AzaSol is manufactured with a patented process resulting in the highest potency, powdered azadirachtin product that is also water soluble, solvent free and shelf stable for more than two years.  Unlike traditional azadirachtin products, by mixing AzaSol with water at the time of application, the solubility allows for superior flow, absorption and utilization by plants and because it is biologically-based can be applied the day of harvest.  The 6% solution offers the highest concentration available on the market.

AzaSol is intended for use on outdoor plants, food crops, mushroom houses, plants grown indoors or in greenhouses, shade cloth, interiorscapes and nurseries; it can be applied via soil drench, chemigation, injection or spray.  Studies show azadirachtin, derived from neem plants, to be a highly effective broad spectrum biological insect control, proven natural anti-feedant, growth regulator and anti-ovipository and insect repellent providing protection from insects ranging from annual bluegrass weevils to whiteflies; for a full list click here:
