SOIL BUDDY is an excellent Organic Fertiliser made from Neem Seed Cake.  It is the most popular of all Oil Cakes as Fertilizer for Plants.  SOIL BUDDY contains all the major plant essential nutrients like Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium in its naturally occurring organic form.  SOIL BUDDY is made from the cakes of Neem Fruit and is in the powder form.  It is highly suitable as a basal fertiliser for all plants and turfs.  The slow release of nutrients from SOIL BUDDY ensues prolonged supply of nutrition to the plants.

The Neem bitters present in SOIL BUDDY also protects the roots from soil-borne insects and pathogens.  The narrow C : N ratio of SOIL BUDDY also enables faster degradation in the soil for form Humus which improves the fertility and productivity of the soils.

MODE OF ACTION 

SOIL BUDDY improves the plant health as an organic fertilizer by:

  • The plant nutrients contained in SOIL BUDDY is organically bound and helps slow release to the root zone to ensure continuous availability of nutrients to the plants at all stages.
  • Due to the slow release of nutrients prolonged support in the growth of plants is ensured.
  • Since SOIL BUDDY is made from Neem Fruit cakes, the residues after decomposition are non-toxic to soils and in fact, become much needed organic carbon and then Humus.
