Locust swarms have ravaged much of Suwathia, resulting in the loss of vital agriculture. A multinational company has recently proposed using metarhizium, a fungus that invades the exoskeleton of the locust, causing a swift death. The government of Suwathia argues that the one means of application of metarhizia-from an airplane-will require a great amount of the fungus, which is difficult to acquire. Given that the locusts propagate rapidly, the government maintains that only a complete annihilation of a locust swarm will have the desired effect.Which of the following, if true, best argues in favor of the multinational company`s plan to drop metarhizium over locust swarms?
【选项】Metarhizium promotes the growth of a strain of bacteria that fosters root development in the crops that the locusts consume.
