With an objective to explore the possibility of biocontrol of white grubs using entomopathogenic fungi, an exploratory tudy was conducted in the Syangja and Parbat districts in nepal in the winter of 2001/2002. In order to explore the occurrence of indigenous fungal pathogens of white grubs, field and laboratory experiments were carried out and information were collected from all available sources. Upon collection of the white grubs the entomopathogenic fungus Metarhizium anisopliae was found… 
The potential of entomopathogens in biological control of white grubs
TLDR
In India, good control of white grubs in paddy, ginger and sugarcane has been achieved with different entomofungi and among EPNs, Heterorhabditis bacteriophora is moderately effective against Popillia japonica and Rhizotrogus majalis.
Virulence of Native Isolates of Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana Against Helicoverpa armigera in Nepal
The native isolates of entomopathogenic fungi, Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana, were evaluated against the third instar larvae of the chickpea pod borer, Helicoverpa armigera, for
Efficacy of Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana against Helicoverpa armigera in Chickpea, under Field Conditions in Nepal
TLDR
The native isolates of Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana have potential to be a biocontrol agent against the H. armigera in Nepal.
FIELD MORTALITY RESPONSE OF CABBAGE BUTTERFLY ( Pieris brassicae nepalensis Doubleday ) AGAINST ECOFRIENDLY MEASURES AT PAKLIHAWA , RUPANDEHI , NEPAL
The experiment was conducted to devise the effective method for eco-friendly management of cabbage butterfly by using entomopathogens and locally available botanical extracts. The field research was
