      Abstract: Trichoderma spp. are long been recognized as efficient fungal biocontrol agents for the control of plant disease and for their ability to increase plant growth and development. Management of soil borne diseases has become very much important since it causes high crop yield losses. The present study was carried out to isolate Trichoderma spp. from soil samples collected from different locations of Kerala and to test their in vitro efficacy against soil borne pathogens viz., Pythium aphanidermatum and Rhizoctonia solani. The Trichoderma spp. was isolated on Trichoderma Selective Medium (TSM) and observed that the isolates differed in radial growth and colony characters such as colony colour, texture and sporulation. In vitro studies revealed the potential of Trichoderma isolates against soil borne pathogens. Isolates TRPN3 and TRPN7 exhibited no sporulation and white mycelial colour. Isolates which completed their growth at four days after inoculation include TRKR1, TRPN3, TRPN7, TRPN10 and TRPN18. Biocontrol activities against different pathogens resulted in inhibition of pathogens. Maximum inhibition percentage was observed by the isolates TRPN7, TRPN15 and TRKR2 against both the pathogens. The maximum inhibition exhibited against both the pathogens is due to the antagonistic property displayed by the isolates.

      Abstract: Roving survey was conducted during Kharif, 2018-19 in three major groundnut growing districts of Rayalaseema in Andhra Pradesh to know the status of collar rot (caused by Aspergillus spp.) incidence under field conditions. Effect of variety, seed treatment, farming situation, soil type and cropping pattern on disease incidence was studied. Maximum collar rot incidence was observed in Anathapuramu district (17.24%) followed by Chittoor district (15.90 %) and Y.S.R. Kadapa district (12.56%). Even though fungicides were reported to be effective against collar rot of groundnut, there is limited data available on biological control of collar rot. Hence, a study was also conducted to isolate and test Trichoderma spp. that is effective against the collar rot pathogen. Eight Trichoderma spp. isolates were evaluated against six virulent Aspergillus spp. isolates (i.e., two isolates of A. niger, two isolates of A. flavus and two isolates of A. terreus) using dual culture technique. From the results it was revealed that, Trichoderma spp. isolate GT2 (88.64 %) exhibited highest overall mean per cent inhibition followed by GT1 (85.17 %) and GT7 (84.20 %). Whereas, the lowest mean per cent inhibition was recorded in GT3 (45.59 %).

      Abstract:  Investigations were made to study the effects of three nemato-pathogenic fungi viz. Purpureocillium lilacinum, P. lilacinum + neem cake, Pochonia chlamydosporia and Trichoderma sp. as well as two synthetic insecticides (cartap hydrochloride and carbosulfan) against the Root-knot Nematodes (RKN) of cardamom at the farmers’ fields in three locations of Idukki district, Kerala, India during 2016- 2019. Results revealed that the combined application of P. lilacinum with neem cake gave maximum reduction of typical symptoms of infestation like the leaf narrowing (6.42%) and root knot formation (1.32 nos.) followed by P. chlamydosporia with 8.04% narrowed leaves and 1.83 root knots. The application of P. lilacinum and neem cake in combination (0.82 kg/plant and 2.99) followed by P. chlamydosporia (0.71 kg/plant and 2.71 recorded highest yield and Benefit Cost Ratio, respectively). Bio-control agents are therefore efficient and environmentally safer for managing the RKN in cardamom. Future studies can be directed to focus on the compatibility and efficiency enhancement of these bio-agents with organic amendments.

      Abstract: Effect of various temperatures on the efficacy of five biorationals, viz. Beauveria bassiana (1.15% WP), Metarhizium anisopliae (1.15% WP), Bacillus thuringiensis (0.5% WP), Azadirachtin (300 ppm) and Spinosad (45 SC) in terms of median lethal concentration (LC50) value was evaluated against diamondback moth, Plutella xylostella larvae. The toxicity data for biorationals against P. xylostella on the basis of larval mortality revealed that M. anisopliae (1.15% WP), B. thuringiensis (0.5% WP), Azadirachtin (300 ppm) and Spinosad (45 SC) registered higher effectiveness (lower LC50 value) at 25°C whereas, increase in temperature led to declined efficacy of biorationals; whereas, use of entomopathogenic fungi, B. bassiana (1.15% WP) was most effective at 30°C and revealed lower effectiveness (higher LC50 value) at 25° and 35° C temperatures. Data on the influence of temperature on toxicity of biorationals to P. xylostella on the basis of adult emergence revealed lowest LC50 value for B. thuringiensis (0.5% WP) at 25°C and the efficacy decreased with increase in the temperature, whereas, M. anisopliae (1.15% WP), B. bassiana (1.15% WP), Azadirachtin (300 ppm) and Spinosad (45 SC) were most effective at 30°C and the higher LC50 value were evident at temperature above 30°C, indicating the reduced efficacy of biorationals with increase in temperature beyond 30°C or preference for lower temperature regimes under laboratory conditions.

      Abstract: The hog-plum, locally known as amra, is a deciduous perennial tree with thick succulent leaves and it grows all over the country, but the quality fruits are produced only in the southern districts of Bangladesh especially in Barishal and Jhalokathi districts. Its cultivation is seriously hampered by hog- hog plum beetle or 14 spotted leaf beetle, Podontia 14-punctata L. (Chrysomelidae: Coleoptera). In most of the cases, insecticidal spray is not effective for controlling this pest as pupation occurs in the soil. Therefore current study was carried out in both laboratory and field condition to develop environment friendly management approaches against hog plum beetle as well as producing of toxic chemical pesticide free hog-plum. From laboratory test, it is revealed that spraying of spinosad (Success 2.5 SC) at hog plum leaflet and drenching with microbial pesticides, soil recharge namely Lycomax (Metarhizium anisopliae + Trichoderma harzianum + Beauveria bassiana + Trichoderma viride) causes 72.22% adults and 51.85% pupal mortality of P. 14-punctata respectively. Then some pest management modules were developed based on the laboratory result and it’s were verified in field during two fruiting season 2018-19 and 2019-20. From field study it is observed that module 1: Hand picking + trunk banding with packaging tape + soil drenching with lycomax + spraying of spinosad treated trees offered lowest leaf and fruit infestation; even though trunk banding with packaging tape did not show any effect to control this pest. Fruit yield was also increased 39.04-39.66% in module 1 imposing hog plum trees compare to control. Therefore, it is clear that without banding of the hog plum trunk, hand picking + soil drenching with microbial pesticides, lycomax + spraying of spinosad might be sustainable and environment friendly pest management module against P. 14-punctata.

      Abstract: Experiment was conducted at Department of Entomology, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola during 2011- 2013 to see the effect of natural sunlight (UV) on HearNPV formulation. Experiment was laid out in Completely Randomized Block Design replicated thrice. The aqueous and dry form of HearNPV formulations were prepared by using additives viz. Tinopal an optical brightener and silver nano particle and evaluated their capability to protect NPVs from Ultra Violet rays. HearNPV formulation were sprayed uniformly on the potted chickpea plants during noon hours. Twigs were collected at thirty minutes, One hour, One and half hours and two hours after spraying and kept in petriplates. The laboratory reared second instar larvae of H. armigera were released on each treated twig. Larval mortality was recorded at 4, 7 and 10 days after treatment. An aqueous form of HearNPV formulation, HearNPV + Silver Nano Particles @ 8 'l /ml of HearNPV + Tinopal 1% + Sucrose 1% (T1) recorded 83.04% larval mortality at ten days after spraying which was at par with HearNPV alone unirradiated (84.21 % larval mortality) when exposed to sunlight up to one hour. Among the lyophilized form of formulations, HearNPV + Silver Nano Particles @ 8'l/ml of HearNPV + Tinopal 1% + Sucrose1% (T6) when exposed to sunlight up to one hour recorded 84.80% larval mortality at ten days after spraying which was at par with which was at par with HearNPV alone unirradiated (T12) (85.38% larval mortality) and higher than HearNPV alone irradiated. Both aqueous and lyophilized form of HearNPV showed decreasing larval mortality as compared to HearNPV alone unirradiated when exposed to sunlight up to one and half and two hours. Lyophilized HearNPV formulations recorded higher larval mortality as compared to aqueous form of HearNPV formulations at all sunlight exposure period.

      Abstract: Mosquitoes play a key role in the transmission of diseases such as malaria, yellow fever, Japanese encephalitis, etc. Plant based compounds form alternate source of control measures against mosquitoes, in view of deleterious effects of chemical pesticides. In the present study, insecticidal activity of aerial part of Solanum torvum (Sw.) was studied against Aedes aegypti (L.) under laboratory conditions. GC-MS study was analysed in hexane, ethyl acetate and methanol extract of S. torvum and the leaf extracts yielded around 57 compounds. In the larvicidal and adulticidal tests against A. aegypti, mortality rate increased with the increased concentrations of S. torvum extract. Highest larval mortality was obtained with ethyl acetate 100% extract at the dose of 200 'g/ml after 48 hrs experiment, followed by methanol 64% and hexane 42% leaf extract. The LC50 values of leaf extract was observed as 159.594 'g/mL, 182.272 'g/mL at 24 hrs interval and 85.2833 'g/mL, 138.472 'g/mL 48 hrs interval for ethyl acetate and methanolic extracts, respectively. In adulticidal activity highest mortality rate was obtained in ethyl acetate extract at 92% for the dose of 2 mg/ml after 24 hrs, followed by methanol 74% and hexane 52% leaf extracts. The LC50 values were 0.453 mg/mL, 0.790 mg/mL and 1.294 mg/mL with ethyl acetate, methanol and hexane extracts at 24 hrs interval against Aedes aegypti. In control treatment, no mortality rate was observed. Thus the present study showed the potential application of S. torvum leaf extract in the control of dengue mosquito under the laboratory conditions.

      Abstract: During the surveys undertaken in July-September 2020, a braconid solitary koinobiont endoparasitoid, Meteorus pulchricornis (Wesmael) (Hymenoptera: Braconidae: Euphorinae) was found parasitizing the invasive pest, fall armyworm (FAW), Spodoptera frugiperda (J. E. Smith) (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) in maize. Meteorus pulchricornis is a new addition to the known and rapidly expanding parasitoid complex of FAW in India. The present study provides morphological identification details of M. pulchricornis along with comparison notes of other closely allied and confusing species.
