ABSTRACT

The three bio-control agents, viz. Beauveria bassiana, B. brongniartii and Metarhizuim anisopliae proved pathogenic at each level of concentration 1x108, 1x106, 1x104 and 1x102 spore mL-1) studied, but mortality in a shorter duration was observed at a spore concentration of 1x108 spore mL-1. Enhanced mortality was observed with increase in inoculum dose.
