Three powerful technologies combined for your peanuts

TagTeam® LCO Technology microbial seed treatment helps improve your peanut crop’s access to phosphate, nitrogen and other nutrients, which ultimately can maximize yield potential. This triple-action inoculant from Monsanto BioAg combines three powerful technologies:

  • A nitrogen-fixing rhizobia inoculant
  • The proven performance of the LCO (lipo-chitooligosaccharides) molecule
  • The phosphate-solubilizing benefits of Penicillium bilaiae

Healthy Plants Mean Higher Yields

We asked Georgia peanut farmers to share their experiences field-testing the active ingredients that make up TagTeam® LCO Technology for Peanuts. Watch them tell, in their own words, how the new triple-action inoculant helped them maximize yield potential.

The Benefits of Using TagTeam® LCO Technology

Greater availability of soil and fertilizer nutrients — including phosphate, which supports root and shoot growth — as well as nitrogen.
Greater opportunity for the development of nitrogen-fixing nodules. (Why are nodules so important? View our infographic.)
Increased nitrogen fixation through nodule formation.

How It Works

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.
