For intensified productivity, plant-microbe interplays must be taken into consideration for meeting the requirements of sample food. Unfortunately, researchers turn a blind eye to beneficial plant-microbe interactions in breeding strategies even though plant-associated microorganisms satisfy the indispensable functions of the ecosystem for the plants. Microbial inoculants developed through the plant-microbe interactions may prove to be a promising key for viable, nature-friendly agriculture, leading to improved quality of plant products. The overall impact of such plant-microbe interactions can have implications for plant growth and fitness, carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling, and may influence plant community rejoinders to global environmental changes. Quality improvement of the plant products will score in prodigious progress in agriculture. Plant-microbe interactions greatly influence plant health and quality since these micro organisms are able to aid the host plant in dealing with drought, stress conditions, etc. thus,  enhancing the quality of many plant food products would contribute significantly to human nutrition and health.
