Abstract: This study examines the potential of endophytic insect pathogenic fungi to enhance pepper crop growth. Specifically, the study focuses on the use of Beauveria bassiana Balsamo (Vuillemin) (Hypocreales: Cordycipitaceae), an insect pathogenic and endophytic fungus isolated from target insects that has been shown to promote plant growth and protect against parasites (Canassa, 2019). The aim of this research is to investigate the effects of using this fungus as an endophytic treatment on the growth of pepper plants. This study is important as the use of this innovative technique has the potential to serve as an economic strategy for improving plant growth without the need for added nutrients (Tall and Meyling, 2018). This biological treatment differs from systematic human intervention, as Beauveria bassiana spends its life cycle within or between cells forming colonies in healthy tissues of host plants, typically without causing obvious disease symptoms (Wilson, 1995).
