It may seem simple to apply the right product at the right time, but not all products are created equal. Research from Davis's Dr. Patrick Brown, University of California, and his research team discovered the products in the Maximum Farming System outperformed the control. While some foliar products are just paint on a leaf, the Maximum Farming System products are formulated to be absorbed by the plant and stimulate chemical, physical, and biological processes. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming ...

Extreme focus on getting the right product applied at the right time is critical to maximizing a plant's growth and ultimately results in increased yields and improved quality. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
The best way for a farmer to minimize exposure to significant yield loss is to have a recent and uniform cold germination test on each seed lot. This allows for an informed decision, as well as a basis for decisions on planting dates. https://maximumfarming.com/the-case-for-cold-germ-seed-testing/ #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming

The Maximum Farming System addresses the plant's needs first by identifying the nutrients that are necessary, what time in the growth cycle they should be applied, and in what form they should be delivered to optimize absorption/uptake and reduce leaching and runoff. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
To avoid inconsistencies in future years, take notes from your root digs. Ensure soil conditions are optimal for planting, avoid "mudding in" the crop, and ensure you have proper down pressure on your planter and closing wheels are correct for your soils. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
Support is the culture of our company.
Random digs into the row before emergence show us whether we made good seed-to-soil contact, avoided air pockets, and selected quality seed. We want to see that the seed gets off to a good start, which helps establish stand uniformity, begins to establish an effective root system, and sets the stage for potential yields. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
Monitoring plant health throughout the growing season is an essential step of the Maximum Farming System. While pressures from disease and weather vary from year to year, it is important to identify situations early and provide any stimulants necessary for the plant to respond effectively to that stress. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
By applying nitrogen and other vital nutrients at planting time, these nutrients are available where the plant needs them and when it needs them. #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
"I have used foliar applications as much as any one in the company. As a producer, we have so much money invested in growing a crop that I consider the foliar program to be the insurance program for everything we have invested." - Delk Crosier, Implementation Specialist #AgSpectrum #MaximumFarming
