Water-soluble granules containing Bacillus megaterium for biological control of rice sheath blight formulation, bacterial viability and efficacy testing



Water-soluble granules containing Bacillus megaterium for biological control of rice sheath blight formulation, bacterial viability and efficacy testing



World Journal Of Microbiology & Biotechnology: 11, 2499-2507



Endospores of <i>B. megaterium</i> were formulated in granule formulations with sodium alginate, lactose and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP K-30) by the wet granulation technique. The granule formulation exhibited good physical characteristics, such as high-water solubility and optimal viscosity, that would be suitable for spray application. The bacteria remained viable in the dry granule formulation at 10<sup>9</sup> c.f.u./g after 24 months storage at room temperature.
