Use Of Mycotrol Residue Containing B. Bassiana
Mycotech produces Mycotrol, a commercial preparation of Beauveria bassiana (Bb). The residuecontains 109 spores of Bb per gram which could be economically used to reduce European corn borer(ECB) damage to corn crops. The objective is to develop an economic bio-control strategy for ECB.Three strategies for applying the Mycotrol residue to corn are proposed:¿ inoculating the seed and/or soil during planting,¿ inoculating the corn whorl, and¿ inoculating the soil after harvest to remove the overwintering corn borer larvae.
