The reports I read stated that Morenga trees on a monthly dosage of 1/2 lb of 15-5-15 per tree yielded dry leaves with 1.5% potash content. To obtain net 1.5 lb of potash from such leaves, you would need (1.5 lb potash) / (0.015) = 100 lbs of dried Morenga leaves.

10 million banana bucks and counting.
