Spodoptera litura NPV

Spodoptera litura is a serious pest to vegetables such as broccoli, beans, cabbage, and dasheen.

Spodoptera litura nucleopolyhedrovirus (SpliNPV) has been studied extensively to determine its infectivity levels, mass production potential, and biosafety towards bees, fish, silkworm, mice, rabbits, and monkeys.

Since 1997, SpliNPV has been produced as a commercialized insecticide via continuous rearing of the host larvae on an artificial diet.
