Naturally Neem – Commercial Registered Insecticide since 2008
From the beginning
'Naturally Neem' has been developed as a commercial natural insecticide for New Zealand growers and conditions
As an experienced grower of market garden vegetables in Maungatapere, Whangarei, Grant has long been advocating IPM and organic practices.
"There has always been a need, for a natural affordable commercially viable insecticide."
So we formulated 'Naturally Neem’ as an effective broad-spectrum Emulsifiable concentrate and the first commercially registered Neem based insecticide for use on all food crops in New Zealand.
This took us many years as the registration process is arduous, and if you don't have a scientific background almost impossible to achieve. You would think someone would have beaten us to it but due to large chemical companies needing to have a patent for everything they sell, this is not possible with Neem (India owns it, well done India). so you see, we are here to help the environment from contamination and growers to be able to see the product development to something attractive enough to sell.
This is our passion.

IT IS AN OFFENCE to use this product on animals.
Neem is well known around the world.
Well before us
It is now known to affect over 200 species of insect, by acting mainly as an anti-feeding and growth disruption, acts as a pest reproduction controller.
Neem oil comes from the tree Azadirachta indica, a South Asian and Indian plant common as an ornamental shade tree. It has many traditional uses outside of the insecticidal traits. For centuries, the seeds have been used in wax, oil and soap preparations. It is currently an ingredient in many organic cosmetic products too. Neem oil can be extracted from most parts of the tree, but the seeds hold the highest concentration of the insecticidal compound. The effective compound is Azadirachtin, and it is found in highest amounts in the seeds. There are numerous neem oil uses, but gardeners hail it for its anti-fungal and pesticide properties.
