Microbial Bio-Control Laboratory

A microbial laboratory is functional at ICAR-NCIPM, New Delhi. The cultures of important microbial bio-control agents viz., Trichoderma spp., Pseudomonas flourescens, Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae, Verticillium lecanii and Paecilomyces lilacinus have been maintained in this microbial laboratory. The available microbial bio-agents are being applied in experimental purposes in various IPM trials of this Centre. Their efficacy is also being tested against major diseases and insect pests. The protocols for mass production of microbial bio-agents have also been standardised. Qualities testing of available products have also been established. Diagnostics on the basis of phenotypic characters of important fungal bio-control agents only like Trichoderma, Beauveria,  Metarhizium, Verticillium and Paecilomyces  are also available.

  Entomology laboratory:

  • Rearing of insects (Spodoptera litura) in the laboratory for insect culture and bioassay of entomopathogenic fungus.
  • Observation of field collected samples of small insect pests and parasitoids under microscope.
