Formulation and application methods are often of paramount importance in biological control (Papavizas and Lumsden, 1980; Papavizas and Lewis, 1983; Papavizas et al .. 1984). Accordingly several techniques viz, antagonist in liquid (Kerr, 1980), organic matter (Wells et al., 1972), as seed treatment (Harmen et al., 1980; Windel, 1981; Fravel et al., 1985) and in vermiculite or in clay such as pyrax (Fravel et al., 1983) have been tested.
