The widespread use of chemicals and pesticides in agricultural crops has drawn criticism from both the scientific community and the general public. This is due to the fact that such practices not only pose environmental and safety risks, but also lead to the emergence of new strains of pests and pathogens. Consequently, there has been a growing demand for organic products that do not rely on chemical fertilizers and pesticides.

This book provides a comprehensive overview of various biopesticides that are used to manage fungi, bacteria, viruses, and nematodes. It covers topics such as the biological control of soil-borne fungi and plant viruses, as well as the applications of bacteria, Rhizobacteria, and plant species.

In addition, the book explores both the traditional aspects of biopesticide management and the latest biotechnological approaches and applications. Given the rapid growth of the biopesticides industry and the increasing use of innovative tools and techniques by researchers, this volume is an invaluable resource for managing diseases in an eco-friendly manner.
