  1. Legends: DPCS, date of plate culture sporulation; SG, spore germination; LM, larval mortality; SE, standard error; * selected isolates; RSR, relative sporulation rating; BE, biological efficacy. The same letters in the columns (a, b, c, d, e, f, g, and h) showed the mean values without significant difference at p ≤ 0.05
