Verticoz- P is a biopesticide works as bio-insecticide is prepared by concept of Biotechnology. Verticoz – P is the made from the fungus Verticillium lecanii. The spores of Verticillium lecanii get attached to the cuticle of the insects on contact.
Verticoz – P gains entry through the cuticle by enzymes. It infects insects by producing hyphae from germinating spores that penetrate the insect integument.
Verticoz – P then destroys the internal body contents resulting in the mortality of insects, It eventually grows through the insect cuticle and sporulates on the body of the insects to produce cyclosipeptide toxin called Bassianolide, which kills the insect in 4-6 days.
