ABSTRACT

Abstract: Penicillium sp. (order Eurotiales, class Eurotiomycetes, family Trichocomaceae) is one of the entomopathogenic fungi that have the potential to be developed as biological control agent of pests.The study aims to determine the viability and spora production of Entomopathogenic fungi Penicillium sp. Experiments was conducted in Pests Identification and Biological Control laboratory, Department of Plant Pest and Disease, Faculty of Agriculture, Hasanuddin University. The fungus Penicillium sp. cultured in a liquid medium and then added chitin as treatment and others without chitin., The spora viability of fungi was observed on 12th and 24th hours, while spora production on 3nd, 6th, 9th and 12th days after application.The results showed that conidial viability of the fungus Penicillium sp. at 24 hours after application was higher if the medium given chitin than without chitin. The conidial production was higher if given chitin than without chitin. It was highest on 12th day, reached 143.4 x 106 conidia/ml if media given chitin and on 6th day if without chitin (0.50 x 106 conidia/ml).
