Costs to produce 1 kg of the effective Bacillus sphaericus spores: To calculate the cost to produce 1 kg of Bacillus sphaericus spores one should take in consideration: * MBS sporulation medium used for spores culture (22) * Required labor work to assembly and maintain the axenic process * Sterilization and energy requirements * Production yield of each batch (grams of cell dry weight produced per L) Considering the following, one can calculate: * Production scale of 1 [m.
