Isaria fumosorosea for pest insect control in vegetables (Final result)

The goal of this BIOCOMES research is to develop a microbial biocontrol product based on the entomopathogenic fungus Isaria fumosorosea for the control of different pest insects on vegetables as well as test and validate its efficacy. One of the main objectives is to compare the potential of a newly selected Isaria fumosorosea isolates with the already available strain against whitefly and other important pest insects, their dose response and the potential non target- effects (beneficial insects). The efficacy of the two strains needs to be assessed under commercial application conditions in vegetable crops grown in greenhouses and open fields in the Mediterranean, as well as in Brassica crops grown in the Northern European zone.
