Abstract
The intensity of motility of Bacillus thuringiensis was used to determine t he optimal culture time of the inoculum being used for thuringiensin produc tion. Thuringiensin production with an inoculum taken at its maximum motili ty was about 3 times higher than that with an inoculum taken in the late ex ponential phase.
