Agriculture Uses of Neem
Neem is recognized today as a natural product which has much to offer in solving global agricultural, environmental and public health problems. It is considered as a valuable instrument for sustainable development. Researchers worldwide are now focusing on the importance of neem in the agricultural industry. The magical tree and hundreds of its active compounds are used to manufacture a number of products. Natural properties of Neem do not have any toxic reactions, so they are helpful in plant protection and management. Neem seeds, neem leaves and leaf extracts are widely used in agriculture. Products derived from Neem tree act as powerful Insect Growth Regulators (IGR) and also help in controlling several nematodes and fungi. Neem products reduce insect’s growth in crops and plants.

It is evident that the traditional Indian practices were very sound and are still in use. Today with advanced technologies, a wide range of products are produced as mentioned above, suitable to be used in organic agriculture. Incorporating latest scientific and technical developments, Neem products are suited to agricultural growth. Extensive toxicological studies have been carried out on Neem products and have been finally cleared for use in horticulture.
