too much neem oil application

Zone steele mo | gaylabrooke added on June 10, 2017 | Answered

I applied too much neem oil to my vegetables plants approx. 3 days ago. I know this is the problem because the next day the foliage began to spot and dry and crumble in some areas. My question is have I damaged the plants beyond repair? Is there a way to prevent total plant loss? I know I need to act fast. I am not sure if I should cut off the bad leaves and continue to let it repair, if possible or remove the plants and start over. Would rinsing foliage after 3 days make a difference?

Rinsing would not likely help. Try shielding the plants from direct sun for a few days.
