Phosphorous (P) is one of the most growth-regulating macronutrients in plants. P is an important mineral element for plant growth and is always required in large quantities. P deficiency in plants causes a reduction in yield and growth. To overcome the P deficiency, Plants modify their root structure (phenotypically) as they play a vital role in enhancing the availability of phosphate in the soil. Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is an essential cereal crop that offers sufficient nutritious calories for humans and animals.  In this review, we discuss the mechanism of phosphorus, how phosphorus affects the growth of wheat and the absorption method of phosphorus from organic and inorganic sources within the soil. In this review, we also discuss the microorganisms present in organic and inorganic soil involved in phosphate solubilization. This study becomes a valuable means to wheat growers and researchers for sustainable and higher wheat production by improving phosphorus use efficiency in low input agriculture.
