Solution

Microorganisms affecting plant growth:

  1. Microbes play an important role in agriculture.
  2. But sometimes some pathogens are harmful to the plant as they decrease plant growth, crop induction, and resistance to crop control products.

They affect plant growth by:

  1. By decomposing root nodules.
  2. By removing nutrients from the plant.
  3. They impact normal photosynthetic functions.
  4. They can cause plant diseases like chlorosis and necrosis.
  5. They lead to a decrease in nutrient uptake and mobilization.
  6. They also lead to a decrease in the translocation of water and nutrients through the vascular system.
