In the recent decades the use of entomopathogenic fungi has been increased as bioinsecticide. Since then, studies on its applicability as a crop protection product against various species of arthropods and on their durability and population dynamics of mycosinsicides and target pests have begun to be developed. The Spray Drying process technique enables microencapsulation, a technology capable of increasing product durability as it provides greater protection against factors such as light, oxygen concentration, heat and moisture, preventing evaporation of volatile compounds, and also masking flavors and unpleasant odor. The Spray Drying process can be ensuring a controlled release and allowing the development of high added value products. In this proposal entom.
