Neem considerations post harvest

Neem considerations post harvest
May 18, 2017 09:04PM
In an attempt to keep Spotted Wing Drosophila and cane borers at bay this year, my current plan is to continue holistic sprays, or at least Neem though the summer harvest of raspberries. According to Cornell , the official published reentry time for Trilogy Neem is 4 hours, and there is a Pre-harvest Interval of 'up to a day'.Having sprayed Neem for a few years now and inadvertently caught a few drops on the lips, I can definitively say that it won't improve the flavor profile of the berries! How long till that flavor wears off? Could I really spray one day and pick marketable fruit the next? What about chemical ingestion? I know it's organic and all, but that doesn't mean its good for you! Thanks for your thoughts and advice.
