A large-scale method for producing the fungal pathogen,Hirsutella thompsonii, in submerged culture was developed in the laboratory to supply adequate quantities for studies of field efficacy against the citrus rust mite. Laboratory fermentors consisted of 18.9 liter sterilizable solution bottles stopped with aeration heads that were connected in series to supply a closed system for the passage of the sterile compressed air necessary for agitation and for supplying oxygen to the liquid… CONTINUE READING
