Bacillus thuringiensis Berliner and Some Insecticides against the Diamond-Back Moth, Plutella xylostella (L.) on Cauliflower


In field trials on the control of the diamond-back moth, Plutella xylostella on cauliflower, Bacillus thuringiensis (BactospeineR) gave better control of the pest than all the chemical insecticides tested. Its combination with endosulfan, fenvalerate or diflubenzuron did not improve the efficacy of the pathogen. Yield was significantly higher in B.t. - treated plots in both the trials.
