Effect of chemical pesticides on growth characteristics of Metarhizium anisopliae (Metschnikoff) Sorokin

Author(s): Band SS, Kabre GB and Dhurve NG
Abstract: The outcomes on compatibility of different chemical pesticides with M. anisopliae clearly indicate that the highest mycelial growth (75.17 mm) was observed in flonicamid 50% WG followed by imidacloprid 17.8% SL (70.50 mm). The minimum (16.48 percent) growth inhibition of M. anisopliae was observed in pesticidal treatment with flonicamid 50% WG which indicates its better compatibility with M. anisopliae. Among chemical pesticides tested for their compatibility, the minimum percent growth inhibition was observed in flonicamid 50% WG (16.48 percent) followed by imidacloprid 17.8 SL (21.67 percent), deltamethrin 2.5% EC (26.30 percent) and chlorantraniliprole 18.5% SC (27.78 percent) indicating better compatibility with M. anisopliae than dimethoate 30% EC (69.07 percent), clothanidin 25% WG (54.81 percent) and difenthiuron 50% WP (51.30 percent) in which more than 50 percent growth inhibition was observed. Among fungicides, all the three fungicides propiconazole 25% EC (94.44 percent), difenoconazole 25% EC (77.22 percent) and copper oxychloride 50% WP (56.85 percent) indicating that they are not compatible with M. anisopliae.
