The Neem tree of India has been used as a natural insecticide for thousands of years. Neem Granules are an amazing product. This is a natural and organic product that prevents and kills nasty insects in the garden. If used at 4-6 weekly intervals you will very rarely need to use any other sprays. Good for all soils, all crops and all seasons. It works primarily by increasing the humus content of the soil. It is an all purpose organic soil conditioner, ideal for low organic matter soils.
Native Neem organic certified tree granules are the residue left from the first extraction process, after the seeds kernels are crushed to extract the oil.
These granules are known as the ‘King’ among other organic fertilisers due to their high Azadirachtin content and high NPK value.
Our research proves that the following nematodes are controlled by neem cake: Arenaria, Haplolaimus Indicus, Helicotylenchus Erythrina, Pratylenchus sp., Meloidogyne Incognita, M.Javanica (root knot nematode found in vegetable crops like okra, chilli, French beans, tomato, black gram, green gram, egg plant etc) Parasitic Fungi, R.Brassica, Reniform Nematode, Root-knot Nematodes, Rotylenchulus Reniformis (found on okra, French and garden beans), Radopholus similis (banana) Trylenchor hynchus - various species, etc.
Other Pests: Grain Moth, Lesser Grain Moth, Red Flour Beetle.
Neem cake/granules are harder to find, but are a highly bio-available fertiliser, exceptionally effective at controlling garden pests. They may also assist in repelling mammals such as deer, rabbits and squirrels.
The neem granules should be added to the soil at planting time. Alternatively, it should be applied to the ground surface well before insects that attack you plants are about. Presently, Grass Grub, Porina and Bronze Beetle are all problems that can be controlled with Neem. If you are having problems with your tomatoes and potatoes, Neem is particularly efficacious and the best natural safeguard against the potato/tomato psyllid.
Stops progression from eggs to grubs
Stops grubs becoming flying insects
Reduces insect attack
Controls grass grub
Controls root nematodes
Controls mealy bugs
Controls tomato/potato psyllid
Controls white butterfly attack
Protects Container plants
Unlike chemicals, insects do not become ‘super’ insects that develop resistance
Field Studies have shown that Native Neem Neem Tree Granules dosed at 250 kilogram per hectare has the efficacy of commercial neem cake at a dosage of 1000 kilograms per hectare
Totally prevents hatching and acts as an insecticide on eggs in the soil
Enriches the soil with natural nutrients
The chlorophyll content increases daily
Totally organic matter, no harm to soil, water or the environment and induces
the growth of beneficial soil flora and fauna
Increases the nutrients and microorganisms of the soil and develops as totally organic matter as follows:
Induces the nitrification process
The decomposition of Native Neem neem cake releases fatty acids, aldehydes, ketones, amino acids, carbohydrates and frees sulphur, which forms the
precursor materials for plant growth and metabolism
Once decomposed, many of the released compounds hinder the growth of pathogenic fungus
The taste, odor and organic composition retards, repels / inhibits the growth and development of plant parasitic nematodes
Root galling can be controlled
New Plants: Apply a handful of granules to the planting hole at a depth of 15-20cm, mix into the soil, then sprinkle another handful of granules on top of
the soil around the plants
Established Plants: 50 -80 grams per square metre, lightly raked around the plants
Grass Grub Treatment: Sprinkle the granules over the recently mowed lawn at the rate of 50 grams per square metre and water to settle to the soil. Best times for treating is around December as the females are laying their eggs and the grubs are hatching. Also about April/May/June/July depending on where you are in NZ.
Very effective around shrubs and tall trees where spraying is difficult
Store at room temperature in dry and dark conditions
Harmless to earthworms.
Apply every 4 - 6 weeks to maintain plant health
Free from: Pesticide Residue, Minerals, Salmonella, E-Coli and Aflatoxin
