In recent years, the extensive use of organophosphorus pesticides, especially the unreasonable use, has brought great
safety risks to the environment. Organic phosphorus pollution has become a hotspot, and there are a large number of
microorganisms in the soil and water body that can degrade organophosphorus pesticides. The extensive degradation
performance of pesticides is applied to a variety of pollution remediation practices. This paper summarizes the
current situation of organophosphorus pesticide use and pesticide residues, the species of organophosphorus pesticide
degrading bacteria and its separation and screening and degradation of pesticide characteristics of the research
