Horticulture Graduate Seminar: Cold Tolerance in Moringa oleifera Lam.

Speaker: Tassia Santos Neri Soares, Visiting Graduate Student, Department of Horticulture, Iowa State University

Moringa oleifera Lam. is a fast-growing tree, recognized for its multiple uses, especially for human and animal consumption due to the high nutritional value of its leaves and in the cosmetic industry. Native from India and spread worldwide, moringa is typically adapted to tropical and subtropical regions, and considered sensitive to cold temperatures. This study is undertaken to systematically evaluate the cold tolerance of this species under precisely controlled low-temperature regimes and durations using certain physiological parameters.
