Abstract:

Beauveria bassiana (Balsamo) Vuillemin (Ascomycota: Hyphocreales) is a facultative pathogen with wide host range. The bioefficacy of entomopathogens in relation to number of conidia in B.bassiana were chance to increase the bioefficacy with respect to the mortality of lepidopteran larvae by adding minerals. These minerals are namely calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc were added to SDAY media at 10, 20, 50, 100 and 500 ppm. As a result the efficacy of entomopathogns will increase. The cumulative per cent mortality with nano enriched B. bassiana was ranged between 16.67 and 90.00 per cent in different treatments. The highest per cent mortality (90.00) was recorded with MgO at 50 ppm which is on par with CaO 20 ppm and FeO 10 ppm based B. bassiana, followed by ZnO at 10 ppm (83.33). Where as in control it was 16.67 per cent during 2016. Similarly during 2017 also the same treatments have given the highest per cent mortality compare to other treatments.
