Article
The paper aimed to investigate the influence of UV radiation on the conidia germination and vegetative growth of the fungal strains Beauveria bassiana CNMN-FE-01 and Cordyceps fumosorosea CNMN-FE-02, potential biological control agents of weevils. It was established that UV-B radiation (λ = 312 nm) significantly reduces the viability of conidia, th...
