Three powerful technologies combined for your peas and lentils

TagTeam® LCO Technology microbial seed treatment helps unlock the nutrients in your soil so they’re more readily available to pea and lentil plants. To do so, 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

Together, they help you maximize your 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.
