Most of insect pest are becoming resistant to chemical pesticides due to its indiscriminate and excessive use which also affect the natural enemies of insect pest adversely and disturb the ecosystem. In such condition bio agent play an important and effective role. Verticillium lecanii showed excellent compatibility with existing biological control measure and could be used in combination with several widely used pesticides including fungicides. Therefore, the present study was undertaken to evaluate some bio pesticides for their compatibility with V. lecanii.
