TagTeam is a dual-action inoculant that provides the balanced nutrition of phosphate and nitrogen by combining the active ingredient from JumpStart® with a nitrogen-fixing bacteria. This unique combination results in improved nodule formation, increased nitrogen fixation, improved phosphate availability and enhanced nutrient availability that leads to improved yield potential.
Phosphate is crucial to nitrogen fixation
Research shows that phosphate nutrition has a significant, positive impact on nitrogen fixation.1 Good phosphate nutrition results in more nodules being formed and more active nitrogen fixation.
Phosphate helps move the energy from photosynthesis to the roots, where it is needed to fuel nitrogen fixation
More extensive root growth provides greater opportunity for the development of nitrogen-fixing nodules
Faster development of active nodules results in greater nitrogen fixation
Phosphate nutrition increases the number and size of nodules,and the amount of nitrogen fixed by the plant
