OUR COMPANY STORY
Ag Spectrum Company was founded in 1984 by six men who were raised on family farms. These men recognized the importance of producing crops in the most cost-efficient way possible and wanted to make a difference in the agricultural industry. They based their company on the principles of basic science which provides understanding of what the plants’ nutritional needs are at different stages of development. These needs were used to design the Maximum Farming System®.
With their farming backgrounds, Ag Spectrum’s directors understand the decisions and sacrifices farmers make every day. Some of them continue to farm and use Ag Spectrum products and methodologies in their own fields, gaining firsthand knowledge into what works and what does not. Combined with ongoing research and more than 100 representatives in 20 states, the company is committed to discover practical ways to develop better fields, produce better yields, and become better farmers. Their comprehensive systems approach helps the American farmer.
AG SPECTRUM PROVIDES LEADERSHIP AND EDUCATION TO INSPIRE PROGRESS IN AMERICAN AGRICULTURE.
Our mission is to make available to growers research-proven technologies that allow them to produce crops in the most cost-efficient manner possible.
Ag Spectrum is dedicated to understanding the basic truths of science, investing in ongoing agronomic research, and providing leadership and education direct to the grower to inspire progress in American agriculture. Progress in agriculture is achieved by maximizing returns on every investment, where no nutrient, no pest management product, no water, and no effort goes to waste. We believe in educating growers with a complete systems approach because we have the opportunity and responsibility to leave things better than we found them.
The foundation of Ag Spectrum’s approach is rooted in basic science and research. The fundamental beliefs are based upon proven science that depict how a plant grows, the stresses it encounters, and ways to maximize energy production in the plant and beyond. Ag Spectrum invests in ongoing, non-biased, fundamental research that advances science to benefit agriculture. These researchers are an extension of the Ag Spectrum network.
At Ag Spectrum we value:
- The basic truths of science.
- Educating growers about sustainable and productive agronomic practices. We encourage strategic decision making based on facts rather than emotion.
- A systematic approach to crop production.
- Honesty and integrity in all that we do.
- Partnerships with local, independent Associates to deliver the Maximum Farming System.
- Leadership and support for our Independent Associate Network.
- Doing what is right for the long term, even if that means walking away from a sale.

NEW SALES MARKETING TEAM DISTRICT MANAGER
Erik Larson has joined the Sales Marketing Team as District Manager effective May 1, 2020. He provides leadership and support for associates in the marketplace. When discussing what attracted him to the company, Erik said he was impressed with Ag Spectrum’s focus on the success of growers through science and data to formulate a system to improve a farmer’s operation instead of just trying to sell them a product. He said, “This company’s goals are a farmer’s success, not a number.”
