Acting by its base i.e active ingredients, they compete with chemicals with their effectiveness and their use promotes sustainable management and hence contribute towards sustainable agriculture. This review discusses the current status of knowledge on biofungicides including their sources, production, formulation, commercialization , role in sustainable agriculture and their limitations .
