Abstract:      [Objectives]  The purpose of this paper was to explore the nutritional and environmental conditions for required for the hyphal growth and sporulation of Metarhizium anisopliae JC002, a newly isolated fungal strain with high insecticidal activity to the larvae of Dorysthenes granulosus. [Methods]  Effects of different factors, such as culture medium, carbon sources, nitrogen sources, temperature, pH and UV on hyphal growth and sporulation were tested by single factor tests. [Results]  The results indicate that the optimum formula for growing the JC002 strain was 30 g glucose, 15 g peptone, 200 g potatoes, 20 g agar and 1 000 mL water. Sucrose and NaNO3 were the best carbon and nitrogen source. The most suitable culture temperature was 25℃ and the optimum pH-value was 7.0. UV had no significant impact on the growth rate of the fungus but seriously inhibited its sporulation. [Conclusion]  This study provides scientific basis for both the large-scale culture of the JC002 strain, and also the mass production and effective utilization of conidia of this strain.
