Neem (Azardicta Indica) oil and seed known to have inherent germicidal properties and has been in use for Ayurvedic (herbal) medicines in India since long time ago. Neem is also widely grown in other Asian countries and tropical and sub-tropical areas of Africa, America and Australia. It grows well in poor shallow, degraded, and saline soil. The neem leaves, oils and products there from are used as medicine, pesticide, fertilizer, diabetic food, soap, tooth paste, animal feed and even as a contraceptive. Neem is the most important among all Biopesticides for controlling pests, nematodes (reducing various diseases). This pesticide does not leave any residue on the crop like other chemical pesticides and therefore, is preferred. The efficiency of neem pesticides can be increased by improving by various methods like crop rotation, sanitation, deep ploughing, soil solarization, mixed cropping, exploiting the source of resistance and the improving quality of neem seed etc. Neem pesticide are thus a potential alternative to chemical based pesticides and their use can avoid the dumping- off of thousands of tonnes of agro chemical on earth every year and will thus give us a pesticide residue free crop and safe environment. The countries where neem trees are growing in abundance can earn foreign exchange since the product has good export potential. In the last decade, neem has become a source of natural insecticide by replacing synthetic pesticides due to its non-toxicity, environmental safety etc. Neem derivatives have applied against several species of storage pests and crop pests as leaves, oil, cake, and extracts and as formulations in neem oil. These are use alone or with other insecticides.
