Soil microorganisms, bacteria and fungi interact dynamically with plants, impacting their performance, productivity, quality, and yield. Soil microorganisms represent the best biosensor to explain the differences in crop production, with the microbiome emerging as key to the improvement of farming management practices. Understanding how plant-soil interactions directly affect crop production is only possible with a prior understanding of soil microorganisms.
