Years of Experience

Our engagement strategy with outgrowers!

We pride ourselves in the sustainable management of smallholders through an innovative supply chain model dubbed the Cluster Outgrowers Management Model (COMM).

A COMM consists of the following:

Cluster Manager & Farmer Delegates

in charge of 30 clusters each with at least 100 acres under Moringa production.

Cluster Assistant Manager & a Farmer Committee

in charge of 3 clusters (at least 300 acres) under Moringa Production






Dedicated Staff

Benefits of a Cluster Model


Quality Control

Ensuring consistent and high-quality moringa products can be challenging in a farming cluster. Variations in cultivation practices, harvesting methods, and processing techniques among different farmers can lead to inconsistencies in the quality of moringa leaves, seeds, and other products.


Pest and Disease Management

Moringa trees are susceptible to pests and diseases. In a farming cluster, the spread of pests and diseases can be rapid due to the proximity of cultivation areas. Implementing effective pest and disease management strategies and promoting awareness among farmers about preventive measures are crucial.


Market Access & Price Fluctuations

Farmers in moringa clusters may face challenges in accessing markets, especially if there is limited infrastructure for transportation and storage. Additionally, fluctuations in market prices for moringa products can affect the income of farmers, making it essential to explore market diversification and value addition strategies.


Training and Capacity Building

Some farmers in moringa clusters may lack sufficient knowledge about best practices in cultivation, harvesting, and processing. Providing continuous training and capacity-building programs can address this challenge and enhance the overall productivity and sustainability of moringa farming.


Post-Harvest Losses

Inadequate post-harvest infrastructure and practices can lead to significant losses of moringa products. Establishing proper storage facilities, transportation networks, and processing units within the cluster can help reduce post-harvest losses.


Water Management

Moringa is known for its drought resistance, but water availability is still critical for optimal growth. In areas where water scarcity is an issue, proper water management practices, such as rainwater harvesting and efficient irrigation, need to be implemented to sustain moringa cultivation.


Environmental Sustainability

Large-scale moringa cultivation can have environmental implications, such as changes in land use patterns and potential impacts on local ecosystems. It's important for moringa farming clusters to adopt sustainable agricultural practices and consider the environmental impact of their activities.


Access to Finance

Farmers in moringa clusters may face challenges in accessing financial resources for investment in quality seeds, equipment, and infrastructure. Establishing partnerships with financial institutions or government agencies can help address this challenge.


Regulatory Compliance

Compliance with agricultural regulations, quality standards, and certifications can be demanding for farmers in moringa clusters. Ensuring that farmers are aware of and adhere to these regulations is crucial for market acceptance and sustainability.


Social and Cultural Factors

Social and cultural factors within the farming community can influence the success of moringa farming clusters. Issues related to community dynamics, gender roles, and traditional farming practices may need to be considered and addressed for the smooth functioning of the cluster.
