  • Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuellemin, Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin and Vertillium lecanii are entomopathogenic fungi (EPF) that occur naturally in the environment and have a potential as biological control agents against many insect pests. A laboratory study was conducted to mass produce entomopathogenic fungus, Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae and Verticillium lecanii on nine different agricultural and industrial waste substrates. The maximum yield (278.75 X 10 6… CONTINUE READING
