    • Abstract


      Beta-exotoxin produced byBacillus thuringiensis var.thuringiensis grown in the acid hydrolysates of wheat and rice brans caused 95% and 85% mortality respectively ofMeloidogyne sp. as against 72% of β-exotoxin produced on farm yard manure within 7 days. Acid hydrolysate of wheat or rice bran and solid farm yard manure proved to be the best media for growth ofB. thuringiensis var.thuringiensis.
