Microbes are microscopic, single-celled organisms like bacteria and fungi. Although they are often associated with dirt and disease, most microbes are beneficial. For example, microbes keep nature clean by helping break down dead plants and animals into organic matter.
But there are many more natural benefits of microbes, including helping farmers increase yields and protect crops. They can also improve livestock health, growth and feed utilization.
Microbes also increase wastewater treatment efficiency and optimize healthy water quality in aquaculture.
