Orgo Neem - Organic Fertilizer Cake
Organic amendment for use in Agriculture, Horticulture, Floriculture and Turf Management ORGO NEEM CAKE is a natural organic fertilizer approved for use in organic systems by Organic Farmers & Growers (UK) and OMRI (USA).It has shown tremendous potential as a fertilizer and is widely used for sustainable agriculture as well as horticulture application. When ploughed into or mixed with the soil, ORGO NEEM CAKE acts naturally as a broad spectrum defense mechanism which improves root development and in turn plant growth and yield.
Neem is known to have natural repellent qualities due to its bitter taste and odor This dual activity of ORGO NEEM CAKE as a fertilizer and repellent has made it a favored input and is widely used in cultivation of cash crops and plants.
The dual activity of ORGO NEEM CAKE as a fertilizer and a pest repellent has made it a favoured input and it is widely used in the cultivation of cash crops.It is a wholly organic plant food which increases productivity, soil fertility and soil health.
The application of ORGO NEEM CAKE to crops provides them with various essential nutrients and prevents and treats ailment disorders of plants due to the lack or imbalance of nutritious trace elements.It helps to increase the uptake of nutrients by the plant and improves yield as the nutrients are released into the soil uniformly and over a longer period of time unlike in the case of conventional fertilizers.It is active in increasing growth and foliage, resulting in rich blossoming and strengthening of the roots, all of which help to improve the general appearance and quality of fruits and vegetables.
It protects the crop against damage caused by soil insect-pests, fungi, bacteria and nematodes by way of reducing the numbers of such pathogenic organisms. Studies conducted by the Indian Institute of Horticultural Research, Bangalore have shown that an application of Neem seed fertilizer on nursery beds can reduce Root-knot and Reniform nematodes by more than 80%,thus resulting in healthy and vigorous seedlings/saplings. In protecting young plants from insect-pests, ORGO NEEM CAKE, allows them to grow sufficiently and build their natural defenses and augments them with its nutritional and pest repellent properties.
It can also reduce alkalinity in the soil by producing organic acids when mixed with the soil. The calcium and magnesium present in it also assist in reducing alkalinity. It acts as an excellent nitrification inhibitor. By curbing the activity of nitrifying bacteria like Nitrosomonas and Nitrobacter, it reduces the nitrification rate which ensures availability and controlled release of Nitrogen required for the crop during its critical growth stage. Hence by blending with chemical fertilizers (UREA, DAP, etc.), the use of these chemical fertilizers can be reduced by up to 30%.It boosts the population of beneficial micro flora and fauna in the soil.
ORGO NEEM is safe for earthworms and, in fact, an increase of more than 20% in their population has been reported.
Working ORGO NEEM into the soil by ploughing and mixing with the soil gives better results than surface application. Apply with any standard fertilizer spreader and incorporate into top 10-15 cm of soil.
ORGO NEEM can be used by itself or can be combined with chemical fertilizers or organic manures such as farm yard manure, poultry manure, compost, press mud, etc. Though we recommend mixing at least 25-50% of ORGO NEEM, even as little as 10% shows excellent results. The quantity of chemical fertilizers can gradually be reduced.It can also be combined with potting compost for better results.
