I'm seeing this being done using Jiffy Seed Starting Mix and a form of Neem oil. I have clarified hydrophobic extract of Neem oil 70% by Garden Safe brand. I'm thinking about diluting 4-Tablespoons to a gallon of water then adding enough of it to the Starting mix to properly moisten it. Please send me some information regarding my .headache.

What is the Neem supposed to be doing? Confused

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

I read the study that crawgarden provided. Thank You!

The study results say that Neem extract kills microorganisms in soil. The conclusion is that if you plan to use it, you should add organic fertilizer to replace the organisms you are killing.

My question now is Why?
