Neem cake, a byproduct obtained from the de-oiled residue of neem kernels. These kernels are good organic manure for agriculture which protects the plants and crops from fungus and pests. Nitrogen, potassium and phosphorous are the nutrients available in the kernels which constitute high-level Azadirachtin which helps the crops against parasitic nematodes.
Neem cakes serve as the best soil conditioner and used in agriculture, horticulture, floriculture and turf industry as an organic fertilizer as well as a natural nematicide. Neem cake composes various micro and macronutrients which makes it an organic fertilizer to control soil based on pathogens and nematodes at the same time.
Neem cakes also control grain moth, lessor grain moth, and red flour beetle and help in the production of earthworms by blocking the soil’s bacteria. The conducive method to make the soil fertile because of its voluminous advantages makes it the first choice for the farmers. Additionally, for reduction of nitrification, the neem cakes are used with urea and other fertilizers which contain nitrogen in them to increase the efficiency.
