Breakthrough performance, now in the industry’s lowest application ra​te*

Optimize® XC Technology microbial seed treatment is a dual-action, retailer-applied product that helps give soybeans a healthy start. It can help increase nitrogen fixation, ultimately helping maximize yield potential, thanks to a specially selected Bradyrhizobium japonicum inoculant along with the proven LCO (lipo-chitooligosaccharides) molecule.

This new, extra-concentrated formulation from Monsanto BioAg delivers breakthrough performance with the industry’s lowest application rate* for multi-action inoculants: 1.5 fluid ounces per 100 lbs. of seed.

The Benefits of Using Optimize® XC Technology

More space on your seed for additional seed treatments.
Greater opportunity for the development of nitrogen-fixing nodules.
Increased nitrogen fixation through nodule formation.
Enhanced nutrient capability, which supports root and shoot growth.
120 days on-seed life (with many seed treatments).**

​How It 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.
