Entomopathogenic fungi Metarhizium anisopliae and Beauveria bassiana as potential biological control agents of Coelaemenodera elaeidis of the oil palm (Elaeis guineensis Jacq.)

The potential of two entomopathogenic fungi Metarhizium anisopliae.and Beauveria bassiana for the control of Coelaemenodera elaeidis were evaluated. The objective of this study was to control C. elaeidis using entomopathogenic fungi as biocontrol agents. The pathogenicity of M. anisopliae and B. bassiana isolates were tested using direct contamination bioassay set up of 2.5 g conidia (2.5 g of Metarhizium 2.5 x 1010 or...
