No limit

Mode of action:

NeemAzal is a slow acting naturally based anti-feeding insecticide. When used early , or prior to an increase in pest numbers, it leads to feeding inhibition and to moulting, also to a reduction in fecundity and breeding ability. The formulation of the product greatly assists the transport of the active ingredient into the leaf. The formulation is naturally based neem extract, plant oils and a surfactant from a renewable resource.


Not a water hazardous material. Low toxicity to bees.

Environmental fate:

NeemAzal formulations are metabolised by micro-organisms and water very rapidly.
The active ingredient is rapidly degraded hydrolytically and thermolytically.


When applied at the recommended rates, this product is usually harmless to non-target species and to beneficial insects like Encarsia wasp and predatory mites of the family Phytoseiidac.


Low toxicity, non mutagenic. Acute oral LD50 > 5000 mg/kg rat. Acute dermal LD50 > 2000 mg/kg rat.

First aid:

If swallowed, give two glasses of water. Do not induce vomiting. Get medical advice.
Eye splashes: irrigate with a stream of water for 15 minutes. Get medical advice.
Skin splashes: Wash immediately with clean water.


Bees: Only apply to plants in flower when bees are not foraging ie early morning or evening.
Standard precautions also apply. See Product Index, page 4.

Withholding period:

Nil all crops. NZ trials have shown no residues on crops (apple, grape, avocado). A period of 3 days should elapse between the last application and harvesting of all crops as a precautionary approach.


Do not apply if rain is likely to fall within three hours following treatment.


No additional surfactant or wetting agent is required.


May be tank mixed with commonly used fungicides except lime sulphur, Bordeaux mixture and other copper compounds.


Thorough coverage of plants is essential for optimal results. Can be applied through any calibrated conventional ground spraying equipment. Water rates will depend on the crop and growth stage. When using concentrate spraying techniques and low water rates, adjust the dilution rate accordingly. Note: Following application, insects will stop feeding , become inactive and stop causing damage. Pests may still be present on treated plants for some time after application.

Recommended Uses:

Controls a wide range of pests including aphids, bronze beetle, erinose mite, whitefly, leaf-mining flies, mealy bug , scale insects, potato tuber moth, brown beetle (grass grub), cicada, weevils and midges. It should be combined with Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) insecticides to provide more complete protection against caterpillar where they are a problem with multiple generations. Note: For greenhouse crops ensure complete coverage of the underside of al leaves. Aphids: Use 300-500 ml/100 litres water and apply when pests are first seen. Monitor crop and repeat application 10-14 days later if necessary.
Mealy bug, thrips, whitefly: Use 500 ml/100 litres of water and apply when pests are first seen. When monitoring indicates high numbers of pests are present, a cluster of 2-4 sprays at 7-10 day intervals may be necessary to achieve optimal control.
Mites and leaf mining flies: Use 500 ml/100 litres of water and apply 2-4 sprays at 7-10 day intervals.
