Oil formulation of Metarhazium flavoviride from IIBC, CABI was used for the field trial on the control of grasshoppers in the arid grassland, Xinjiang. Cage test showed that death of infection began at 9th day after application and the verified mortality was 93.86% at 13th day (2 hour sample). The field population decreased by 25% at 12th day and 35% at 15th day after application. That the result was not as good as that showed in Africa was due to the weak infectivity of the conidia of this… 
Molecular detection of the airborne entomopathogen fungus Metarhizium acridum using specific oligonucleotides
TLDR
This technique was applied to an agricultural region of Mexico, where M. acridum was sprayed to control the grasshopper, Sphenarium purpurascens, population, with great accuracy.
