Field experiments were conducted in farmers holding during 2017-19 in view to develop ecofriendly strategies for the management of white grub in sugarcane crop. Various bio inoculants with required dose per hectare were prepared and multiplied in well decomposed farm yard manure of 50 kgs and mixed with 2500 kgs of decomposed FYM at the time of application for easy handling and applied near root zone during earthing up (during May/June). Among the various bio inoculants tested, soil application of Metarhizium anisoplaie (4 x 109 cfu @ 5 kg/ha at the time of earthing up would significantly effective in reducing white grub population (more than 80%) with in 45th day of application and recorded highest cane yield of 81.05 t/ha with commercial cane sugar of 12.61% which accounted for 37.28% higher yield than untreated control.
