Neem oil is beneficial for improving growth and preventing pests in cabbage. Applying neem oil to cabbage can help prevent pests such as cabbage worms, aphids, and cabbage flies. Additionally, neem oil can contribute to enhanced plant growth and health.
The dosing of neem oil in cabbage depends on the concentration of neem oil and the amount of water used. Generally, using 0.5-1% neem oil in water for spraying the plants is recommended.

It's important to thoroughly mix the solution before use and ensure complete coverage of the entire plant, including the undersides of leaves.
It's advisable to spray cabbage every 7-10 days during the growing season to achieve the best effect in preventing pests and improving plant growth. Keep in mind that neem oil is not 100% effective against all types of pests, so it's recommended to combine it with other pest control methods.
