Table 1 Percentage mortality of the third instar of Cnaphalocrosis medinalis larvae and percentage of mycosis and sporulation from their cadavers assayed with the entomopathogenic fungi, Beauvaria bessiana, Verticelium lecanii, and Metarhizium anisopliae in in vitro

From: Evaluation of the entomopathogenic fungi as a non-traditional control of the rice leaf roller, Cnaphalocrocis medinalis (Guenee) (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae) under controlled conditions
