Optimize® XC Technology

Extra-concentrated formula. Combines LCO with rhizobia for increased nitrogen fixation efficiency in soybeans.

Breakthrough Performance, now in the industry's lowest application rate for soybeans

The extra-concentrated formulation of Optimize® XC technology can deliver breakthrough performance in the industry's lowest application rate: 0.75 fluid ounces per unit of seed. Optimize XC technology is a retailer-applied dual-action inoculant that delivers the benefits of a specially selected Bradyrhizobium japonicum inoculant along with LCO (lipo-chitooligosaccharide) molecules.

Benefits of Using Optimize XC Technology

More space on your seed for additional seed treatments
Includes an elite strain of Bradyrhizobium japonicum and LCO to help with effective nodulation
Increased nitrogen fixation through nodule formation
Enhanced nutrient availability which supports root and shoot growth
Broad seed treatment compatibility** with 120 days on-seed life with most seed treatments
A convenient, easy-to-handle package

How the Technology Works

  1. Needing nitrogen, the plant releases flavonoids to signal rhizobia.
  2. Sensing the flavonoids, the rhizobia signal LCO back to the plant.
  3. The plant can respond to the LCO, allowing the rhizobia to infect its roots.
  4. This symbiotic relationship creates nodules, which can help fix atmospheric nitrogen.

Nematodes have been stealing as much as 10% of yields and and getting away with it — until now. Treating seed with a broad-spectrum nematicide provides protection in the seed zone during critical early development stages.
