Evaluating efficacy of two commercial entomopathogenic fungi biopesticides (Lecatech and Mycotal) against cassava Bemisia tabaci whitefly under field conditions

Whiteflies Bemisia tabaci are a threat to cassava production in sub-Saharan Africa as vectors of two major viral diseases (cassava mosaic and cassava brown streak disease). There is need to explore sustainable control options for this pest.
