum as a yield advantage is recommended to increases Sorghum yield   from 5.5 -37.8% over 50ml and control. Based on the input and out price incurred during the experiment, the marginal rate of return for Moringa leaf juice of 25ml and 50 ml on Sorghum in combined years against the control was 775.05% and 213.3%.This implies that for one birr additional cost on the use of 25ml and 50ml application of. Moringa leaf juice preparation and spraying   on sorghum can help to obtain an additional birr of 7.75 and 2.13.Based on the results, Moringa extract on germination problems of seeds and other crops  can be tested for  food self sufficiency and sustainable use of the forest resources are suggested.
