Mass Culturing of Hirsutella thompsonii Fisher a Fungal Pathogen of Eriophyid Mites

S. Aghajanzadeh, B. Mallik and S.C. Chandrashekar

Abstract:
For the production of Hirsutella thompsonii Fisher isolates, a fungal pathogen of eriophid mites, the synthetic media and unprocessed materials were tested in submerged cultures. The liquid media, Sabouraud Maltose Broth (SMB), was found to be better in terms of mycelial production compared to other liquid media like Sabouraud Dextrose Broth (SDB), Yeast Extract Dextrose Peptone (YDP) and Potato Dextrose Broth (PDB). Maximum growth was observed in HtCRMB isolate of H. thompsonii in submerged culture followed by HtPDBC, HtCRMC, HtPMG, HtCRMK and HtEMC isolates. Mycelial growth on the synthetic medium SMB was about ten times than on media prepared using cheap, crude and unprocessed materials like Bengal gram, horse gram, red gram and maize as source of nitrogen, barley, sorghum, rice and wheat as source of carbon and combination of nitrogen and carbon sources. In submerged cultures more mycelial growth was observed in HtCRMB isolate of H. thompsonii than in other isolates.
