Abstract

Verticillium lecanii spores (108spores ml-1) suspended in 1% (w/v) montmorillonite SCPX-1374 and 1% (w/v) of the wetting agent, EM-APW#2, which is a polyoxyethylene, had approx. 80% survival after exposure to UV-C for 30 min and about 93% after exposure to UV-B for 6 h. In greenhouse testing, cotton aphid densities increased 14-fold over their initial density in 15 d without spore application. However, initial cotton aphid densities were decreased by 60% of the initial level when plants were treated with the spore formulation.
