Biological control consists in adopting sustainable practices through beneficial organisms in agricultural production systems.
Beneficial organisms may contribute to biological nitrogen fixation, plant growth promotion, abiotic stress reduction, and pest and disease control.
Whenever there is an imbalance, pathogenic organisms proliferate and cause damages to crops. Biological control can reverse such a scenario, reducing losses in productivity, since the reintroduction of beneficial organisms causes the soil microbiota and plants to rebalance.
The adoption of biological control allows beneficial microorganisms to dominate rhizosphere. While competing for food and space, they produce substances (e.g. enzymes) that promote root growth and consequently increases productivity.
