Abstract

ISOLATION, CULTIVATION, IDENTIFICATION AND SCREENING OF THE ENTOMOPATHOGENIC ACTIVITY OF Beauveria bassiana ON BANANA WEEVIL

*K.Soundari, V.J.Kavitha and G.Senthilkumar

ABSTRACT

Microbial control of plant pathogens and insect pest is an important
component of effects to reduce our reliance on chemical pesticides and
increase sustainability of agriculture. Banana is the fourth most
important economic crop. Its yield decreases due to the pathogenic
effect of pests. Banana weevil, Cosmopolites sordidus is an important
economic pest of banana Beauveria bassiana is formulated in
commercially available biopesticide for control of insect pests.
Because this fungus can grow inside plants without affecting their
health of growth. B.bassiana has potential as biological control agent
for plant pathogens as well. Development of biopesticides that can
control both plant pathogens and insect pests can have enormous value
for plant protection in agriculture, with many environmental
advantages. Among the various biocontrol methods used to control
insects, fungal entomopathogen, Beauveria bassiana is highly promising. The qualitative and
quantitative estimation of protein was done to analyze the presence of protein in the fungus.
In the present study fungal protein was extracted, purified and crystallized.

Keywords: Beauveria bassiana, screening, entomopathogenic activity, crystallization.
