Abstract
  • Microsclerotia (MS) production by two isolates of Lecanicillium lecanii on various culture media is described, and the efficacy of MS against western flower thrips is evaluated. High concentrations of MS (2.9-3.1×10⁵•mL⁻¹) were produced in media with C: N ratios of 7.4:1 and 10.3:1 by isolate SN21. Bioassays using soil-incorporated MS resulted in significant infection and mortality of thrips.
