Abstract:
The investigations on bio-efficacy of entomopathogenic nematode, Heterorhabditis indica against Spodoptera litura (Fabricius) was carried out at Biocontrol Research Laboratory, Department of Entomology, Junagadh Agricultural University, Junagadh during 2014-15. Bio-efficacy of H. indica against S. litura discovered that the larval mortality of S. litura directly proportional to dose of infective juvenile and time of exposure.
