These data represent a meta-analysis testing if Streptomyces biological control agents reduce disease caused by fungal plant pathogens and identify factors that alter biological control efficacy of these bacteria. Meta-data and control and treatment data were compiled from 160 studies representing 44 publications that tested the effect of Streptomyces on diseases caused by fungal plant pathogens of agronomic and horticultural crops. Effect sizes and variances were calculated based on the log-response ratio.
