The use of pesticides in agricultural soil is very critical in protecting the crops of farmers’ investment. The pesticide provides sure cover from the damage of the pests and insects. But the excessive use of the pesticides is also harmful for the environment due to its long term persistency in soil and slow or less degradation. This review is focused on the persistency of carbofuran in soil and the degradation of carbofuran-7-phenol by the action various micro organism on it, which are naturally present in the soil. Various fungi and bacterial species are found in soil which has a powerful impact on the degradation of carbofuran at ring structure. Such microbial strain degrades carbofuran by the hydrolysis at the furanyl ring.
