Abstract

The insect pest complex in U.S. pulse crops is almost an “orphan” in terms of developed microbial control agents that the grower can use. There are almost no registered microbial pest control agents (MPCA) for the different pulse pests. In some cases, a microbial is registered for use against specific pests, e.g., grasshoppers, but not in pulse crops. In most cases, best-use practices for any of the microbials are not defined for pulses. Thus, there are ample research opportunities in this area. This review discusses what is actually or potentially available to manage each of the pulse crop pests and identifies research needs to make microbial control measures a reality.
