Influence of Biotic factor on crop production include;

  • Pest – They feed on part /whole plant reducing the yields
  • Parasites – Transmit diseases to livestock / suck blood leading to anaemia
  • Decomposers – Break down organ matter releasing nutrients to plant
  • Pathogens – Transmit diseases to crops and livestock
  • Predators – They kill other animals/some eat pest reducing population.
  • Pollinators – transfer pollen grains from plant to plant causing pollination and fertilization.
  • Nitrogen fixing bacteria – convert atmospheric nitrogen to nitrate –making it available to plant.
