Ag Spectrum Company was founded in 1984 by six young men who were raised on family farms. These forward-looking entrepreneurs based their fledgling company on principles of basic science and designed a comprehensive systems approach to help the American farmer produce crops in the most cost-efficient manner possible. Today, that system is known as Maximum Farming®. 

With their farming backgrounds, Ag Spectrum’s owner directors understand the decisions and sacrifices farmers make every day. Many of them continue to farm and use Ag Spectrum products and technology in their own fields, giving them firsthand knowledge and insight into what works and what doesn’t. Nu-Till®, the recognizable name for the Maximum Farming System, describes the focus on nutrients and tillage practices.

With an ongoing commitment to sponsoring quality research at several universities and independent centers, Ag Spectrum continues to offer cutting-edge leadership to growers across the nation. The company’s emphasis on technology is illustrated through the employment of several programmers, mapping specialists, and technicians who provide farmers a field-integrated, GPS-guided, personalized management system to guide their most important cropping decisions.

Ag Spectrum has grown to include more than 150 representatives in 21 different states and remains singularly dedicated to developing better fields, better yields, and especially, better farmers. Contact us today and take your first step down the road to Maximum Farming.

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. 

Although we have been in business for 30 years, the marketplace has only initially begun to address global needs and embrace changes in agricultural production practices. 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.

Our Values

There are four primary core values that drive Ag Spectrum and the Maximum Farming System:

  • Systematic Approach
  • Education and Learning
  • Research and Basic Science
  • Maximizing the Grower’s Profitability

Ag Spectrum’s approach begins with basic science and research. The fundamental beliefs as to how a plant grows, the stresses it faces, and how to provide maximum energy to the plant in the right form, at the right time. Ag Spectrum has an on-going investment in non-biased, fundamental research. These researchers are an extension of the Ag Spectrum network.

The researchers present the research to the dealer network in the form of company and customer meetings, print publications and other communications. The dealer network in turn provides value to growers by sharing un-biased research and instrumental findings that will help advance their operations and improve profitability. 

At Ag spectrum we value:

  • The basic truths of science.
  • Educating growers on sustainable and productive agronomic practices and to make independent decisions about their products based on facts instead of emotion.
  • A systematic approach to crop production.
  • Partnerships with local, independent dealers 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.
  • Honesty and integrity in all that we do.
