Neem Seed Meal (6-1-2) is produced during the extraction of oil from the seed of the Indian Neem Tree (Azadirachta indica). It is excellent for strengthening root systems and balancing nutrient levels in the soil. Neem Seed Meal can be mixed into soil or potting mediums, used as a top dress or steeped to make a potent foliar tea. OMRI listed.

  1. Nutrient Source: Neem meal is a good source of essential nutrients, including nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, which are vital for plant growth. It also contains other micronutrients like calcium, magnesium, and sulfur.

  2. Slow-Release Nitrogen: Neem meal releases nitrogen slowly into the soil, providing a steady and prolonged source of this essential nutrient. This helps prevent nutrient leaching and ensures that plants have a consistent supply of nitrogen over time.

  3. Natural Pest Control: Neem meal contains natural compounds called azadirachtin and other limonoids, which have insecticidal properties. When incorporated into the soil, neem meal can help deter and control various soil-dwelling pests and nematodes, reducing the risk of damage to plant roots.

  4. Nematode Control: Neem meal is particularly effective at reducing nematode populations in the soil. Nematodes are microscopic roundworms that can damage plant roots, leading to stunted growth and poor plant health. The compounds in neem meal disrupt nematode life cycles and can reduce their numbers.

  5. Improves Soil Structure: Neem meal helps improve soil structure by increasing its water-holding capacity and enhancing aeration. It also encourages beneficial microbial activity in the soil, promoting a healthier soil ecosystem.

  6. Organic Matter: Neem meal is an organic material that contributes to the overall organic matter content of the soil. This organic matter improves soil fertility and enhances its ability to retain nutrients.

  7. Disease Suppression: Neem meal has been found to have antifungal properties and can help suppress soil-borne plant diseases like root rot and damping-off.
