How to make Organic Pesticide – Neemastra

Hello everyone! I know this has been bothering you for quite a while now. Let me share a quick, easy and effective way to make your own pesticide.

This method was initially shared by Dr. Subhash Palekar Sir in his Zero Budget Natural Farming (ZBNF) later on renamed as Subhash Palekar Natural Farming (SPNF). If you would like to visit his site for a more detailed information, you can click here.

You’ll need just 3 ingredients

  1. Cow Dung (Gobar) – 200gms
  2. Cow Urine (Gaumutra) – 1 litre
  3. Neem Leaves (along with twigs) – 1kg

This is to give an idea of proportion. You can make as much as you need depending on the number of plants in your Garden. You can also use this on your farm.

Now in a bucket or drum – mix all the ingredients. Crush the neem leaves before adding them. Add 20 lires of water and mix well.

Keep it closed and in shade for 3 days. Mix it/stir it everyday.

After 3 days – strain it. Use it directly without diluting it any further. Fill it in a spray bottle and apply/spray it on the plants.

You can store the solution for 6 months.

Happy Gardening! 🙂
