Microorganisms is believed to be the causative agent of various problems in human health but with the development of microbiological techniques these problems could be prevented to some extent by researchers who have successfully developed pathways for the use of the microorganisms in ways beneficial for the society. Microorganisms and their microbial based products play an important role in enhancing plant growth and crop yield by several mechanisms such as antibiosis and plant-microbe interaction thereby increasing the demand in market and using microorganism as a biological control in agriculture. The increases in world population demands sustainable agricultural production but however over exploitation of crops lead to the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides resulting to a human health hazard. Microorganisms can be classified into two categories- some are beneficial microorganism that can improve agricultural production and some are negative microorganisms since they induce severe health problems.
