TagTeam® LCO XC Inoculant

Extra-concentrated formula. Triple action inoculant combines LCO, phosphate-solubilizing microbes and rhizobia for increased yield potential.

Up to 2X more nodules, plus more available phosphate, in an extra-concentrated formulation

TagTeam® LCO XC Inoculant is a triple-action technology that combines Bradyrhizobium japonicum with the exclusive LCO (lipo-chitooligosaccharides) technology, and the phosphate-solubilizing benefits of Penicillium bilaiae. In 2016, a growth chamber study showed that combining LCO with rhizobia increases the rate of early soybean nodulation, resulting in 2X as many nodules compared to rhizobia alone. Plus, the LCO in TagTeam LCO XC Inoculant enhances mycorrhizal colonization, which increases functional root volume and helps the plant uptake more water and nutrients through the root.

Benefits of Using TagTeam LCO XC Technology

Combines Bradyrhizobium japonicum and LCO, which can double the rate of early nodulation
Ehnahces mycorrhizal colonization, which increases functional root volume and helps the plant uptake more water and nutrients through the roots
Increases nitrogen fixation through nodule formation
Enhances phosphate availability, which supports root and shoot growth
Broad seed treatment compatibility with 120 days on-seed life with most seed treatments
The industry's lowest application rate for soybeans — leaving more space on your seed for additional treatments (0.75 fl oz per unit of seed with minimum of 1.5 fl oz total volume with water when applied alone)
A convenient, easy-to-handle package

How the Technology Works:

Freeing Phosphate: Penicillium bilaiae releases bound mineral forms of soil and fertilizer phosphate, making it more available for the plant to use.

More Nitrogen: Needing nitrogen, the plant releases flavonoids to signal rhizobia. Sensing the flavonoids, the rhizobia signal LCO back to the plant. The plant can respond to the LCO, allowing the rhizobia to infect its roots. This symbiotic relationship can create nodules, which 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.
