Emrald Aayushi

Emrald Aayushi is an entamopathogenic fungus commonly called as White muscardine. Emrald Aayushi helps in protecting the stem and fruits from being attacked by insects. The entomopathogen invades the insect body. Fungal conidia attach to the insect cuticle and, after germination, the hyphae penetrate the cuticle and proliferate in the insect's body. High humidity or free water is essential for conidial germination and the infection establishes itself between 24 and 48 hours. The infected insect may live for three to five days after hyphal penetration and die slowly. The conidiophores bearing conidia are produced on cadaver. Emrald Aayushi is insect specific.
