Abstract

Biopesticides such as Streptomyces sp. SAI-25, Metarhizium anisopliae and neem seed powder were previously demonstrated to have biocontrol potential against Helicoverpa armigera, the polyphagous insect pest of many crops. In the present investigation, the biopesticides, Streptomyces sp. SAI-25, Metarhizium anisopliae, and neem seed powder, were evaluated for their compatibility so that these can be used as consortia to manage pod borer complex. The results reveal that all the three biopesticides were compatible with each other and hence can be used in consortia to manage H. armigera.
