Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) is a naturally-occurring, spore-forming, soil-dwelling bacterium which is used as biological
pesticide. BT occurs naturally in the gut of caterpillars, on leaf surfaces, aquatic environments, animal feces, insect-
rich environments, flour mills and grain-storage facilities. BT experiences sporulation when their are limited resources.
During sporulation, many BT strains produce crystal proteins (proteinaceous inclusions), called endotoxins that have been
known for decades to display insecticidal action against some insect groups.
The endospores are released through sporulation upon contact with the insect after spraying. This process includes
ingestion of the Crystal protein by a vulnerable insect, solubilization, and processing from a protoxin to an activated
toxin core in the insect's digestive fluid. This results in cell parallysis and eventually death of the insect. Time taken
for the occurrence of death is dependent on the presence of specific receptor sites on the insect's gut wall.This has led
to their use as insecticides and more recently to genetically modified crops using BT genes, such as BT corn.
Vegetables (Tomato, Cabbage, Cauliflower), Cotton, Pulses, Paddy, Chilli, Okra etc
Bacillus thuringiensis is plant and environment compatible. It can be mixed with bio-fungicide; Bio-insecticide and bio-
fertilizer don’t mix with chemical fertilizers.
