A Herbal Pesticide

The present technology provides a sprayable biopesticidal composition comprising Photorhabdus luminescens for controlling and eradicating various agricultural pests. It is for the first time that the insecticidal activity of P. luminescens is used without its symbiotic carrier nematode. In the present technology the actively growing cells of P. luminescens are encapsulated in sodium alginate beads and
examined for their ability to infect insect hosts. Several laboratory and field testing programme were carried out to evaluate and assess the product. Elaborative and extensive field trials were conducted to study the efficacy of the product on the serious pest of sugarcane. The results obtained from these experiments have
given a clear indication that the product is very effective and is novel based on the bacterium Photorhabdus luminescence and the plant, bacterial and insect chitinase purified to greatest extent and stabilized for longer shelf life.
