Lots of studies on internet. Lots of happy neem users too, so go figure.
they're basically the same thing... but i just used what i had laying around, now that i used up the last of it, i dont think ill be buying any more neem meal anytime soon, too expensive and spikes ec too much for my liking.. also the toxicity to nematodes is a question... so im nixing it..
