Neem Cake

What exactly is Neem cake?

Neem cake is the de-oiled residue that can be used after Neem kernels are crushed for their oil. In this seed kernel are nutrients like NPK (nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) as well as nortriterpenoids and isoprenoids. These nutrients are nematicidal in nature so the seed cake ends up with these properties.


Neem cake is used in agriculture, horticulture, floriculture and the turf industry as an organic fertilizer as well as a natural nematicide. Neem cake is used as an organic fertilizer because of the various micro and macro nutrients which it is composed of. It will control, at the same time, soil based pathogens as well as nematodes. It will also inhibit nitrification of the soil plus enhance the efficiency of nitrogen providing fertilizer.

Why should you use Neem Cakes?

There are several reasons why you should use Neem Cake as a soil amendment:

  • It’s bio-degradable and can be used with many other different types of fertilizers.
  • It will enhance the efficiency other fertilizers you use because it will inhibit nitrification.
  • Also it’s free from any heavy metals so it’s safe for crop use.
  • It releases slowly which means the nutrient release is uniform. This ensures constant growth of your crops or plants during the growing season. Because it will release the nutrients slowly that means your crops will have nutrients throughout the growing time.
  • The Neem cakes act as a nutrient for plants instead of being a nutrient collector. The Neem cake contains NPK (nitrogen- phosphorus-potassium) plus other micro nutrients so your plants are fed continually.

What are other benefits of using Neem cakes?

There are other benefits to using Neem cakes as well such as:

  • Neem cakes are more cost efficient because the fertilizer in them lasts longer. The Neem cake remains effective until the next crop is planted because of its long sustaining organic fertilizer compounds too. This, in turn, cuts the cost of having to add extra nutrients; always a bonus.
  • This soil amendment is twofold. It will provide a better crop yield because it will provide the nutrients that crops need. And two, it helps to cure diseases and will control the growth of nematodes and harmful plant pathogens. Plus, the crop yield is higher when using Neem cakes than with any other fertilizer; at between 15-25%.
  • Neem cakes can also improve the organic content of the soil by providing lots of micro and macro nutrients. This also improves the fertility of the soil in which your plants or crops are planted.
  • The use of Neem cakes too will increase the water holding capability of the soil and improve soil structure. With the soil improvement there will be an increase in beneficial organisms like earthworms also. Plus, Neem Cakes will control harmful organisms like nematodes and pathogens. And the use of these cakes reduces the alkaline content in the soil because when they decompose, this produces organic acids. 

Neem is also compatible with the microbes in your soil and will improve the rhizospere micro flora which will help to ensure your soil is fertile too. Also, Neem cake will help improve to the texture of your soil, the organic content and water holding capacity as stated as well as helping to keep the soil aerated for root development.

How do Neem Cakes work against Nematodes?

Nematodes are hidden enemies that lurk in your soil ready to destroy or reduce crop yield in both your crops and your plants. Neem Cake uses different mechanisms to help control nematodes and plant pathogens which are soil borne.

  • When Neem cakes are used at the earlier stages of a crop cycle, this provides protection from nematodes and plant pathogens. The Neem Cakes do contain, in their makeup, nortriterpenoids and isoprenoids which are nematicidal. So the earlier it’s used in planting, the more protection that is provided.
  • Crops will show nematicidal properties in the roots too as a systemic feature because of using Neem Cakes in the early stage of your crops or plants’ cycle.
  • When it organically decomposes, the Neem cakes release fatty acids, Ketones, aldehydes, Amino acids, free sulphur and carbohydrates. These affect the nematode population because the metabolites are nema-toxic in nature. Plus, the by-products of the Neem Cake decomposing will increase the microbes in the soil parasitic activity on nematodes. The end result is a reduced population of nematodes.
  • As an extra feature, Neem cakes can manage pest control of insects and pests. This is because the cakes contain salanin, nimbin, azadirachtin and azadiradione as major components. These components cause seven types of activities to happen in the soil :

1) Antifeedant
2) Attractant
3) Repellent
4) Insecticide
5) Nematicide
6) Growth disruptor
7) Antimicrobial


Using Neem cakes with Urea

When Neem Cake is used with urea and other fertilizers with nitrogen in them, it increases their efficiency because it reduces the rate of nitrification. This then reduces the rate that the nitrogen is released and increases the length of time nitrogen is in the soil. Neem cake makes the soil become more fertile because it has an ingredient in it that blocks soil bacteria from turning nitrogenous compounds into nitrogen gas. This is what prolongs how long the nitrogen is available in the soil for both the growing of long duration crops and short duration crops.

Neem Cake fertilizer is the most favored product used for plant fertilization by farmers and gardeners. It also acts as a bio fertilizer by providing the required nutrients, nitrogen and phosphorus necessary for growing crops and plants. Its use basically ensures a high yield of crop. Neem is used for both cash and food crops, such as sugarcane and vegetables.
