It also acts as a natural fertilizer with pesticidal properties. Neem cake is widely used in India to fertilize paddy, cotton and sugarcane. Usage of neem cake have shown an increase in the dry matter in Tectona grandis (Teak), Acacia nilotica (Gum Arabic), and other forest trees.\u003cbr\u003eNeem seed cake also reduce alkalinity in soil, as it produces organic acids on decomposition. Being totally natural, it is compatible with soil microbes, improves and rhizosphere microflora and hence ensures fertility of the soil. Neem Cake improves the organic matter content of the soil, helping improve soil texture, water holding capacity, and soil aeration for better root development\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003ePest control\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003eNeem cake is effective in the management of insects and pests. The bitter principles of the soil and cake have been reported to have seven types of activities (a) antifeedant (b) attractant (c) repellent (d) insecticide (e) nematicide (f) growth disruptor and (g) antimicrobial.\u003cbr\u003eThe cake contains salannin, nimbin, azadirachtin and azadiradione as the major components. Of these, azadirachtin and meliantriol are used as locust antifeedants while salannin is used as an antifeedant for the housefly.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cb\u003eComponents\u003c\/b\u003e\u003cbr\u003eNeem Cake has an adequate quantity of NPK in organic form for plant growth. Being a totally botanical product it contains 100% natural NPK content and other essential micro nutrients as N(Nitrogen 2.0% to 5.0%), P(Phosphorus 0.5% to 1.0%), K(Potassium 1.0% to 2.0%), Ca(Calcium 0.5% to 3.0%), Mg(Magnesium 0.3% to 1.0%), S(Sulphur 0.2% to 3.0%), Zn(Zinc 15 ppm to 60 ppm), Cu(Copper 4 ppm to 20 ppm), Fe (Iron 500 ppm to 1200 ppm), Mn (Manganese 20 ppm to 60 ppm). It is rich in both sulphur compounds and bitter limonoids.\u003cbr\u003eAccording to research calculations, neem cake seems to make soil more fertile due to an ingredient that blocks soil bacteria from converting nitrogenous compounds into nitrogen gas. It is a nitrification inhibitor and prolongs the availability of nitrogen to both short duration and long duration crops....\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2018-03-28T18:19:47+05:30","created_at":"2018-03-28T18:22:33+05:30","vendor":"SK Organic Farms","type":"","tags":["new-arrivals"],"price":2000,"price_min":2000,"price_max":9000,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":7083911512098,"title":"Kernal cake \/ 1000 gm","option1":"Kernal cake","option2":"1000 gm","option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":{"id":14872503124002,"product_id":563253051426,"position":1,"created_at":"2020-07-17T18:14:20+05:30","updated_at":"2020-08-02T09:19:45+05:30","alt":"Neem Cake -
