The invention relates to the microbiological industry, and can be used to protect plants from pests and diseases.

Protection of agricultural plants, vegetables, grain and fruit crops from diseases and pests is a serious economic problem. Annual losses to agriculture amount to several billion rubles (Kandybin NV, Patyk TI, Yermolov VP, Patyk V.F. Microbiocidal insect and its dominant Bacillus thuringiensis. Saint-Petersburg, Pushkin, 2009, 245 S.).

Among the most dangerous pests are beetles, in particular the Colorado potato beetle, which attacks potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes. The population of the bushes solanaceous crops in different years can reach 50-70%, and yield losses of 25-35%. To control Colorado potato beetle commonly used chemical insecticides that do not have a selective action. They can accumulate in the environment and thereby degrade the environment. On the basis of a group of bacteria Thuringiensis created a number of insecticidal biologics: Production, Methoxylation, Dendrobatidis, Colorado, but they do not cover the whole group mass of harmful species of coleopterous insects.

On the basis of strain BtH10No. 25 technology for producing new insecticidal biological product.

Example of getting a drug on the basis of strain BtH10No. 25.

First, in flasks (1 l) cooked groupresearch nutrient medium of the following composition, %: soy flour - 2,5; corn starch to 2.5; yeast - 0.5; K2HPO4to 0.3; MgSO4×7H2O - 0,02; CaCl2×2H2O - 0,01; rest (100) - water. Prior to sterilization pH is between 7.4 and 7.8.

The prepared environment is poured into the Erlenmeyer flask 40-50 ml and sterilized in an autoclave at a temperature of +(120-125°C. for 30 minutes. After sterilization, the pH of 6.8 to 7.2. Sterile nutrient medium is cooled to 30-35°C and seeded with a culture of the strain of the test tubes in a test tube culture on beveled RA contribute 5-8 ml of sterile water or saline solution. This is e a pipette gently rubbed culture, shaken until a homogeneous suspension and make the bulb of 0.2-0.5 ml of Culture grown in flasks on a shaker at 220-250 rpm and a temperature of 28-30°C for 56-72 hours until rash spores and crystal formation endotoxins (check is carried mikroskopirovanii). Grown in flasks culture fluid of strain BtH10No. 25 is used for planting medium in fermenters.

For growing the culture in the fermenter can be used any groupresearch nutrient medium, preferably of the same composition that was used to obtain the culture liquid in the Erlenmeyer flasks (composition specified above). In the fermenter any container filled with 50% water, were first dissolved salts, then brewed the estimated amount of corn starch at 80-85°C., cooled to 40°C, was added the calculated amount of soy flour, fodder yeast and mixed with water for 20 minutes. Drove pH to 8.0 using 40% sodium hydroxide (caustic soda). Then culture medium was heated to 80-85°C, kept the temperature for 30 minutes and sterilized at 1 ATM for 1 hour, then cooled to a temperature of 32-35°C. Prior to depositing the seed material from the fermenter took the test environment for the control of sterility. When viewed under the microscope field of view should not be the availability of microorganism is.

After that, in a nutrient medium in the fermenter was made 1-2% of the culture fluid from the Erlenmeyer flasks.

The process of growing the culture in the fermenter was conducted at 28-30°C With continuous stirring environment by means of stirrers, the pressure in the fermenter 0.2-0.4 atmospheres and appropriate aeration:

with 0-3 hour - only mixing;

from 3-12 hours - 0.5 V air/V environments/min;

with 12-42 h - 1,0 V air/V environments/min;

with 42 hour before the end of the fermentation - 0.5 V air/V environment/min

That is, the fermentation process was performed under conditions of high aeration and finished when reaching the content of free spores and endotoxin crystals up to 80-90% of the total number of inclusions at a ratio of 1:1. The titer of spores was determined by generally accepted by the serial dilution method. At the same titer dispute strain BtH10No. 25 received in the preparation of at least (3,8-4,0)·109spores/ml in the absence of extraneous microflora and virulent phage.

Thus was obtained Biopreparat-based strain BtH10No. 25, which represents a fluid, easily diluted with water to the desired working concentration, easy to use serial spraying equipment. The technology of its production does not require high energy consumption required for drying when receiving drugs dry form.

Performed laboratory tests of insecticides effectively the tee of the drug on the basis of strain BtH 10No. 25 with respect to mass insect phytophagous crops.

Laboratory determination of insecticidal activity of the drug on the basis of strain BtH10No. 25 was carried out on larvae of the Colorado potato beetle in the 2nd age. While forage (leaves of potato) was treated with an aqueous suspension of strain at concentrations of 5, 1 and 0.2%. In each variant of the experiment was planted on 25 Colorado potato beetle larvae of the 2nd age (in quadruplicate). For comparison in the experiments under the same conditions used drug on the basis of the strain-prototype BtH10No. 109 (Basical) and BtH1800 (Methoxylation liquid without drying), at the same concentrations. The account of the death of the larvae of the Colorado potato beetle was performed on day 7.

The content of exotoxin in the drug was determined on the larvae of house flies by the following method.

Drug-based strain BtH10No. 25 in 20 ml were centrifuged for 15 min at 8000 rpm the resulting centrate autoclaved at a pressure of 0.1 MPa and a temperature of 105°C for 20 minutes Then was prepared by dilution of the drug: 1:2; 1:4; 1:8; 1:16; 1:32, which corresponds to a concentration of 50; 25; 12,5; 6,25; 3,125 µl/g of feed. Each concentration was tested in four parallel definitions.

For testing in a glass jar with a capacity of 200 ml was made: 2 ml of the drug on the basis of strain BtH10No. 25 of the respective cultivation; 11 ml of 2.5%aq is th suspension of milk powder; 7 g of sterilized wheat bran. In the control experiment in banks instead of the dissolved drug was introduced 2 ml of sterile water. Feed with appropriate dilutions of the drug in each pot was thoroughly mixed and placed there by 25 larvae of house flies, holes cans tied-calico and kept in a thermostat at a temperature (28±1)°C and relative humidity of 70-85%. On the 5th day was chosen puparia and left in the same conditions until the flies.

For comparison in the experiments under the same conditions used drug on the basis of the strain-prototype BtH10No. 109 (Basical) and BtH1800 (Methoxylation liquid without drying), at the same concentrations.

The exotoxin activity was assessed by the number of deaths on day 8 of the flies-adjusted mortality in the control was determined by the formula:

X=(K-B)/A×100, where

K - the number of flies coming in control;

In the number of flies coming into the experience.

According to the results of the above laboratory experiments for each case was determined indicator LC50the dose of the drug (in %, in ál/g of feed, kg, ml, etc)that causes 50% death of the insects.

The value of LC50was calculated by the formula Cerberus (see, for example, the monograph "the ECOLOGY of BACILLUS THURINGIENSIS" authors Vratya, TI, Patyk, Kiev, ed. PGAA, 2007, 217 pages):

Lg LC50=lgm-δ(ΣL1-0,5),

where Cm- the maximum is th of the tested concentrations;

σ is the logarithm of the relationship of each previous concentration subsequent to (the logarithm of the ratio of dilution);

ΣL1- the sum of the relations of the number of insects that have died from this concentration, the total number of insects that were exposed to this concentration.

The results of insecticidal activity and education of exotoxin (values LC50)obtained in the above experiments, preparations based on strain BtH10No. 25, strain-prototype BtH10No. 109 (Basical) and analogue BtH1800 (Methoxylation liquid without drying), are presented in table 1.
