Where does Neem come from?
Neem comes from the Neem tree which is a tropical evergreen tree. This tree is native to India as well as other southeastern countries on the globe. Now the Neem tree also has many other uses besides just for enhancing soil. The seeds bark and leaves all contain compounds of the Neem tree are proven antiseptics, antivirals, antipyretics, anti-inflammatories, and antifungals in their uses. The Neem tree is thus called “the village pharmacy” in India because of all the ways it’s used. However, Neem does have a garlic-like odor as well as a bitter taste so you aren’t going to find it soon in American restaurants.

Neem seed cake is used as a soil amendment which enriches the soil and lowers nitrogen loss. Plus it works as a nematicide.
The leaves of the Neem tree can be used to treat chicken pox and warts. It is used by applying the leaves in paste form directly to the skin. Neem leaves too are used to make a tea to reduce the fever caused by malaria. And the leaves can be added to hot water to brew a foot soak to treat various foot fungi. It can also be used by adding it to the bath water for a relaxing time in the tub.
The twigs of Neem trees are used in both India and Africa as toothbrushes. You can buy toothpaste with Neem extract commercially too.

As you can see, Neem has many beneficial uses.
What exactly is Neem cake?
Neem cake is the de-oiled residue that can be used after Neem kernels are crushed for their oil. In this seed kernel are nutrients like NPK ((nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) as well as nortriterpenoids and isoprenoids. These nutrients are nematicidal in nature so the seed cake ends up with these properties.
Neem cake is used in agriculture, horticulture, floriculture and the turf industry as an organic fertilizer as well as a natural nematicide. Neem cake is used as an organic fertilizer because of the various micro and macro nutrients which it is composed of. It will control, at the same time, soil based pathogens as well as nematodes. It will also inhibit nitrification of the soil plus enhance the efficiency of nitrogen providing fertilizer.
Why should you use Neem Cakes?
There are several reasons why you should use Neem Cake as a soil amendment:
It’s bio-degradable and can be used with many other different types of fertilizers.
It will enhance the efficiency other fertilizers you use because it will inhibit nitrification.
Also it’s free from any heavy metals so it’s safe for crop use.
It releases slowly which means the nutrient release is uniform. This ensures constant growth of your crops or plants during the growing season. Because it will release the nutrients slowly that means your crops will have nutrients throughout the growing time.
The Neem cakes act as a nutrient for plants instead of being a nutrient collector. The Neem cake contains NPK (nitrogen- phosphorus-potassium) plus other micro nutrients so your plants are fed continually.
What are some other benefits of using Neem cakes?
There are other benefits to using Neem cakes as well such as:
Neem cakes are more cost efficient because the fertilizer in them lasts longer. The Neem cake remains effective until the next crop is planted because of its long sustaining organic fertilizer compounds too. This, in turn, cuts the cost of having to add extra nutrients; always a bonus.
This soil amendment is twofold. It will provide a better crop yield because it will provide the nutrients that crops need. And two, it helps to cure diseases and will control the growth of nematodes and harmful plant pathogens. Plus, the crop yield is higher when using Neem cakes than with any other fertilizer; at between 15-25%.
Neem cakes can also improve the organic content of the soil by providing lots of micro and macro nutrients. This also improves the fertility of the soil in which your plants or crops are planted.
The use of Neem cakes too will increase the water holding capability of the soil and improve soil structure. With the soil improvement there will be an increase in beneficial organisms like earthworms also. Plus, Neem Cakes will control harmful organisms like nematodes and pathogens. And the use of these cakes reduces the alkaline content in the soil because when they decompose, this produces organic acids.
Neem is also compatible with the microbes in your soil and will improve the rhizospere micro flora which will help to ensure your soil is fertile too. Also, Neem cake will help improve to the texture of your soil, the organic content and water holding capacity as stated as well as helping to keep the soil aerated for root development.
How do Neem Cakes work against Nematodes?
Nematodes are hidden enemies that lurk in your soil ready to destroy or reduce crop yield in both your crops and your plants. Neem Cake uses different mechanisms to help control nematodes and plant pathogens which are soil borne.
