SUMMARYA. new solid medium for culturing Bacillus thuringiensis consists of groundnut cake, 10%; tamarind kernel powder, 1.5% and agar, 0.5%. The quantity of agar in the medium could be decreased from 1.5 to 0.5 % by adding tamarind kernel powder. A spore yield (85 % sporulation) of 3.2 g/l was obtained. Bacterial sporesproduced on the new solid medium were pathogenic to the larvae of the almond moth, Cadru mutellu.
