The symbiotic microbes harboring the plant growth-promoting attributes have immense capability to enhance crop productivity together with minimizing the application of hazardous agrochemicals. This chapter will integrate the role of symbiotic microbes from different plants in improving crop productivity, with emphasis on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, endophytic fungi, and plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria and the positive and negative effects on the interaction between microorganism and plants because of climate change, especially the increase in CO2 concentration and global temperature, as well as the influence of water stress and soil salinization. Climate change is a major contemporary problem, and there is an urgent need to understand the consequences of this process on the interaction of microorganisms and plants, thus aiming at the sustainability of plant production.

Keywords: Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, ectomycorrhizal fungi, endophytic fungi, plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria.
