Arthropods are considered Farmer's Friends because they perform an important part in the long-term development of soil. The arthropod community characterizes soil quality and aids in bio-monitoring fertility for efficient land use. The current article presented a review of soil health with respect to diverse arthropod communities that are available. The number and diversity of organisms in the soil will reflect the human impact on the ecosystem and environment. The research on distinct arthropod groupings in the soil also reveals whether the arthropod community's merits may be used as a monitoring method. The lack of a basic understanding of variety and abundance patterns highlights prospects for further research in the agricultural and non-agricultural systems, as increased crop output necessitates improved soil quality, which is currently of global interest. Arthropod abundance and diversity, in particular, reflect the health of the soil and have evolved into a cost-effective component of the agro-natural system.
