Effect of temperature on pathogenicity of Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin and Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin against Spodoptera litura Fab. larvae



Effect of temperature on pathogenicity of Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin and Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin against Spodoptera litura Fab. larvae



Indian Journal of Plant Protection 32(2): 45-47



The pathogenicity of the entomopathogenic fungi, Beauveria bassiana and Metarhizium anisopliae, against Spodoptera litura were tested at 20 and 30 degrees C in the laboratory. The LC50 values of B. bassiana, at 20 and 30 degrees C, were 4.2 and 15.1x106 conidia ml-1, 6.2 and 24.3x106 conidia ml-1, and 8.5 and 25.8x106 conidia ml-1 against second, third and fourth instar larvae, respectively.
