Neem + Azadirachtin Crop Safety – 2022

Research Summary Abstract

ANEEM (neem oil + azadirachtin) is an extract from the neem plant which has insecticidal, miticidal and some nematicidal and fungicidal properties. The IR-4 Project completed 23 crop safety trials on seven environmental horticulture plant species or genera during 2020, 2021 and 2022. Overall, no or minimal transitory phytotoxicity was observed on all crops except Anthirrhinum majus where minor to moderate injury symptoms were detected with increasing application rates. More information should be generated on this species to better understand the phytotoxicity risks that may come from repeated applications of ANEEM.
