The optimal time of harvest of nucleopolyhedrovirus (NPV) infected Spodoptera litura (Fabricius) under in vivo mass production system was investigated. Yield of virus from living and dead larvae infected previously in fifth instar larvae reared on artificial diet, at the doses 3932.4, 1966.2 and 393.24 OB/mm2 and harvested at 5, 6, 7 and 8 days after inoculation was recorded. A maxi- mum yield of 5.57 × 109 OB/larva was obtained at the inoculum dose of 1966.2 OB/mm2, when exclusive har- vest of cadaver was done. The study revealed that a dose of 1966.2 OB/mm2 and exclusive harvest of cadavers were the most important parameters for the mass produc- tion of NPV.
