Neem cake is made from peeled and pressed Neem seeds (also called "Niem") and is produced during the extraction of Neem oil.
If you mix neem cake with potting soil or work it into the garden soil, it is enriched with calcium, nitrogen, phosphorus, magnesium and fertilizing salts. Neem also contains the substance azadirachtin, which is approved for organic farming.
In the countries of Asia, Africa and Latin America, Neem is traditionally used against parasites in domestic animals such as ticks, lice, fleas or intestinal parasites. In agriculture and horticulture it is the universal plant-strengthening and disease-repellent effect of Neem that many cultures use. For example, Indian farmers use ground Neem seeds or Neem press cakes not only to enrich the soil, but also to expel and ward off insect pests such as caterpillars, beetle larvae, grasshoppers, cicadas, leaf miners, aphids and bugs.
