Abstract

ROBL, Diogo et al. Spore production in Paecilomyces lilacinus (Thom.) samson strains on agro-industrial residues. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2009, vol.40, n.2, pp. 296-300. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822009000200016.

Paecilomyces lilacinus has potential for pests control. We aimed to analyze mycelial growth and spore production in P. lilacinus strains in several agro-industrial residues and commercial media. This study suggests alternative nutrient sources for fungi production and that the biotechnological potential of agro-industrial refuses could be employed in byproducts development.

Keywords : biological control; mycelial growth; nematophagous fungus.
