Control of vegetable insects with neem seed extracts



Control of vegetable insects with neem seed extracts



Proceedings of the Indiana Academy of Science 1985; 94: 335-339



Experiments were conducted to assess the efficacy of crude formulations of neem seed against economically important insect pests of muskmelon in the greenhouse, and sweet maize, egg-plant potatoes and cabbage in the field in Indiana. In tests with the chrysomelid Acalymma vittatum on muskmelon, a 20% dust of ground neem seed in kaolin gave protection for 6 days after application and was not phytotoxic.
