Fast-forward to the present day and neem is finally being utilized around the world to protect crops, increase soil nutrition, boost livestock health and strengthen global health. While still in its infancy across the Americas and Europe, the neem tree has been a feature of community life throughout Asia for centuries and is starting to become renowned worldwide for its incredible contributions to a building a more sustainable future.
