Neem has phenomenal Integrated Pest Management (IPM) properties, which occurs through its production of molecules such as Azadirachtin, Salannin and Nimbin, which act as an antifeedant for over 200 species of insects.
How do I use Neem powder?
Neem powder is commonly top-dressed, mixed into a soil mix or brewed in a tea. For maximum IPM properties we recommend having Neem powder both in your soil and as part of a topdressing.
In order to tackle a bug problem, we recommend using a 2cm layer of Neem powder topdressing.
