While difficult to prove directly, much indirect evidence suggests that competition between pathogens and non-pathogens for nutrient resources is important for limiting disease incidence and severity. that can limit subsequent infections, and some hyperparasites of plant pathogens, e.g. Integration of soil solarization with chemical, biological, and cultural control for the management of soilborne disease of vegetables. Parasitoids are species whose immature stage develops on or within a single insect host, ultimately killing the host. (2004), Peroxidase, chitinase and β-1,3-glucanase. Phytopathology 95:306-315.

Most of the commercial production of biological control agents is handled by relatively small companies, such as Agraquest, BioWorks, Novozymes, Prophyta, Kemira Agro.

Published definitions of biocontrol differ depending on the target of suppression; number, type and source of biological agents; and the degree and timing of human intervention. In contrast, general suppression is more frequently invoked to explain the reduced incidence or severity of plant diseases because the activities of multiple organisms can contribute to a reduction in disease pressure. 42:311-338. doi:10.1016/j.biocontrol.2003.08.001, Costa FG, Zucchi TD, de Melo IS (2013) Biological control of phytopathogenic fungi by endophytic actinomycetes isolated from maize (Zea mays L.)

The types of interactions were referred to as mutualism, protocooperation, commensalism, neutralism, competition, amensalism, parasitism, and predation. Kloepper, J. W., Leong, J., Teintze, M., and Schroth, M. N. 1980. Many of the microbes isolated and classified as BCAs can be considered facultative mutualists involved in protocooperation, because survival rarely depends on any specific host and disease suppression will vary depending on the prevailing environmental conditions. Current Microbiol. Biological control is the control of disease by the application of biological agents to a host animal or plant that prevents the development of disease by a pathogen. Further down the spectrum, commensalism is a symbiotic interaction between two living organisms, where one organism benefits and the other is neither harmed nor benefited. Can previously uncharacterized microbes act as biological control agents? 2004.

In general, soilborne pathogens, such as species of Fusarium and Pythium, that infect through mycelial contact are more susceptible to competition from other soil- and plant-associated microbes than those pathogens that germinate directly on plant surfaces and infect through appressoria and infection pegs. aphid honeydew on leaf surface) and the soil. VAM fungi have been found to reduce the incidence of root-knot nematode (Linderman 1994). hypovirulence of the chestnut blight pathogen) are also needed for control of diseases in forested and rangeland ecosystems where high application rates over larger land areas are not economically-feasible. Soil Biol. 2002); however, the effective quantities are difficult to estimate because of the small quantities produced relative to the other, less toxic, organic compounds present in the phytosphere. 135:325-334.

Most are natural inhabitants of the soil and the environment and are not pathogenic to birds, mammals (including humans), and fish. A natural enemy such as a parasite, predator, or disease organism is introduced into the environment of a pest or, if already present, is encouraged to multiply and become more effective in reducing the number of pest organisms. 63:541-546. Kilic-Ekici, O., and Yuen, G. Y. It depends on (i) the selection pressure exerted by it on populations of plant pathogens and (ii) on the capacity of these pathogens to adapt to the control method.

Australas Plant Pathol 38:183–192, Chernin L, Ismailov Z, Haran S, Chet I (1995) Chitinolytic Enterobacter agglomerans antagonistic to fungal plant pathogens. Antibiotics are microbial toxins that can, at low concentrations, poison or kill other microorganisms. 1992, Fenton et al. Lastly, predation refers to the hunting and killing of one organism by another for consumption and sustenance. Throughout their lifecycle, plants and pathogens interact with a wide variety of organisms. Control 18:235-242. Understanding these mechanisms is crucial to the isolation of effective biocontrol agents and the development of biocontrol strategies for plant diseases. Biological control is the control of disease by the application of biological agents to a host animal or plant that prevents the development of disease by a pathogen. Chisholm, S.

Shanahan, P., O'Sullivan, D. J., Simpson, P., Glennon, J. D., and O'Gara, F. 1992. From the plant’s perspective, biological control can be considered a net positive result arising from a variety of specific and non-specific interactions.
