Abstract

Microbial control of plant pathogens and insect pest is an importantcomponent of effects to reduce our reliance on chemical pesticides andincrease sustainability of agriculture.

B.bassiana has potential as biological control agentfor plant pathogens as well. Development of biopesticides that cancontrol both plant pathogens and insect pests can have enormous valuefor plant protection in agriculture, with many environmentaladvantages. Among the various biocontrol methods used to controlinsects, fungal entomopathogen, Beauveria bassiana is highly promising.
