Liebig’s Law of Minimums


In every field there is a limiting factor, it is a simple fact of life. In 1828, agricultural scientist Carl Sprengel observed this, calling it the theory of minimums, later popularized by Justus von Liebig as “Liebig’s Law of Minimums” as we know it today. Liebig’s Law of Minimums states yield is controlled by the scarcest resource or limiting factor. The goal of our high yield concept is to have the scarcest resource be environmental, not a lack of nutrients or weed competition or plant stress. Understanding how to identify the limiting factor on your farm will help you make agronomic decisions to increase yield with a high return on investment.
