Scientific Name: Millettia pinnata (L.) Panigrahi

Family Name: Fabaceae 


Millettia pinnata seeds have a high oil content, and the oil that is extracted from them can be used as biofuel, making it a viable option for the production of sustainable energy.

The leaves, roots, and bark of the tree have all been traditionally employed in folk medicine; they are thought to have therapeutic qualities and are used to treat skin illnesses, rheumatism, and digestive problems.

Millettia pinnata is useful for agroforestry and intercropping because it has nitrogen-fixing characteristics, which means that it can increase soil fertility by fixing atmospheric nitrogen with the aid of symbiotic bacteria.

Because of its wide canopy, the tree offers a lot of shade, which makes it a good choice for planting in cities and beside roadsides.
