Pot experiments carried out to study the efficacy of nucleopolyhedrovirus against the Bihar hairy caterpillar Spilarctia obliqua (Walker), at Bangalore indicated that a spray of NPV @ lx10' POB ml-'
Surface Ultrastructural Studies on the Germination, Penetration and Conidial Development of Aspergillus Flavus Link : Fries Infecting Silkworm, Bombyx Mori Linn
The germination, penetration and conidial development of A. flavus on the larval integument of B. mori under SEM is revealed, causing death of the host larva and ramification of the fungus through the mesodermal and epidermal tissues, leading to larval mummification about 5–6 days after inoculation.
World Review of the Natural Enemies and Diseases of Spodoptera Litura (F.) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae)
There is a considerable scope for increased attention to the role of natural enemies as component of integrated pest management programmes of S. litura as well as for periodic releases of large number of egg parasites to help in suppressing populations of this pest.
Susceptibility of tobacco caterpillar, Spodoptera litura Fab. (Noctuidae: Lepidoptera) to certain entomogenous fungi.
Five isolates of three entomogenous fungi were bioassayed for their infectivity to second instar larvae of Spodoptera litura Fab. by spraying the host larvae with the conidial suspension in the
