Karanja is a medium sized tree and is normally planted along the highways, roads and canals to stop soil erosion. It is one of the few nitrogen fixing trees to produce seeds containing 30-32% oil. Pongamia grows into a large tree with a 10-metre taproot, creating a huge carbon sinkIt is often planted as an ornamental and shade tree.

It is well-adapted to arid zones and has many traditional uses. It is often used for landscaping purposes as a windbreak or for shade due to the large canopy and showy fragrant flowers.

Planting & Care
The Pongam tree exhibits an odd growth pattern compared to many other trees. Generally, new leaf is produced from May to the end of August and are not lost until April of the following year. Fruit production occurs throughout December; then, in February its seeds begin to ripen and will do so through May. In March, the pods join the seeds in the ripening process and will finish ripening at the end of May. The Pongam tree flowers from April until the end of June.

Sunlight: Full Sun

Fertilizer: If the soil is not fertile or if it is sandy, larger quantity of cow dung and other fertilizers are required. If minerals are present in soil, minerals that neutralize these should be mixed with soil in the pit. Gypsum, quartz or sulfates are used as additives.
