Optimize® XC Inoculant

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

Up to 2X the rate of early nodulation for soybeans, with an extra-concentrated formulation

Optimize ® XC Inoculant is a retailed-applied dual-action technology that combines Bradyrhizobium japonicum with exclusive LCO (lipo-chitooligosaccharides) technology. 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 Optimize 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 Optimize XC Technology

 
Enhances mycorrhizal colonization, which increases functional root volume and helps the plant uptake more water and nutrients through the roots
 
Combines Bradyrhizobium japonicum and LCO, which can double the rate of early nodulation
 
Increased nitrogen fixation through nodule formation
 
Enhances nutrient 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

  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.

Nematicides

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.
