The Neem Tree is part of the Mahogany family. Neem is a well known, natural alternative to synthetic pesticides. One of the active ingredients in Neem leaf is azadirachtin. Rather than acting as a poison, which is the case with many other pesticides, azadirachtin is processed by insects much like a natural hormone and introduces antifeedant, repellent and growth inhibiting behavior. Neem is also proving to be an effective fungicide for the prevention and control of many plant diseases such as powdery mildew, black spot, down mildew, rust, leaf spot and botrytis. Other Key constituents include: Alkaloids and liminoids, including azadirachitin, gedunin, nimbin, nimbidin, nimbinene desacetylnimbinase, nimbandial, nimbolide and quercentin.
When it comes to Neem so much is left out of the conversation, the least of which are the 14 other types of Azadirachtin that are not in single compound isolates like Azamax (natural pesticide). The Neem tree contains hundreds of active compounds, mostly triterpenoids, that are responsible for its pesticidal properties. Meliantriol, Salannin, Nimbin, Nimbidin, Ochinolide, Azadirachtol, Azadirachnol, Azadiradione are a few that all have antifeedant properties all in their own right. Hundreds of other compounds like these, plus flavonoids/coumarins, phenols etc are all found, in varying quantities, throughout the Neem tree.
