Identification of entomopathogenic nematodes occurring in Tamil Nadu

S Abirami, K Poornima and S Subramanian

A study was taken up to identify entomopathogenic nematodes (EPN) species occurring in Tamilnadu from three districts viz., Erode, Coimbatore and Nilgiris during September to December 2014. One hundred and twenty six soil samples collected from 3 districts of Western Tamil Nadu were analysed for the presence of EPN. The survey revealed the occurrence of EPN in undisturbed lands through the use of standard insect baiting bioassay technique. EPN were recovered in two samples in two of the districts viz., Erode and Coimbatore. First population was identified as Steinernema carpocapsae from Bhavanisagar, Erode and second population was identified as Steinernema abbasi from Anamalais, Coimbatore.
