Microbial inoculation of seed for improved crop.
These nematodes burrow into the grub and proceed with their life cycle, reproducing and ultimately killing their host (the grub), at which time more nematodes are released into the soil. For maximum effectiveness, nematodes are applied when the grubs are small (about 2 weeks after the beetles appear, late June to early July in the Midwest) but can be applied until frost.
Following are the 10 fields in which microorganisms are used in hundreds of ways. 1) Microorganisms in food Microorganisms are used in the production of fermented food and beverages. E.g. Yeast, Penicillium, Lactobacillus. 2) Microorganisms in Med.
Entomopathogenic nematodes of the Delanus, Neoaplecantana, Tetradonema, and Heterorhabditis have been found to control a wide range of insect pests. The success of these nematodes lies in the fact that most plant insect pests spend a part of their life cycle in soil. WEED CONTROL. Biological control of weeds has been studied for over 100 years.
Cowpea curculio is a small weevil that causes blister-like spots on the surface of the pod. These spots result from adults puncturing the pod to feed on or to lay eggs. Punctures from feeding result in small malformed peas, and the results of egg laying are many legless grubs that destroy developing peas.

New technologies and chemicals for control of plant pathogenic nematodes (97-100) and Heterakis gallinarum: in Columba livia: Aonchoteca sp., Tetrameres ssipina, Synhimantus (Dispharynx) spiralis and Ascaridia columbae, and in Fulica atra, Capillaria sp. were found and in Larus cachinnans, Cosmocephalus sp.
Pests, weeds and diseases (pests) pose serious risk for primary producers as they can impact on market access and agricultural production. Pest control is best achieved with an Integrated Pest Management plan using a range of biological, chemical, mechanical, physical or cultural control methods. To reduce the impacts of pests, the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.
