ABSTRACT
Moringa oleifera, commonly called the horseradish tree, drumstick tree, ben oil tree, miracle tree, and Mother’s Best Friend, known for its multi-purpose attributes, wide adaptability, and ease of establishment. Its leaves, pods and flowers   packed with nutrients important to both humans and animals. Where diets lack in these essential nutrients the Moringa tree makes a major contribution to human health. The overall aim of this study was to gain further knowledge on how to cultivate, Moringa oleifera in nurseries in order to obtain more high quality seedling and higher yields, mainly during the dry season under dry tropical conditions in Sudan.  Three pre-treatment techniques soaking in  water for (0.0hrs.12hrs, 18hrs) used  in determination of growth parameters such as height, width, crown and root /shoot ratios, The results indicate that variation in growth and productivity within the species under investigation is significant at the initial three months. Growth of control (0.0 water socking) was faster and better than other two treatments. Therefor seed of moringa do not need treatment.
