The objective of this study was to assess the growth and the biomass produced of Moringa oleifera plants. For the study, a total of 10 plants divided to 5 plants were cultivated on two separate sites. During 50 days follow-up of the plants, the growth and biomass produced have been assessed. The results showed that the mean height of the plants were 44.2 centimeters and 36.9 centimeters respectively for the plants of site1 and site 2. For the biomass produced for all the plants, the results showed 67.7% and 64.3% respectively for the rate of total biomass and the rate of biomass consumable. The plants of Moringa oleifera had a fast growth and high production in biomass.
