The active ingredient Azadirachtin

In 1968 Azadirachtin was a hot topic of research in the scientific community at that time. The synthesis method by extracting from the Neem tree - Azadirachta indica was announced by a research group of Steven Ley, Cambridge in 2007. With the ability to inhibit the growth of insects without harming humans and the environment, Azadirachtin has become an important tool in effective and sustainable insect management.

The appearance of Azadirachtin is usually a light brown to dark brown liquid, or a white crystalline solid. With biological characteristics, the evaporation temperature drops, starting at >58°C, melting point 154-158°C, very difficult or insoluble in water at normal temperature, soluble in organic solvents.

Azadirachtin has a systemic anticoagulant effect and inhibits insect growth and development. It mainly acts on the endocrine system of insects and reduces the release of ecdysone (the hormone that helps insects molt). It can also directly destroy the epidermal structure or prevent chitin formation in the epidermis, hinder respiratory metabolism, and affect the development of the reproductive system. The mechanism of action is special and affects many parts of pests, so it is not easy to create drug resistance.

In modern agriculture, Azadirachtin is widely used to control crop pests such as caterpillars, beetles, and stink bugs. This product is also often applied in controlling harmful pests such as downy mildew and mold on crops, helping to protect the yield and quality of the crop.

Common pesticide forms of Azadirachtin are usually EC, SL. In addition, it can be combined with other biological drugs such as Abamectin, Emamectin Benzoate, Matrine, Spinosad. With a special mechanism of action, the amount needed in the drug is usually only 0.1% - 3%, which is effective enough for preventing and controlling harmful insects.
