The present investigation entitled: “evaluation of microbials and botanicals against defoliators of soybean” was conducted during Kharif season of 2016 at Experimental Farm of Department of Entomology, Post Graduate Institute, Dr. Panjabrao Deshmukh Krishi Vidyapeeth, Akola. Treatments reveled that Beauveria bassiana and Nomuraea rileyi each @ 7.5 g / L and neem seed extract 5 % were most effective in reducing the population of green semilooper and tobacco leaf eating caterpillar as well as registered highest yield of soybean. Dashparni extract 12.5 ml / l was least effective in reducing the semilooper population and higher yield of soybean. Further, this treatment was not effective against Spodoptera litura. The neem seed extract 5 % was economically most effective treatment against soybean defoliators followed by N. rileyi @7.5 g/l.

Key word: Effect of Microbials and Botanical, Beauveria bassiana and Nomuraea rileyi, Dashparni extract, NSKE @ 5%soyabean (Glycine max (L.) Merril).
