Figure 1:

Rainfall (mm), temperature maximum (Max °C) and minimum (Min °C) of the study area during 2017 and 2018.

Figure 2:

The interactive response of farmyard manure (FYM) and humic acid (HA) for plant height of maize over two years. The vertical bars are standard error of means. 

Figure 3:

The interactive response of beneficial microbes (BM) and humic acid (HA) for ear length of maize over two years. The vertical bars are standard error of means.

Figure 4:

Correlation matrix of soil nitrogen status i.e. min-N (mineral nitrogen) and TN (total nitrogen) with maize growth parameters i.e. GY (grain yield), PM (plants m-2), LAI (Leaf are index), LA (Leaf area), LP (leaves plant-1), EL (ear length), and PH (Plant height) averaged over two years data of all treatments. The crossed ellipse represents non-significant (P ≤0.0) correlations, and thinner size ellipses have strong correlations.
