TagTeam LCO  

TagTeam® LCO​

Three powerful technologies combine to build a better crop

TagTeam® LCO is the only triple-action granular inoculant that combines a specially selected Rhizobium inoculant with the phosphate solubilizing Penicillium bilaiae fungi and the proven performance of LCO (lipochitooligosaccharide) technology for increased nitrogen fixation.

Key benefits at a glance

  • Greater opportunity for the development of nitrogen-fixing nodules.
  • Increased nitrogen fixation and uptake through nodule formation.
  • Greater availability of soil and fertilizer phosphate.
  • Improved phosphate availability, which supports root and shoot growth.
  • Higher yield potential.

Pea: Results were collected from 18-farmer conducted, large-scale, side-by-side BioAdvantage Trials conducted in Alberta and Saskatchewan in 2015 and 2016.

Lentil: were collected from 16 farmer-conducted, large-scale, side-by-side BioAdvantage Trials conducted in Saskatchewan in 2015 and 2016.

How the technology works

TagTeam LCO Technology Diagram
Freeing Phosphate
Penicillium bilaiae releases bound mineral forms of soil and fertilizer phosphate, making it more available to the plant.

More Nitrogen
  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 infection can create nodules, which help fix atmospheric nitrogen.

TagTeam LCO is available in a granular formulation for peas and lentil crops.

TagTeam LCO is only available in Western Canada.​​​​​​

TagTeam® LCO application

TagTeam LCO is available in a granular formulation for pea and lentil.

Please read the label before application for complete use instructions.

TagTeam LCO granular should be applied directly with the seed in the seed row using a granular tank for application. Application rates vary according to row spacing (refer to Table 1 for details).

  • Fill the tank to match or slightly exceed seed requirements. Do not overfill the tank to avoid compaction.
  • Pour into tank through a screen.
  • If augering TagTeam LCO granular, do so at low speeds to avoid damage to the granules.
  • Do not mix TagTeam LCO in the same tank with seed or fertilizer.
  • Do not leave TagTeam LCO granular in the tank overnight as condensation can cause lumps to form.
