Neem is amazing because it has universal benefits and is non-toxic for humans, plants and benefical insects.

Mode of Action:

1. Neem Cake is active in increasing the growth, leafage, results in rich
blossoming,strengthening the roots and improving the general appearance
of fruits & vegetables.

2. While applied in conjuction with any Nitrogenous fertilisers, slows the
conversion of Nitrogenous compounds into Nitrogen gas , thus making
Nitrogen available to the plants for a longer duration.

3. It prevents and treats ailment disorders of plants due to lack or imbalance
of Nutritious and trace elements.

4. It accelerates root development and overall plant growth and protects the
plant from Nematodes and white ants.

5. It is a totally organic plant food which increases productivity and soil fertility.

6. It has antifungal properties and highly suitable for application in Greenhouses.

METHOD OF APPLICATION:

Neem cake mixed with soil on and around the roots of the plants, Vegetables,
bushes and trees, will have a remarkable result in the improvement of the
plant immunity.

Neem Cake can be applied safely in all cultures, fruit-bearing, garden
products, Melon, cotton, tobacco, Vineyard and Flowers.

EFFECT OF NEEM CAKE APPLIED TO VARIOUS CROPS:

ORANGE: Controlling Citrus Nematodes.
TOMATO: Controlling Tomato Seedling Nematodes.
TOBACCO: Controlling RootKnot Nematodes.
RICE(with Urea): Increasing N Uptake, slow release of Fertiliser
Urea.Regulating rate of Nitrification of Urea.

TYPICAL ANALYSIS :

NITROGEN (N) : 2.0 - 2.5 %
PHOSPHORUS (P) : 0.6 - 1.4 %
POTASSIUM (K) : 1.2 - 1.6 %

DOSAGE:

50-80 gms. Spread in soil per square metre is suggested.

Hi GPI, Neem is a tree that is native of Burma and India, it's now grown in various other warm climates including parts of Africa and Florida. However I get my neem from India. Neem is a relative of the Oak tree and grows to a similar size.

The tree is intolerant to frost and over watering. Until recently I had some growing in pots indoors but sadly they did not survive. I am hoping to get some more seeds and start again.

I formulate skin care products with the oil and the leaf, I also take the neem leaf in capsule form from time to time.

I edited my post earlier because I read the forum rules and realised that I might be breaching rules, sorry about that.

All parts of the tree are used for various applications. Neem has been used in India for over 5,000 years medicinally for animals and humans and for agricultural purposes.

I will post more at a later stage if you are interested, otherwise all you have to do is search for "Neem" on google.com and all the information you need can be found there, including my own.

Kathy
