Preparation of neem extract to protect vegetables from insects


In our sustainable farming project, we do not apply chemicals to fight crop pests, but prepare our own natural pesticides from naturally available materials. In the photo, Charles Joseph, one of the casual workers, is instructed by the Livelihood Officer how to prepare a mixture of neem leaves, aloe vera, red pepper, vinegar and water, all crushed and mixed together. This amalgam must rest for 2 days before it is ready for use. This natural insecticide will be used against aphids and caterpillars, common pests that tend to destroy or damage vegetables.
