The area under cultivation to produce
the annual seed requirement depends
on the size of the treatment works and
raw water quality (as noted in Table 1).
Assuming the average seed kernel
yield for a mature tree is 3kg, then at
an average seed dose of 100mg/l the
harvest from a single tree will treat
30 000 litres of water. Using the same
assumptions and a recommended tree
spacing of 3m, the harvest from 1ha of
mature trees (approx. 3000kg) would
treat 30 000m3 of water. This equates
to a small treat-ment works producing
10m3 per hour if operated eight hours a
day for a full year.
