An inclusive report of Biocontrol of Soil-Borne Plant Diseases
Author(s): Dr. Firdos Katiar
Abstract: Soil-borne plant diseases are caused by pathogenic microorganisms, such as fungi, bacteria, and viruses, that live in the soil and attack the roots or other parts of the plant. These diseases can cause significant damage to crops, leading to reduced yields and economic losses. Biocontrol is a method of managing plant diseases by using beneficial microorganisms or natural products to suppress or control the pathogenic ones. Biocontrol of soil-borne plant diseases is a management strategy that involves the use of beneficial microorganisms to suppress or control plant pathogens in the soil. Soil-borne plant pathogens such as fungi, bacteria, and nematodes are responsible for causing various diseases in plants, including damping-off, root rot, and wilt. Biocontrol agents (BCAs) are naturally occurring microorganisms that can be used to reduce the impact of soil-borne plant pathogens on crops. BCAs can be bacteria, fungi, or other microorganisms that colonize the roots of plants and protect them from pathogens by several mechanisms. The most commonly used BCAs for the control of soil-borne plant diseases include Trichoderma spp., Bacillus spp., and Pseudomonas spp. These BCAs have been widely studied and have shown promising results in the control of various soil-borne plant pathogens.
