Biocontrols for plant pathogens include organism that consume, parasitize, or are antagonistic to the pathogenic organisms.

Biocontrols that consume pathogens are generally soil organisms that use the pathogen as a nutrient source.

Parasites include fungi and bacteria that are pathogens of the pathogen.

Antagonistic organisms inhibit the pathogen by interfering with their biology.
