Aleahmad P.  Ebrahimi L (2022) The role of endophyte fungi in plant disease management. Plant Pathology Science 11(1):100-112.        
  Doi: 10.2982/PPS.11.1.100.
Plant diseases usually cause economic damage and reduce growth and crop yield.  Treatment of plant diseases with chemical toxins can result in environmental side effects, the emergence of resistance in pathogens, and loss of beneficial soil microorganisms, so the search for alternative methods such as identification and use of antagonistic microorganisms for disease treatment has been considered by researchers. A set of endophyte fungi that grow without damage or symptoms in host plant tissues and are known to be biological control agents of some plant diseases. Endophyte fungi with different mechanisms such as the production of antibiotic metabolites, competition, induction of resistance, and hyperparasitism of the pathogen weaken or eliminate the pathogens. These fungi can also help increase the growth and resistance of host plants to various stresses by producing antioxidant and antitumor compounds, as well as various growth hormones.
