Biocontrol agent

Several strains of Trichoderma have been developed as biocontrol agents against fungal diseases of plants.[2] The various mechanisms include antibiosis, parasitism, inducing host-plant resistance, and competition. Most biocontrol agents are from the species T. harzianum and T. hamatum. The biocontrol agent generally grows in its natural habitat on the root surface, and so affects root disease in particular, but can also be effective against foliar diseases.

I think that this may expalin a few things especially since our department of agriculture loves to build toys such as this one and since it has been released into the environment its causing alot of problems....
