Abstract:

The present investigation was conducted to test the compatibility of pesticides on entomopathogenic fungi, Metarhizium anisopliae. The in vitro toxicity of five insecticides(Fipronil5% SC, Chlorpyriphos20% EC, Imidacloprid + Fipronil80 % WG, Imidacloprid 17.8% SL, Chlorantraniliprole 0.4% G), two fungicides (Hexaconazole 5% SC and Propiconazole 25 % EC) at different concentration for their effect on colony diameter, growth inhibition (%) and spore yield of M. anisopliae by standard poison food technique. Compatibility of M. anisopliae revealed that among the various insecticides tested with M. anisopliae Fipronil5% SCandChlorantraniliprole0.4% G showed highly compatible with least per cent growth inhibition with highest spore yield. Chlorpyriphos 20% EC, Hexaconazole 5% SC and Propiconazole 25 % ECshowed cent per cent inhibition and were most detrimental to the entomopathogen.
