Three powerful technologies, now in the industry’s lowest application rate*

TagTeam® LCO XC Technology microbial seed treatment helps increase nutrient uptake in soybeans by combining three powerful technologies:

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

Monsanto BioAg is proud to offer this new, extra-concentrated formulation of TagTeam® LCO XC Technology . It delivers the power of our triple-action inoculant in the industry’s lowest application rate* for multi-action inoculants: 1.5 fluid ounces per 100 lbs of seed.

The Benefits of Using TagTeam® LCO 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.
Greater availability of soil and fertilizer phosphate, which supports root and shoot growth.
120 days on-seed life (with many seed treatments).**

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.
