The plant Moringa oleifera Lam. commonly called drum stick plant or horse radish plant or miracle plant or mother’s best friend is the most widely cultivated species of the monogeneric family Moringaceae (order Brassicales), which includes 13 species of trees and shrubs distributed in sub-Himalayan ranges of India, Sri Lanka, north-eastern and south–western Africa, Madagascar and Arabia . M. oleifera is one of the most useful tropical trees. The relative ease with which it propagates through both sexual and asexual means and its low demand for soil nutrients and water after being planted makes its production and management easy. Introduction of M. oleifera into a farm which has a biodiverse environment can be beneficial for both the owner of the farm and the surrounding ecosystem .
