Table 2 Percentages of egg inhibition of root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita, as influenced by three spore concentrations from Beauveria bassiana, Metarhiziam aniisopliae, and Paecilomyces lilacinus after 24, 48, 72, and 96 h exposure

From: Evaluation of the fungal activity of Beauveria bassiana, Metarhizium anisopliae and Paecilomyces lilacinus as biocontrol agents against root-knot nematode, Meloidogyne incognita on cowpea
