Moringa oleifera is the most nutritious tree that has ever been found. Almost all parts of the plant can be used as an eco-friendly nutrient supplement and natural biopesticide to improve crop growth and yields. Based in this fact this review article aims to focus on the possible role of Moringa oleifera as an alternative source of the environmentally friendly product in organic vegetable production. It is evident that the plant is rich in antioxidants, antibiotics, nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, protein, and carotenoids. Due to the presence of high concentration of different hormones mainly zeatin, it can be used to improve the yield of many types of crops by 10–45 per cent apart from the lowest cost of production. Many research papers demonstrate the benefits of the tree in different aspects like livestock production, medicine, manufacturing, water purification, source of nutrients in poor nations, and food technology.
