Microbes and plants have a symbiotic relationship, where microbes produce enzymes that feed plants while plants feed microbes with carbon-rich exudates. The enzymes produced are specialized proteins that make nutrients available for plant uptake by breaking down organic material into small enough molecules for plants to absorb through their cell wall. Using beneficial microbes will maximize plant nutrient uptake, development, quality, and yield.
