  • Competitive interactions within soil microbial communities lie at the basis of general soil suppression.
  • The production of inhibitors (interference competition) is a major determinant of general soil suppression.
  • Activity, composition and diversity of microbial communities affect the spectrum of produced inhibitors and, therefore, also general soil suppression.
  • Agricultural management strategies can be developed to stimulate microbial interactions that increase general soil suppression.
