How does natamycin influence Bacillus amyloliquefaciens?

Bacillus amyloliquefaciens or BGP20 is an antimicrobial agent that is used to prolong the life of some vegetables. However, its effectiveness decreases when faced with the pathogen Ecc. A recent study has shown that the combination of BGP20 and natamycin is very positive, reducing the presence of Ecc by 92.1%. Moreover, natamycin encourages the dispersion of BGP20 and therefore lengthens the food’s shelf life.
