Abstract

We mostly know microorganisms by their negative impact that they are disease causing agents. But when we turn towards their positive impact that they also have an important impact on agriculture production by helping plants in their growth. Microorganisms have been an integral part of soil since ever earth formed. They have the capability to turn soil into waste land and waste land into productive soil. They increase soil fertility by incorporating air, minerals and nitrogenous compounds. They contribute in increasing plant growth by providing essential elements, minerals that plants cannot utilize by their Owen. Microorganisms decompose organic matter to simpler form that can be easily uptake by plants.

Abbreviations: Microorganisms; Bacteria; Fertility; Mineralization
