Abstract:

Beauveria bassiana, an entomopathogenic fungus, was evaluated for production of conidial mass on different grain of wheat, barley, sorghum, rice and bajra. Out of five grain the highest conidial sporulation was observed on rice grain. However, it was difficult to produce the conidia at mass level due to boiling of rice grain and conversion into compact mass during sterilization resulting in difficulty for harvesting the conidial mass from conidial flask in solid state fermentation conditions. So, sorghum grain was found better then rice grain for mass production of conidial by Beauveria bassiana.
