The neem tree…

But what most people don’t know, is that the neem tree has a big potential in the seeds as well as the leaves.

Neem oil which is pressed out of the seeds, is an ingredient for making soap, and a natural insect repellent.

Neem seeds and leaves when grinded, can be mixed with the soil and then results in an effective natural fertilizer, as well as it protects plant roots against nematodes and white ants.

There are many other applications, both in Africa and well as in Europe for bio-farming.

The neem tree is very drought resistant. It can grow anywhere, no matter how poor or sandy the soil, and therefore it’s an excellent reforestation tree. People are therefore encouraged to plant more of them, for this reason, and for it’s economic benefits, as well as having a weapon against diseases spread by insects like malaria.
