Plant nutrients are very important for the proper and healthy production of food. Today, the soil management practices are totally dependent on the chemical-based fertilizer, which not only affect the humans and the other organisms but also causes damage to the ecosystem or to the environment. Thus, biofertilizer has been discovered or identified as a better alternative for increasing the productivity of the crop. The inoculation of this type of fertilizer over a field makes the soil fertile and thus makes it suitable for sustainable farming. The discovery of the beneficial microorganisms as biological inoculants has increased the potential of the agriculture sector to grow a good productive crop. Thus, the use of biofertilizers increases the soil fertility, crop production, tolerance to all types of stresses, etc.
