Plant Requirements

Our approach is founded on basic science, and our system has the basic requirements needed for plants to achieve maximum potential. These requirements focus on developing the proper soil, making essential nutrients available, and having sufficient energy from the environment.  

Specifically, plants require the following to reach their maximum potential:

  • Water in the soil that contains dissolved oxygen
  • Nutrients in the proper concentration during each specific development stage
  • Optimized microbial community in the rhizosphere
  • Absence of toxins
  • Optimum amount of sunlight, carbon dioxide, and the right temperature

By establishing these requirements, the root system can fully develop allowing the plant to obtain the maximum amount of nutrients needed to grow. The Maximum Farming System focuses on establishing these basic requirements from the very beginning, while continually enhancing plant development throughout the growing season.
