After previously showing rhizobacteria Pseudomonas fluorescence and foliar bio-fertilizer mixture as a suitable practice in improving maize and soybean crops development and dry biomass, this study thus embark on predicting the above-mentioned plants dry biomass feature through their yield and growth parameters by assessing P. fluorescence activities on foliar bio-fertilizer in an arid agro-climate. For this purpose, several scripts and functions from our previous computational statistic pipeline, developed in R programming environment were partially used for statistical survey. Several multiple linear regression models have been achieved aimed at understanding the links between maize and soybean crops (i) dry biomass, (ii) yield and (iii) growth features as well as highlights the synergic roles of rhizobacteria microorganisms and foliar bio-fertilizer on that relationship. Findings, revealed as expected, a significant difference in term of crops development between plants from seeds without treatment and those from seeds under (i) rhizobacteria, (ii) rhizobacteri + foliar bio-fertilizer mixture and (iii) foliar bio-fertilizer treatments (p<0.05). Also, yield parameters exhibited a substantial variability reacting to rhizobacteria microorganism as well as to rhizobacteria microorganism + foliar bio-fertilizer mixture as opposed to growth features. Hence, the present results clearly showed significant difference between rhizobacteria microorganism and foliar bio-fertilizer activities impacting both maize and soybean crops yield and growth features (p<0.05). Indeed, findings suggested a selective impact of rhizobacteria microorganisms (P. fluorescence) on processed plants yield features. The same findings exhibited P. fluorescence and foliar bio-fertilizer mixture, as adjusting the synergy between both processed crops growth and yield parameters by improving dry biomass feature (p= 0.17). Finally, this study emphasized rhizobacteria microorganism’s activities on foliar bio-fertilizer in an arid agro-climate low fertile soil as a weighty promoter improving maize and soybean crops dry biomass by normalizing the relationship concerning growth and yield features.
