Advances in technology have steadily increased crop yield for farmers in the past century. Finding and correcting the problems within a struggling crop is a multi-faceted process that involves constant inputs and modification. Only once the limiting factor in a crop is identified can it increase potential.
One way to conceptualize how a limiting factor holds the potential of your crops constant is with the Law of the Minimum, often illustrated using a barrel. The shortest stave in a barrel’s construction (the nutrient in shortest supply in terms of a crop) is what keeps material from being contained further.
In the case of a struggling crop, the major limiting factors are:
Prosoil’s line of products are designed to naturally mitigate the limiting factors (or lengthen the staves of a farm’s “barrel”) so that farmers can increase their yields come harvest time. All the while, Prosoil is helping the industry stray from using harsh chemicals and fertilizers by showing the benefits of biological farming. We at Prosoil believe that a firm biological foundation is essential to increasing yield, and therefore increasing the efficiency with which farmers grow crops.
