Hi Monica –

AzaMax and Azatrol contain the active ingredient azadirachtin, which is extracted from the neem seed using patented technology. Both products are OMRI listed for use in organic production and are safe to use on vegetable crops.

Apply to any food or non-food crop up to and including the day of harvest. For leafminers and other difficult to control pests, apply at a maximum rate of 1.0 to 1.6 oz per gallon of water. Two to three (2-3) applications should be scheduled at 10-14 day intervals until the pest pressure has ended.

Azadirachtin may be used as a soil drench for effective control of soil-borne insect larvae, including soil-borne larvae of foliar pests. Time soil drench applications to coincide with the early stages of young larvae and nymphs.

Note: Soil drench applications will have a slower rate of activity because of soil absorption when compared to foliar applications.

Hope it helps!
