Let’s Understand the Advantages & Usage of Beauveria Bassiana
Beauveria Bassiana is a fungus naturally present in soil across the globe. The spores of this fungus germinate as early as they come into contact with the skin of the insect and spread to the body. It spreads the fungus throughout the body of the insect and survives on the inner nutrient. The pests die within 48 to 72 hours.
Crops: Cereals, pulses, vegetables, fruits
Target Pest: White grub, weevil, and leaf-eating caterpillar
Usage: To control the white grub, mix it in the soil or the water and drench to the roots of the plant. Or before or after the crop is sown, it can be mixed with soil or given by drip irrigation.
Usage Method: Depending on the number of pests or the crop, it can be used once every 15 to 20 days for pest management in greenhouses.
Dose: In 200 litres of water, drench or spray 2 kg per acre by mixing in 5 grams per litre of water.
