Thus, BCA strains must tolerate a wide range of climatic (fluctuating temperatures, humidity, UV light), edaphic (soil types) and biotic (antagonists) factors. To overcome this problem, genetic engineering and other molecular tools can offer a new possibility for improving the selection and characterization of bio-control agents. Various methods that can contribute to increasing the efficacy of bio-agents include mutation or protoplasm fusion utilizing poly ethylene glycol. 5 Virulence and efﬁcacy One major criticism of BCAs is that they act slowly and often lose their virulence, therefore, they give only limited protection to crops.
S. Gupta1 , S. K. Basu2 , and K. 1 Introduction Bourne (1976) at the National Conference on Food Losses defined postharvest food loss as that weight of wholesome edible product (exclusive of moisture content) that is normally consumed by humans and that has been separated from the medium and site of its immediate growth or production by deliberate human action with the intention of using it for human feeding but which, for any reason, fails to be consumed by humans. In recent years there has been an increasing demand for food safety at the global level.
