Evaluation Of Antibacterial Potential Of Botanicals Against Silkworm Bacterial Pathogen (Bacillus thuringinesis)

Madhusudhan, KN*, Poojanag, N., Moorthy, SM., Mary-Josepha, AV., Sivaprasad, V.
Bacterial disease caused by Bacillus thuringinesis is becoming the major constrains for the mulberry silkworm (Bombyx mori L.) production. In the current scenario, plant based control strategies are gaining importance for management of bacterial pathogens. In order to identify the suitable plant based control strategies, different plant extracts (botanicals) were screened for their antibacterial potential against silkworm infecting bacterial pathogen. The result of the present study confirms the presence of antimicrobial substances in the plant extracts and they exhibited the inhibitory action against bacterial pathogen. Based on the results of current project study, neem extract can be used as potent antibiotic for the management of bacterial disease of silkworm.
