Sample Publication on Locust Control by Pro. Yuxian Xia
Metarhizium anisopliae 421 is a Fungal Pesticide
1.Full name: Metarhizium anisopliae CQMa421
2.Abbreviation: Ma421
3.After ten years of intensive research, Professor Yuxian Xia and his team from Chongqing University, screened and cultivated this Metarhizium anisopliae from thousands of specimens.
4.The dispersible oil suspension of Metarhizium has been used and controled locust in more than 150,000 hectares in China, playing a key role in locust control and results in no locust outbreaks in China for more than 10 years.
5.The strain has better broad spectrum, better stability, stronger resistance, and is a new generation of more efficient fungal pesticide.
6.The strain, CGMCC4609,  is now preserved by the Institute of Microbiology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
Features of CQMa421 
Effects of CQMa421 on Locust Control (State Registration Experiments)
The control experiment of Metarhizium anisopliae 421 on locust was mainly concentrated in Ningxia, Xinjiang and Hebei. 421 and the chemical pesticide were selected to compare in the field plot experiments. The results showed that there was no significant difference between the 421 and the chemical pesticide, and the effect of 421 was over 60% after 14 days. Compared with the chemical control, the efficacy of the 421 is significantly better than that of the control pesticide, which fully proves that the biological pesticide has a good pest population control effect and can completely or partially replace the chemical pesticide in the field.
Application of CQMa421 Dispersible Oil Suspension
1.Manual sprayer
60-80 ml/mu, two times dilution method is applied, dilute 30-45 litres of water, then spray on damaged parts and pest inhabiting parts.
2.Mechanical (helicopter) spray    
60-80 ml/mu, two times dilution method is applied, dilute 45-60 litres of water, then spray on damaged parts and pest inhabiting parts.
3.Drone (UAV: ultra low capacity) spray
60-80 ml/mu, two times dilution method is applied, dilute 1-1.5 litres of water, then spray 2-3 meters above crops.
***For locust control, the dosage is 1 litre/hectare.
