Mycopathogens Associated with Pests of Chilli and their Pathogenicity Against Thrips (Scirtothrips dorsalis) and Mites (Polyphagotarsonemus latus)

  title={Mycopathogens Associated with Pests of Chilli and their Pathogenicity Against Thrips (Scirtothrips dorsalis) and Mites (Polyphagotarsonemus latus)},
  author={Gunasingham Mikunthan and M. Manjunatha},
Mycopathogens are often found to have close associations with pests of crops. An attempt was made to understand the association of mycopathogens with the major pests of chilli in chilli growing fields of Karnataka State of India. Soil samples were collected from the chilli fields representing ten agro-ecological zones of the state. Larvae of Tribolium castaneum and pupae of Scirtothrips dorsalis were used as soil baits to isolate fungal pathogens present in soil. Foliage sampling was also done… CONTINUE READING
