Most of the waste generated from agriculture and other industries is a great source of soil and water pollution. The increase in agriculture waste across the globe is of great concern because of various environmental and economic issues. However, genetic engineering and microbial processing development have helped extract various valuable products from this waste. Microbes have the natural potential to degrade this organic waste. This chapter highlights the opportunities to bio-valorize agricultural waste through microbes and produces valuable enzymes, biofuels and bioactive compounds. This chapter highlights how microbes may decrease the ever-increasing waste to produce various valuable products for industrial use.

Keywords: Agricultural waste, Economic, Microbes, Valuable Products
