We manufacture Neem cake, Neem cake dust, Neem cake pellet, Neem based fertilizer, Neem based manure, Neem Kernel dust, Neem Kernel Pellet, Neem cake suppliers, Neem products, Azadirachta indica, Neem extract etc.
Neem cake is an organic by product of Neem seed oil production. It is widely used as organic fertilizer, biological pest control agent and as NCU (Neem Coated Urea) to inhibit Nitrification. Pests don’t have to be killed instantly if their populations can be incapacitated in a way that is harmless to people and the planet as a whole. Saosis Neem is available as Neem cake dust, Neem cake powder and as Neem cake pellet.
Introduction to Neem cake & Neem cake pellet
Neem (Which is available in dust / powder and pellet form) protect all plants from the multitude of pests with a multitude of pesticidal ingredients. Neem’s main ingredient broadside is a mixture of 3 or 4 related compounds, and it is backed up with 20 or so other natural evolved Neem compounds that are minor but nonetheless active in one way or another.
In the main, these natural compounds belong to a general class of natural products called Triterpenes more specifically Limonoids which is present in Saosis Neem cake. The growing accumulation of our experience demonstrate that Neem work by intervening at several stages of an insect’s life. At first, once Saosis Neem cake is consumed by an insect, Neem cake then alters the shape and structure of hormones present in the insect and that are vital to the lives of insect (not to mention, including many invertebrates and even some microbes).
The body of these insects then absorb the Neem cake as if they were the real hormones, but this only blocks their endocrine systems resulting deep-seated behavioral and physiological aberrations that leaves the insects so confused in brain and body that they cannot reproduce and their populations plummet. Increasingly, such results of Saosis Neem cake are seen as desirable methods of pest control. Pests don’t have to be killed instantly if their populations can be incapacitated in a way that is harmless to people and the planet as a whole.

What makes our Neem cake different from their Neem cake?
Presense of the following unique compounts in higher percentage makes Saosis Neem different from other Neem. LIMONOIDS: So far, at least nine, Saosis Neem cake limonoids have demonstrated an ability to block insect growth, affecting a range of species that includes some of the most deadly pests of agriculture and human health. New limonoids are still being discovered in saosis neem cake, but Azadirachtin, Salannin, Meliantriol, and Nimbin are the best known and, for now at least, seem to be the most significant.
AZADIRACHTIN: One of the most active ingredient isolated from Saosis Neem cake is Azadirachtin. Azadirachtin has been proved to be the tree’s main agent for battling insects. Azadirachtin appears to cause around 90 percent of the pesticidal effect on most pests. It does not kill insects instantly, instead it repels and disrupts their growth & reproduction. Research over the past 20 years has shown that it is one of the most potential growth regulator and feeding deterrents ever assayed. It repels or reduce the feeding habit of many species of pest and insect, as well as some nematodes. In fact, it is so potent that a mere trace of its presence prevents some insects from even touching plants.
MELIANTRIOL: Another feeding inhibitor, meliantriol is found in extremely low concentrations in soasis neem cake [pellet or powder / dust ], to cause insects to cease eating. The demonstration of its ability to prevent locusts chewing on crops was the first scientific proof for saosis neem’s traditional use for insect control on India’s crops.
SALANNIN: Yet a third triterpenoid isolated from saosis neem cake is salannin. Studies indicate that this compound also powerfully inhibits feeding, but does not influence insect molts. The migratory locust, California red scale, striped cucumber beetle, houseflies, and the Japanese beetle have been strongly deterred in both laboratory and field tests.
NIMBIN and NIMBIDIN: Two more saosis neem cake pellet components, nimbin and nimbidin, have been found to have antiviral activity. They affect potato virus X, vaccinia virus, and fowl pox virus. They could perhaps open a way to control these and other viral diseases of crops and livestock. Nimbidin is the primary component of the bitter principles obtained when neem seeds are extracted with alcohol. It occurs in sizable quantities about 2 percent of the kernel.
OTHERS: Certain minor ingredients also work as antihormones. Our in house research has shown that some of these minor saosis neem pellet and saosis neem powder chemicals even paralyze the Swallowing Mechanism and so prevent insects from eating. Examples of these newly found limonoids from neem include deacetylazadirachtinol. This ingredient, isolated from fresh fruits, appears to be as effective as azadirachtin in assays against the tobacco budworm, but it has not yet been widely tested in field practice.
Effects of Neem cake on plant viruses?
Plant viruses pose some of the most severe threats to agriculture. Because they invade the crop’s cells and cloak themselves with the plant’s normal life processes, they are far more difficult to control than free-living organisms such as bacteria, protozoa, or fungi. At present, Saosis Neem cake can only try to halt their spread, something which is nearly impossible to achieve under even the best of circumstances because viruses hitch rides in insects such as aphids, as well as on dirty tools, blowing dust, or spreading floodwaters.
This conclusion is drawn from several successful tests on Saosis Neem cake effects against insect vectors of plant viruses. These tests include the following: · A trial in the Philippines (Conducted by unknown agencies) where rice fields sprayed with Saosis Neem cake pellet and Saosis neem cake dust had significantly lower incidence of the ragged-stunt virus, which affects rice and is transmitted by the brown planthopper; · A second trial in the Philippines (Conducted by unknown agencies) where mixtures of saosis neem pellet and custard-apple oil interfered with the transmission of tungro virus, another rice pest; ·
Experiments in West Bengal, India where Saosis Neem-leaf extracts reduced the transmission of tobacco mosaic, a virus that seriously affects several vegetable crops; · Field trials in the Philippines (Conducted by unknown agencies) where fields treated with urea and saosis neem cake were found to be lower in viral diseases than those treated with urea alone. · Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays showing that rice seedlings grown in soil treated with neem cake were significantly freer of rice tungro viruses (transmitted by green rice leafhopper) than those in untreated control plots.
Effects of saosis Neem cake on plant insects?
The precise effects of the Neem on a given insect species are often difficult to pinpoint. Neem’s complexity of ingredients and its mixed modes of action vastly complicate clarification. Moreover, field tests that have been conducted to date are hard to compare because each time different test insects, dosages, and formulations where used. Further, the materials used in various tests have often been handled and stored differently, or produced under different environmental conditions. But, for all the uncertainty over details, Neem extracts are known to act on various insects in the following ways: – Disrupting or inhibiting the development of eggs, larvae, or pupae;
- – Blocking the molting of larvae or nymphs;
- – Disrupting mating and sexual communication;
- – Repelling larvae and adults;
- – Deterring females from laying eggs;
- – Sterilizing adults;
- – Poisoning larvae and adults;
- – Deterring feeding;
- – Blocking the ability to swallow that is, reducing the motility of the gut;
- – Sending metamorphosis awry at various stages; and
- – Inhibiting the formation of chitin. Chitin is the material comprising the insect exoskeleton. Stopping the formation of a new skin, for the next stage in its development is one way that azadirachtin acts to regulate the growth of an insect.
