Please join the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Integrated Pest Management for a webinar on using neem as a botanical pesticide in IPM programs and the potential for farmers and entrepreneurs to develop local neem-based biopesticides. Neem trees are ubiqui- tous in Asia, Africa, and Central America, and their seeds and leaves contain natural insecticidal properties, making it a safe and highly effective botanical pesticide. The presenters will introduce participants to neem-based botanical pesticides, discuss its insecticidal properties, explain the extraction process, and discuss the potential economic opportunities for farmers and entrepreneurs.
