Over the years, extensive use of commercially available synthetic pesticides against phytophagous insects has led to their bioaccumulation in the environment causing increased resistance and reduction in soil biodiversity. Further, 90% of the applied pesticides enter the various environmental resources as a result of run-off, exposing the farmers as well as consumers of the agricultural produce to severe health issues. Therefore, growing attention has been given toward the development of…

BOTANICAL INSECTICIDES , DETERRENTS , AND REPELLENTS IN MODERN AGRICULTURE AND AN INCREASINGLY REGULATED WORLD
■ Abstract Botanical insecticides have long been touted as attractive alternatives to synthetic chemical insecticides for pest management because botanicals reputedly pose little threat to the
The commercial use of azadirachtin and its integration into viable pest control programmes
TLDR
Azadirachtin exhibits good efficacy against key pests such as whiteflies, leafminers, fungus gnats, thrips, aphids and many leaf-eating caterpillars and has a good fit into classical Integrated Pest Management programmes.
DEVELOPING A NEEM-BASED INSECTICIDE FOR CANADA
TLDR
Both antifeedant and insect growth regulatory activities of various samples of neem seed oil are shown to be correlated to azadirachtin concentrations in the oils, indicating that the neem insecticide provides pest control as effective as or better than pyrethrum, the current botanical insecticide of choice for organic growers.
Insecticidal activity of garlic juice in two dipteran pests
TLDR
It is concluded that the insecticidal efficacy of a commercially produced food grade garlic juice may provide an effective, naturally‐derived insecticide for use in agricultural systems against dipteran pests.
Essential oils as green pesticides potential and constraints
TLDR
It is in developing countries which are rich in endemic plant biodiversity that these pesticides may ultimately have their greatest impact in future integrated pest management (IPM) programmes due to their safety to non-target organisms and the environment.
Nematicidal Potential of the Neem Tree Azadirachta indica (A. Juss)
TLDR
Various products prepared from the leaves and seeds of the neem plant have been reported as effective protectants against nematode pests when used as root-dips and seed treatments and a review critically assesses the potential of these products in the management of nematodes in tropical agriculture.
Larvicidal activity of neem oil (Azadirachta indica) formulation against mosquitoes
TLDR
The neem oil formulation was found effective in controlling mosquito larvae in different breeding sites under natural field conditions and may prove to be an effective and eco-friendly larvicide, which could be used as an alternative for malaria control.
Azadirachtin from the neem tree Azadirachta indica: its action against insects
TLDR
The behavioral and physiological properties of azadirachtin, including effects on insect reproduction, direct and "secondary" antifeedancy, and the physiological effects measured as growth reduction, increased mortality and abnormal and delayed moults are reviewed.
Anticancer biology of Azadirachta indica L (neem): A mini review
TLDR
The cogent data on the anticancer biology of products from A. indica deserve multi-institutional clinical trials as early as possible, so the prospects of relatively cheaper cancer drugs could be brighter, particularly for the under-privileged cancer patients of the world.
