Azadirachtin Technical the most potent tetranortriterpenoid isolated till date from Neem Seeds. It, together with other limonoids present in neem seeds has proven to be very effective against more than 300 insect species as antifeedant, repellent and as an insect growth regulator at the same time not affecting the life cycles of beneficial insects like honey bees, spiders and butterflies. Azadirachtin is perhaps the only substance presently available which does not build resistance in insects.
Azadirachtin limonoid profile has proven to be superior in trials conducted in the USA. Selanin a powerful repellant and Nimbin, whose photo-degradation properties have been established as having IGR effect. Azadirachtin provides a broad-spectrum pest control for fruits, vegetables and plantation crops, greenhouses, turf,outdoor ornamentals and agricultural crops such as sugarcane, paddy, cotton and tea.
Azadirachtin based pesticides are versatile; easily biodegradable, leaving no toxic residues and thereby keeping the environment clean and safe.
Azadirachtin Technical contains Azadirachtin Technical, the key component of Neem based Pesticides / Insecticides.It is a yellowish powder extracted from the Neem Seed Kernels and is used for preparing end products (Neem Insecticides) for the management of agriculturally important pests, after
extracting neem oil.
It is stable at cool temperature in the absence of water & light. It is found to be stable in
organic solvents for at least twelve months under ambient conditions.
It acts as a broad spectrum bio pesticide controlling more than 300 species of insect/ pests including caterpillars, beetles, whiteflies, leafhoppers, aphids, mites, thrips, borer, leaf folders and many more.
Mode of Action
In insects, it exhibits various behavioral responses such as Antifeedant. Feeding Deterrent, Oviposition Deterrent etc., and physiological responses such as Insect Growth Regulator, Molting Inhibitor, Reproduction Inhibitor, Antifertility etc.
It is non-toxic to Rats, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs. It has no significant effect on Birds. It is non -toxic at recommended rates to Aquatic Organisms. Also it is relatively harmless to non-target and beneficial organisms.
Treat symptomatically. Wash contaminated skin & clothes. If swallowed contact the physician.
