Tablets made from neem seed powder:
It takes more time and energy to prepare the neem seed kernel suspension at farmer’s end. As per the research done by the ICAR, Bengaluru, neem seed powder in pellet form will be available. Spray suspension can be made by these pellets and can be used for the control of insect pests like aphids, diamondback moth larvae, leaf eating caterpillars infesting cabbage & cauliflower. Thus, farmers will save time and energy to make the neem seed kernel suspension traditionally. Such Neem Pellet Powder Formulation (NSPPF) will be available to farmers in the near future. Presently, such demonstrations are going at IIHR, Bengaluru.
